Keeping you driving

Prior to using Scullion LAW I was represented by a different solicitors. On the day of the trial, I had been told clearly to plead guilty to a dangerous driving charge. I did not want to plead guilty on that charge as it comes with a minimum mandatory 12 suspension if your licence and many more issues along the way. I was not happy in the advice I was given which resulted in me asking the sheriff for more time to seek out professional advice in which he granted me 2 weeks. I immediately called Scullion LAW and I can’t tell you how happy I was I did so. Nothing was at all a problem for them and even though we had a small period of time until the trial Scullion LAW kept me up to date and reassured that I was in good hands. Overnight I went from a person of no hope of keeping his licence and losing my job as a result to feeling I had someone on my side and willing to put the effort in to save my licence. The end resulting in having the dangerous driving charge dropped to a charge of careless driving which resulted in me receiving 5 penalty points and a £250 fine. I can’t tell you how relived I was at the outcome. Once again I would like to thank all at Scullion LAW and a special thanks to Urfan for his professionalism on the day.

Kris Buchanan recently represented our son for a traffic offence, it was brilliant watching such a good lawyer in court, any worries before entering the courtroom soon vanished as Kris’ experience in such cases was obvious. Many thanks Kris, would highly recommend you to anyone in need of a good lawyer.

Michael was a very warm and upbeat guy who made sure I was in the loop at every stage and set reasonable expectations. He put me at easy during my court date and made me feel relaxed during a very stressful time. He was very professional and reliable.
