"When the Police stopped me for going through a red light I pleaded with them to reconsider as I was sure it was not red. I told them that my job was on the line but they wouldn not listen.

"Hi, would just like to thank Richard and his great team for the help at both court cases at Hamilton and Aberdeen, went into this with 6 points on my license and still have 6, both cases a great success well done Richard and your team, a credit to your profession."
I just wanted to thank you again for helping me in my most desperate hour of need. I did not even think I had a chance, yet you got me off completely. You are an absolute genius!"
"I was facing a ban which could have had serious implications to my work as I am self-employed when charged I was unsure what to do but arranged a meeting to discuss and from that point on Richard and his team put me at ease and gave me confidence all the way through the long drawn out process. This is a specialist area and their knowledge and experience means they are in a strong position before you start. A year down the line they managed to get my case thrown out in court so it has worked out the best investment I have made.
I would suggest anyone who is charged in a road traffic offence to gives them a call - I would just like to say that I was very satisfied with the outcome in my case and would be happy to refer others to your firm. I was found not guilty and kept my license.
Thank you so much."
"Not only did Richard Freeman save my licence, but my livelihood. I am forever grateful for his acute attention to detail, and his expertise and professionalism throughout my case. Mr Technicality won the day. I will do everything in my power never to require his services again, but I will be recommending him to friends and family."
" Words cannot express how eternally grateful I am to you Richard for your efforts getting me off with no points or penalty. I am so relieved. I hope not to be in such a predicament again, but if I or anyone else I know find themselves needing a lawyer, you are definitely the person being called."
"I instructed Richard Freeman of www.roadtrafficexpert.com to represent me in a careless driving charge in Dumfries. The police accused me of driving without due care and attention by overtaking them and then undertaking another vehicle in the fast lane of a motorway. I had a clean licence and could have taken the points but I felt I wasn’t guilty of careless driving.
Richard explained the process and his fee which wasn’t insubstantial but I felt I needed a road traffic specialist to handle my case and he was confident that we could win.
After Richard fully investigated the case, I met him in his office and he discussed the evidence, the law and his proposed strategy in court for the trial.
Unfortunately he wasn’t available on the trial diet but he advised me of this in advance and instructed Senior Counsel to represent me in court. He reassured me that the QC was very good and that he had discussed the strategy with him at length.
I could see that this was so during the course of the trial by the way the QC cross examined the police officers. At the end of the trial I was found not guilty.
I would thoroughly recommend Richard and his team. He always responded to my questions and his immediate assessment of my prospects was spot on, as was his court strategy."

Offence: Careless Driving
I was so impressed by Richard Freemans dedication towards me as a client and the understanding of how essential my licence is to my business as well as my family.
He objected to nearly every argument the Crown Prosecution presented and his dedication to me as a client to not let anything lie, to challenge every argument presented was admirable.
Initially I thought the fees were pretty high but in actual fact he’s worth double. The threat of serving a 6 month ban would definitely have hindered the progression of my business, his support in fighting tooth and nail to have my case thrown out of court for insufficient evidence I am truly thankful.
I travel 35,000 miles a year so my licence is everything and I will no doubt require Richard Freemans services again, I will use no other lawyer and can’t recommend this guy enough. I know the above sounds too good to be true but he has just saved me from losing my livelihood. Incredible lawyer.

