Testimonials


Thank you for all your help. My case has taken a long time to come to a conclusion but I am happy I took your advice. I would also like to thank Kirsten Ferguson who took my trial for me as she was very professional. I will have no hesiatation in recomending others to you in the future.
, Glasgow Justice of the Peace

Morning, I would like to express my gratitude for the service provided by your company on securing a not guilt verdict for my speeding and 172 charge. From the outset your company put my mind at rest at what was a very stressful time, the case took over 15 months in it's entirety and 3 visits to court. All the way through the proceedings I felt totally at ease I was in good hands. I particularly would like to thank Ms Ferguson who defended me in court, she is very knowledgeable in her field and struck a good rapport with the court and PF alike. I was on nine points at the time of my offence with a potential ban looming, after the court appearance I drove away my license intact, for which I am extremely grateful. Many many thanks RTL and Miss Ferguson in particular.

Time is of the essence in these cases as we need to do everything we can to secure the evidence before destruction and possible problems for you at the trial.

Provide us with contact details and we will call you at a convenient time. remember that to secure an acquittal in cases of this type you need expert help and you need it fast,

Possible Outcomes of Failing to Provide a Breath Test

Failing to provide a breath sample for analysis is a common charge and one that carries a long disqualification from driving as the most likely outcome. A one way valve is fitted into most EC/IR Intoximeter breath testing devices used in police stations throughout Scotland.

This means that if a simple fitting error occurs you can blow and blow and until the walls of Jericho come tumbling down but the machine will not register your sample.

It is therefore very important if you consider that such a thing has occurred that you contact a specialist road traffic solicitor who will do all that he can to preserve evidence for you and secure your defence.

The alternative is to lose your licence. Often for up to 2 years.

Get a specialist lawyer who will challenge the lack of such evidence and do his best to secure an acquittal for you. For a solicitor who knows how to approach this type of case and the issues that are to be considered when challenging such evidence you really should rely on a specialist law firm.
