Craig 5/5
I would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone who is looking for an experienced, confident solicitor who can give you piece of mind that your case is in good hands. My solicitor was Ronnie Simpson and I was very impressed by his ability when we attended court: he was incredibly thorough with his argument and he picked up on every relevant detail, no matter how minor, that helped my case result in a desertion; he had effectively won the case within minutes of speaking. The price was reasonable and represents great value for money, especially considering the expertise you will have on your side. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Adam Harris 5/5
Due to the totting up procedure I was looking at 12 points and a 6 month ban. Michael Lyon solicitors were professional and easy to work with throughout and of course I got away with only a £100 fine and kept my license. A massive thank you to Michael and I highly recommend their services!
Connor Jamieson 5/5
Got caught by a speed camera doing 51mph in Springholm (30mph zone)Dumfries which could result in a ban. I contacted a different lawyer in Galsgow who told me I may loose my license and made me feel terrified. I was recommended Michael Lyon by a family friend as soon as I spoke to Michael I was at ease he told me there was nothing to worry about he would deal with it all and I wouldn't loose my license. After 1 month of panicking and lack of sleep today I got 4 points and a £150 fine which Michael promised me at the start. I cannot thank this man enough he was very professional from the start and respected in court. If you are looking for a reliable guy who can put you at ease and get the best possible outcome i wouldn't hesitate in recommending Michael Lyon. Once again thank you

I was caught speeding down the M74 at 101mph, which would impose a maximum driving ban of 56 days, a maximum fine of £2,500 and a minimum of 6 points. As i need my licence for my job i was terrified of losing my licence. I was refered to Michael Lyon Solicitors via a family friend. I was contacted by Ronnie Simpson who was really helpful over the phone. With his wealth of knowlage i was happy to appoint him to defend my case. Ronnie advised me i would not have to attend court as I live over three house away. Ronnie contacted me on the day of my hearing with delightful news. I was able to keep my licence with 5 points and a £300 fine. I could not recommend Michael Lyon Solicitors enough. Many Thanks
