Our Advocates

At Patterson Law we always strive to achieve a balance between a brilliant but, at the same time, cost effective service.

We believe that we achieve that balance with our team of court room advocates.

Over the years we have built up a panel of Barristers who specialise in road traffic law.

If your case requires an advocate, we will chose a Barrister local to your court.

Our Barristers are familiar faces to the Magistrates.

We believe that using a local advocate improves communication with the court and the Crown Prosecution service.

Why not instruct a local solicitor?

You are of course free to choose whoever you want to represent you and your case at court.

However, it’s our opinion that lawyers should not dabble in road traffic law.

There are lots of solicitors who claim to understand road traffic law, but who specialise in general criminal law and don’t have genuine expertise.

If you want the best result then you need to instruct an expert.

Road traffic law is highly complex and Emma Patterson and her team have spent the last 20 years advising and representing people in this area of law.

Our fixed fee service includes representation by one of our Barristers at one hearing.

Your Barrister will have been fully briefed on your case and will speak to you at length before your case is called.

Your Barrister will speak to your lawyer at Patterson Law in the days before the final hearing.

Thus, being fully prepared to deal with your case.

    Contacted Patterson Law following a Police stop whilst unknowingly driving without insurance.
    (Viewed and bought a car believing
    … More the owner had it insured, stopped by Police after only a few miles, car seized and fixed penalty for no insurance. Turns out the owners partner had transferred it to another car without telling him)
    Discussed options with Patterson, likelihood of success and impact of failure.
    Rejected the fixed penalty notice and proceeded with "special reasons" to avoid IN10 conviction.
    Great support from Patterson Law over several months whist trying to deal with magistrates court.
    Unfortunately the magistrates court went ahead without informing me or the solicitors and IN10 was issued with 6 points and a fine.
    Patterson Law supported in the next steps to take to County court and advised/ assigned a barrister who I met 30 mins before the hearing. We discussed the case and he had a clear understanding of the special reasons. Well presented to the Judge and I was given opportunity to stand and give evidence.
    Positive outcome with all points removed.
    Particularly good support from my case progression officer, Ian. I was kept informed in a timely manner and feel the advice given was appropriate for my particular case.
    I would use them again without hesitation.

    I was new to living back in UK and had a traffic incident. I called Patterson Law, they responded immediately. They were … More professional and extremely helpful and disclosed all options and costs. The advise they gave me was very settling. I took their advise and the result was just what I wanted. Then out of the blue unexpected Patterson Law called me 10 days later to see how I got on and made sure the outcome ha day best interests at heart. The professionalism and care was outstanding and I would recommend anyone who needs advise and help to contact them.
