Michael Lyon Solicitors Limited is a team of highly specialised and experienced road traffic lawyers representing clients charged with motoring offences throughout Scotland. We hold a unique position in the market place due to our outstanding track record for successfully defending road traffic cases over the last decade. We restricted our practice solely to the defence of road traffic prosecutions in 2007 and have not looked back since. Our head office is in the High Street in Glasgow and our second office opened in Dumfries, directly across from Dumfries Justice of the Peace and Sheriff Court, back in 2011 to deal with the high number of speeding prosecutions emanating from the M74.
Over the years we have represented a broad range of clients from Police Officers to politicians and provided expert legal assistance in relation to tens of thousands of road traffic cases in Scotland. Aside from regularly appearing in the Scottish media on matters of road traffic law over the last decade, Michael Lyon is also the accredited Consultant on the Road Traffic Offences and Disqualification section of The Stair Memorial Encyclopaedia, considered to be an essential text for Solicitors practising road traffic law in Scotland.
If you are facing prosecution for any road traffic offence in Scotland, from dangerous driving down to a simple speeding charge, contact us today for expert legal representation. We can resolve many cases over the telephone free of charge.

The more detail, the greater the accuracy of our sentencing prediction:
In short I was charged with driving at 62mph whilst in a 30mph zone. The effect of this would have probably resulted in a ban as it was over double the limit, however you managed to present such a case to the fiscal that she agreed to drop the prosectuion without me even having to stand trial on the day.
I would like to thank you for your professional and responsive attention to the case that is now at a successful end. I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm, you took the stress off myself and handled the whole thing.
I was facing a ban for driving at 100mph on the motorway.
I was facing a 6 month ban due to totting up, instead received a 28 day ban.
I would strongly recommend anyone under similar circumstances to enlist the services of Michael Lyon, the Road Traffic Lawyer.
I was charged with Dangerous Driving following the performance of an overtaking manoeuvre and was caught out by the layout of the road which approached a hidden dip on a bend witnessed by two police officers.
