A Akhtar, Dumfries JP Court

“Right from the start, you really listened to what I had to say. I’m not a dangerous driver and was angry to be accused of that. I am not used to courts and I felt I had no place in the criminal justice system.

“You saved my licence and you have restored my faith. I’m pleased to have used you – a good Dumfries Solictor.”

Thank you.”

– Phil Wiget, Dumfries Sheriff Court

“I found Scottish Driving Law to be excellent.  Mr MacPherson is a very good road traffic lawyer in whom I had great confidence, as soon as we spoke during our initial case discussion.  He did an excellent job for me at the Dumfries JP Court in March.  Highly recommended.”

– Francis James, Dumfries Justice of the Peace Court
