Legal Aid

Can you get Legal Aid?

It’s highly unlikely that anyone charged with what is classed as a “minor road traffic offence” will be able to get legal aid to fund their representation.

The court only tends to grant legal aid to people who are at risk of imprisonment.

At Patterson Law we only deal with cases on a private fee paying basis.

We try and make sure that our fees are as reasonable as possible and, if we win, we try and get as much of your fees back for you in the form of a defendant’s costs order.

    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.
