I would like to say thanks for Mr Robertson’s help. I am a professional driver and this was an excellent outcome for a very serious offence.
Glasgow Justice of the Peace matter

Euan conducts his business with the quiet confidence of a man who is on top of his game. He is clearly expert in all aspects of motoring law and enjoys the benefits accruing from significant experience and relevant personal contacts within the Scottish legal system. I would therefore not hesitate to recommend Euan to anyone requiring professional legal assistance.

Great professional advice and help from Euan. As it happened I didn’t need to go to court, so the lobbying behind the scenes was obviously fantastic! I would have no hesitation in recommending Euan, his whole approach is honest, upfront and he clearly gets results.
Frank McDaniel

Euan, just a short note to thank you for your support on my recent driving offence case. Having unfortunately been through something similar last year, the level of support you gave me compared to the other organisation I used last year was significantly better. Your approach, understanding and communication was excellent and I never felt I was bothering you, even with the silliest of questions! Also, on the trial day, the way you made me feel at ease but kept very focused on the end result was excellent! I will certainly be recommending you to anyone who unfortunately needs similar support as I did. Thanks again!
Gavin Speirs, Glasgow Justice of the Peace Court

On my recent dealings with you I would not hesitate to recommend you. If I needed you in the future I would call on you again. Thanking you for help I have received from you over the last few months.

I was on 9 points with another 6 points to come on. Euan managed to get one case dropped and the other Exceptional Hardship. I have kept my licence and am still driving! I can’t recommend Euan enough – fantastic work.
