Patterson Law’s Success Rates

We believe in telling you how well we do on behalf of clients!

You need to know these things so that you can make an educated decision on who to instruct to look after your road traffic offence case.

Most Solicitors do not keep track of their success rates. We are proud of what we achieve on your behalf and want to be able to back up our claim to be brilliant road traffic lawyers.

Patterson Law are not aware of any other firm of solicitors willing to tell you how well they do for their clients. We are happy to tell you. Whenever we finish a case we add the result to our database to enable us to keep track of how well we are doing.

  • Overall success rate at avoiding guideline disqualification (by defending the allegation / achieving a reduced period of disqualification according to guidelines / arguing exceptional hardship / arguing special reasons) – 90%
  • Case successfully defended when advice given to plead not guilty – 92%
  • Allegation dropped at the police station stage after being instructed to try and avoid proceedings altogether – 62%
  • Defendants costs order awarded by court when case withdrawn or defended at trial – 95%
  • New drivers at risk of revocation for accumulating six points in the first two years after passing test – 88% avoided six points and therefore avoided revocation.
  • Clients at risk of imprisonment according to guidelines – 88% avoided imprisonment
  • Appeals won – 65%. Where defendants have represented themselves at the Magistrates’ Court or been represented by other Solicitors and lost, 65% of the time we have the decision overturned on appeal.

*these statistics cover cases up until 01.05.2023

If you are thinking of asking anyone else to represent you, you should ask if they can match these success rates. If they refuse to discuss this issue or don’t keep these type of figures you should ask yourself why?

Here at Patterson Law we believe in total transparency. How else can you make an informed decision about the which solicitors will do the best job defending your licence?

  • Avatar Kim Forrester ★★★★★ in the last week
    I called Patterson Law this morning to ask for advice regarding a driving offence. From first answering the call, they were … More professional, supportive, efficient and very reassuring. I spoke with Ellen as the legal advisor, who could not have been more helpful and really open/transparent about my options based on her experience. I would not hesitate to use Patterson Law in future and would recommend to anyone. Thank you so much!

    I was able to make an informed decision after speaking to Rachel about my incident. Although it wasn't the direction … More I initially thought should be taken Rachel's legal advice persuaded me to rethink my strategy. All the information given verbally was backed up by a very accurate email and followed up by Stephanie in a very professional and friendly manner to ensure I could and had made the correct decision. A very friendly but professional company who put the customer as the priority rather than take a case on just for the income. If I ever have another legal motoring problem I will most definatly use the services of Patterson Law.
