Mr Mackay and Mr Freeman were both extremely professional and realistic from day one in their approach to my case. Their knowledge of the law is exceptional and their trial methods are brilliant. Worth every penny as they managed to save my license and take advantage of the police being and the fiscal being unprepared and unprofessional. I observed during my trial that Mr Mackay's extensive experience of previously being a procurator fiscal certainly spooked the court and the police which was entertaining to say the least. I am delighted with the outcome of 5 points and a reasonable fine. Due to the nature of the case, I was facing a possible ban. Hopefully I won’t find myself in this situation again however if I do, I know these two gentlemen will be my first point of contact.

Great result for me which is what matters but I initially found the clerical problems worrying. Wrong address, issues with invoicing and failed to call to discuss the case on the date and time agreed.
I am glad I stuck with them and they achieved a great result. Thankyou!

What can I say the whole team at Road Traffic Expert were professional , friendly , surportive and went out their way to walk us through what was a completely incorrect allegation of the road traffic act by the police. Richard and his team were in court 3 times arguing the case and with their technical knowledge of the law and ability to prove inaccuracies of the prosecution the case was eventually thrown out.
If it was possible to give 6 stars and a bonus ball to these guys they would get it.
All that can be said is a heart felt THANK YOU

From the moment of that first call, to the conclusion of the case; Richard Freeman & Co are there with you.
Richard spoke with me in length about my case initially and he felt that this was a case which could be defended with good arguments given my predicament.
After my case getting adjourned twice (and me having to be at the court each time) my case was deserted due to one of the prosecution’s witnesses not able to attend as their back was “so sore” but didn’t realise this until 9:30am on the day of the third trial.
Richard was not the lawyer defending me on the three occasions I had to go to court, however the gentlemen that did always got in touch the day before to go over the case and go over how the day would go. At the end of the call they would suggest a time to meet up prior to the case in the morning.
Thank you for the help, advice and being that supportive person at a time of of panic when you first get served your court or charges paper.
If needed, I’ll definitely use Richard Freeman’s services again!

Having never had to use a lawyer before,one phone call to Roadtrafficexpert with just an outline of what had happened and a return phone call from Richard Freeman got me on the right track.
He told me what to do( I would have done the opposite!), and then when it came to the crunch on court day,well... Mr Mackay who represented me due to Richard being on holiday kept me at ease. He just kept discussing things and as I answered he was noting down,things that I would never have thought were relevant, but come his turn in the courtroom, he was tremendous and I ended up with a far better outcome than I could have imagined.
For me,I cant recommend this team highly enough,from dealing with the very efficient office right through to great time keeping for a meeting,if you have a traffic charge give them a call,your licence and insurance premiums depend on them.

I was being charged for drunk while in charge of a vehicle, I was deeply distressed due to my licence being vital for my work and loosing the case could have resulted in me loosing everything. I was being told by people left, right and centre that I had no chance I looked around the internet and discovered Richard he immediately put me at ease his knowledge of road traffic law was second to none and he was able to have me acquitted of the charge I was speechless nobody could believe it. I couldn’t recommend Richard enough as he is an expert in his profession and will not leave a stone unturned in your case choosing RTE has not only saved my licence but has saved my livelihood.

I was facing a ban for dangerous driving.
Ended up getting a lesser charge of careless driving.
3 points and a fine rather than a year's ban.

Following my arrest on two serious charges, which were completely bogus - the arresting officers sought to suppress the charge bar CCTV footage - footage which could demonstrate my innocence.
The police flatly refused to release the required footage, and sought to forcefully bring the discussion to an abrupt end.
Richard was genuinely angered by this, and fought hard to protect my position. He immediately wrote up the necessary court papers, and raised proceedings in the name of the Chief Constable - requesting that the Sheriff order Police Scotland to release the requested footage and audio without delay.
We were successful in this, and obtained the "missing" footage - which had been captured on equipment that "wasn't working that day".
On the morning of trial, Richard put forward persuasive arguments to the PF - which convinced them to completely drop the serious driving charge, and accept my Not Guilty plea to this.
The PF was further persuaded to remove all lies and exaggerations from the "police obstruction" charge, so that the only thing that remained in the charge was the truth itself.
Thanks to Richard's finely honed advocacy skills, encyclopedic knowledge of law, and expert negotiation skills -
I received a Not Guilty verdict for the serious driving charge, and an Absolute Discharge for the police obstruction.
During the trial Richard became more animated, moved around the courtroom with a confident ease, and looked like he truly belonged there.
An expert among experts, who represented me fearlessly, and carried a distinct air of gravitas.
It was captivating - like watching Mozart play the piano.
The closing arguments Richard presented to the Sheriff were so compelling that he didn't even get the chance to finish them.
They were delivered eloquently, and the Sheriff seemed to be enjoying listening to them as much as I was.
To my satisfaction - the Sheriff interrupted at around half way through - and announced that he was granting the Absolute Discharge we were seeking.
Richard is a pleasure to work with, and I am delighted with the representation I received.
His admin staff - Eitan, Karen, and Rachel - are sincerely nice, and always happy to talk to you at length about any concerns you have.
Richard's fellow Advocate - Mr Mckay - is a gentleman, and equally competent.
I can say with confidence - the only thing that prevented a miscarriage of justice was the dedicated intervention of Richard Freeman.
Mr G - Central Scotland

Review by Towlson Jorik5 months ago
Outstanding from Richard and his team, with special mention to William Mackay. Had the prospect of losing my licence after being caught speeding at 129mph with an additional charge of dangerous driving included. Before the speed was taking into consideration best outcome would have been because of the dangerous driving charge a minimum 12 month ban and an extended test. Needing my licence for my job Mr Mackay was able to persuade the Sheriff to reduce my charge so not only walked out with my licence but left with just 3 points and small fine.

Richard Freeman Solicitors had the Prosecution drop their DDC case and also a no insurance charge, thankful for their services.
Review by Hasibush Valois5 months ago
Due to the unique circumstances of my case I was due to lose my license. After being flashed twice by speeding cameras doing almost double the speed limit due to a fault in my cruise control that misinformed the driver of the cars speed Richard Freeman got me out of court with my license. No ban, No fine, No points. The entire case gone from my record. Freeman saved my license due to the cars malfunction that informed me that after I set my cruise control to 30 that it was doing said speed when in reality the car was doing over 50. 100% would recommend. Would rate 10 stars if I could!

I can’t thank Richard Freeman enough he saved my sons license with his experience and knowledge, he put our mind at ease from the first phone call right up to the trial. On the day of the trial facing a drunk in charge, and only having a licence for 3 months we thought it was a good possibility that 10 points or a ban could be the outcome but Richard was fantastic, left no stone unturned, his preparation and deliverance definitely was the reason the case was admonished. He certainly knows what he is doing and I’m so glad we chose him. We certainly made the right decision. He is highly recommended

Having found myself in a perilous situation where my livelihood was at risk through no fault of my own, I knew I had to get a professional to assist me. From the initial meeting right through to the case being dropped, Richard and his team were consummate professionals. Someone was always available to help regardless of the time which again made it a less stressful experience. Would highly recommend Richard and his team.