Offence: Failure to Identify Driver
"Richard was tireless in his pursuit of all options for a defence. I learned that it was well worth defending my case to prevent excessive points and a fine against my name. Richards personal intervention in my trial utilising his considerable skills as an advocate secured a win with no blemish to my licence. "
" Hi Richard,
I just wanted to thank you again for this morning’s outcome. I was extremely relieved to come away without a disqualification.
I’m sure you’ll understand when I say that I hope not to need your services again in the future but if any of my friends ever find themselves in a similar situation I would definitely refer them to you.
Again, thank you
" I drive for a living & already had six points on my licence when I was alleged to have run a red light in full view of two police officers and in a separate incident, alleged to been ’dangerous driving’ my motorcycle also in full view of two police officers.
The outlook was 99% twelve months ban & losing my job, plus having to resit three tests to get all my licences back. Enter Richard from the Road Traffic Experts. In what literally left jaws on floors of myself, the Judge &, the police officer who had just given evidence, Richard had the red light case dropped.
For the next case Richard had my dangerous driving allegation reduced to careless to which I received a measly three points & 300 fine. How good is that :D Richard is a guy you can depend on if you are in trouble with your licence, who’s easy to talk to and in my opinion the best in his business.
It’s like that & that’s the way it is. (RUN DMC ’83)
M McGuigan "
" I was accused of driving 73mph in a 30 Mph zone, I went to Richard and met with him personally to discuss the case. When the citation came through it confirmed that it was dangerous driving. He agreed to take on my case and explained the seriousness of the charge I was faced with and that I would be facing a ban of proven guilty. This was a huge blow to me. I was very impressed with Richard’s tactics in court as he challeneged every piece of evidence, He proved that the speed could not be relied upon to make my case a dangerous driving charge and was reduced to a careless driving charge which only left me with 7 points endorsed onto my licence with no disqualification.
To say I was relieved would be an understatement. I cannot thank Richard and the team enough for all they did for me throughout my case, I thought there was no hope of me keeping my licence. I have experienced first hand why Richard is called the Road traffic expert and will highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in the position that I was in.
Thanks again. "
" Thank you all, especially Mr FREEMAN for all the professional, long-drawn out professional and sensitive legal activities on my behalf.
NOBODY COULD EXPECT A MORE EFFICIENT, DECISIVE, PERSONAL SERVICE.
During the difficult and at times bewildering legal situation I was in, Mr Freeman made me feel that my personal worries and fears were also taken into account. IN OTHER WORDS YOU FEEL EVERY WORD IS BEING LISTENED TO AND EVERY LITTLE LEGAL DETAIL IN YOUR FAVOUR IS BEING WORKED ON IN YOUR INTEREST. You have a massive weight taken off your shoulders, given a chance to go over every scenario - and will be able to contact his excellent staff who will support you in any way they can.
Best Wishes. "
Mr. S. Joyce
I was very happy with the way Richard presented my case and saved me from a 6 month ban. He came up with some excellent arguments which led to my acquittal which I am indebted to him for.
Best Regards. "
" Thank you, thank you, thank you. I simply cannot say it enough. The other driving lawyer said I should just accept it, he could not win with the evidence against me, but you said you could win and did. You are awesome! From now on I will recommend you to anyone I know that is charged with a driving offence.
Best Regards. "
" Hi Richard,
Thanks very much for your expert help. I’m so relieved and thrilled with the better than expected outcome. Thanks for your support and miracle working!
Hopefully I won’t need traffic legal help again (I’ve learned my lesson!) but I’ll definitely recommend your services in future.
" Hi Richard, I was going through a very difficult time in my life and I am ashamed to say I did some very stupid thing’s over a short period of time. I’ve got a great career that I am very passionate about and nearly lost everything. In the space of 2 years Richard got me through not one or two but three cases, the third case , which I had prepared for the very worst got thrown out! I am still blown away. Richard is not only seriously skilled in what he does, his people skills are second to none, he’s human and treats you like a human. Richard knows exactly what he is doing, he is completely straight with you and will blow you away in the court room, he doesn’t miss a thing. I could have lost everything if it wasn’t for Richard, he is worth every penny and more. I trust no one but I can honestly say that I completely trust in Richard and I can not thank him enough for everything.
Don’t waste your money anywhere else. Richard is the only man I would trust to defend me in court. I will always be grateful. Thank you so much Richard.
Again Thank you Richard You really have blown me away
" I wish to offer my gratitude to Mr Freeman and his associate Mr McKay I cannot thank you enough! I was so stressed for the passed year. I received 3 penalty points and a fine of 300 pounds which was due to you both speaking up for me.
Should any of my family or friends require legal advise or assistance I will not hesitate to recommend your services!
" Again, I would like to thank you for your expert representation and I will certainly be recommending your services if friends or family ever need legal assistance. You have made such a difference to Elaine and I’s future as a result of the hard work you put into my case. "
Mr. V "
" Dear Richard.
I have been meaning to write to you for sometime. Firstly, I wanted to let you know that Craig has recently undergone surgery for a hip replacement, which was a complete success, it was a long operation and he will be unable to weight-bear for 3 to 6 months, nevertheless it is fantastic that they have been able to fit a prosthetic hip joint finally, we are over the moon as you can imagine. He will still need further surgery on his stomach and foot, but it feels like at last we are getting our life back on track.
I wanted to thank you so much for all you have done for Craig, when I looked you up on the internet, Craig had only a small chance of surviving and I felt completely lost and alone, not knowing where to turn, having never dealt with the police or the legal system in this kind of situation before, I really didn’t know what to expect or how to get Craig’s side of the story across. I thank God that I got in touch with you,Your support and calm, knowledgeable approach has been very,very reassuring throughout, I felt able to leave this with you and concentrate on getting Craig better.
You and your firm have been so professional and yet sympathetic and an absolute rock. Always returning my calls and nothing being too much trouble.
Thank you so much for all you have done for Craig and myself.
