    Exceptional Service and Support.
    My case officer, Mia, was a credit to the company, helpful, efficient and supportive. Communication
    … More flowed regularly and was clear and concise. Patterson Law were able to secure a reduced driving ban which was enforced as Time Served and so i was on the road the following day! My Barrister was informative, honest and very helpful and even better at putting me at ease in the witness box at Crown Court! Cannot thank Patterson Law enough for their handling of my case... Thank you !

    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.
