Our Legal Expertise


We don’t want your money unless we can genuinely help! Every case is initially assessed by Emma Patterson, our Primary Motoring Solicitor and legal spokesperson to the Association of British Drivers.

We are often referenced in the press in motoring offence related articles such as this one in the Daily Mail

Additionally Emma is often asked to take part in media interviews such as this recent BBC Radio interview with Mark Forrest discussing some of the more frequently misunderstood motoring laws and offences:

“Firstly, can I thank you and Emma for your time and help today. I called several legal firms … and to say that you stood out from the crowd is such a massive understatement. Right from my first call in you all acted so different to everyone else.”

Read What Our Client Say About Us;

“At first I was rather sceptical about using a firm that I had never heard of and that were based many miles from me. I certainly needn’t of worried. You, personally, have a very calming nature and I found it very easy to talk to you and, in return, you made everything as clear as possible to me.” “I was concerned that I would not meet my barrister until shortly before my court appearance, but once again I need not have worried as Vanessa was very good at allaying my anxieties and was fantastic in court."

"The case was adjourned for a week – for very clever legal reasons that were far beyond me!” “Overall service from everyone was simply fantastic. Everyone I spoke to worked extremely professionally and diligently in overturning my driving conviction. I would recommend you to all my friends and colleagues.” “Thank you so much Emma. The answer put my husband’s mind at rest. He now feels he can get a job without worrying too much about his driving licence. I am so glad to have found this service and hope to use it a lot more in the future.” “Bless you and your firm – you are a credit to the industry and a blessing to those in distress – I can guarantee you I will refer anyone who is need of help in your firm’s direction.”
