Consultant Solicitors in Dumfries 

As Dumfries Solicitors, we represent clients in courts across Scotland.  Our most frequent appearances are in Dumfries. We are happy to takeConsultant Solicitors in Dumfries agency instructions on this basis.

Dumfries Solicitors face carefully prepared and energetic Road Traffic prosecutions from the local Procurator Fiscal service.  The service is aided by an experienced Road Traffic department in Dumfries & Galloway Constabulary, who undertake perhaps the most thorough preparation for Road Traffic cases in Scotland.  As consultant solicitors in Dumfries, we can assist solicitors needing representation in the south of Scotland with advice and local representation.

We take referrals from Scottish solicitors for all motoring offences. We maintain the tradition of the Scottish referral bar. Solicitors are assured that their client is receiving high quality specialised representation from us as consultant Solicitors in Dumfries, whist their underlying business relationship with the client is maintained and fostered throughout. We are happy to discuss individual cases.  We do this in confidence with solicitors whose clients face prosecution for any road traffic offence.

Cross-border representation

As consultant solicitors in Dumfries, we act for the clients of lawyers from other jurisdictions, most commonly from England & Wales. Through ongoing liaison, solicitors are assured that the business relationship they have with their client is maintained and fostered throughout the Scottish proceedings.  Clients enjoy the reassurance of getting proper advice in Scots law, and outstanding representation.  Solicitors who are qualified outside of Scotland should note that they cannot represent their clients in Scottish courts.  They require a Scottish principal to take instructions and obtain Crown disclosure. Where a solicitor from outside of Scotland holds himself out as a Scottish solicitor, he commits a criminal offence under section 31 of the Solicitors (Scotland) Act 1985. A Scottish solicitor acting as agent for an English solicitor also commits a criminal offence in terms of section 26 of the Act.  If you have a client who requires the advice of a Road Traffic or Dumfries Solicitor, please be in touch.
