CONTRARY to the Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 5(1)(a)

The Brief: Michael Lyon Solicitors were instructed to defend the case as recognised specialist road traffic lawyers in .

The Evidence: The Police statements detailed a sequence of events that confirmed the correct procedures had been followed. From initial arrest to subsequent caution and charge, there was nothing exceptional. The intoximeter forms confirmed the terms of the statements.

The Outcome: The case proceeded to trial at Glasgow District Court in October 2008 and our client was found not guilty of drink driving. A submission of no case to answer was upheld. We are not willing to disclose the basis of our defence although can confirm we have had success in various Courts in with the same point.

“I contacted Michael Lyon Solicitors through a media friend who Michael had defended a number of years ago. I really didn’t hold out much hope as I felt that I would simply have to accept the inevitable. I was aware the allegation of drink driving was serious and was probably only looking for a bit of damage limitation.

After six months of various Court hearings, the case finally proceeded to trial. Michael had discussed with me a technical defence in relation to drink driving cases and we decided to proceed on that basis.

To my utter delight, I was found not guilty of the charge.

Words cannot express my sincere gratitude for saving my licence and livelihood. For anybody out there looking for a specialist road traffic lawyer in I would urge you to contact Michael Lyon Solicitors. Having had the pleasure of seeing Michael in action, I can only say that I was, and remain to be, amazed by his level of expertise. The guy is, quite simply, The Road Traffic Lawyer in Scotland.”

We were delighted with the outcome of the case and wish to thank our client for his kind words and support.
