The Road Traffic Lawyer Inverness

We are the original Road Traffic Lawyers in Scotland and have been serving drivers in Inverness for over a decade. We also have offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dumfries to serve motorists throughout Scotland.

Our new Inverness office is based in Sir Walter Scott Drive, Inverness. From this office we cover road traffic offences in Inverness, Fort William, Tain, Elgin, Wick, Portree, Kirkwall and Lerwick.

We are the only law firm based in Inverness to specialise exclusively in Road Traffic Law.

Our team consists of three highly-experienced road traffic lawyers (one of whom is a former Procurator Fiscal Depute). Details of the team can be found below.

Over the years have successfully defended all manner of road traffic offences including (for example): dangerous driving; careless driving; drink-driving; speeding; driving whilst using a mobile phone; driving without insurance. For further information on specific road traffic offences please click on the relevant box below.

The Track Record section provides a detailed summary of the types of cases in which we have been instructed. You can search by offence type and will likely encounter a case similar to your own that we have dealt with in the past.

Our initial advice is always free and, should our services be required, we offer a fixed-fee payment plan.

Road Traffic Offences


Gordon Findlay5/5
I approached Michael Lyon solicitors after my son was involved in an accident and was charged with careless driving. I wasn’t happy with the way my son had been dealt with and started to research the possibility of challenging the charge. I had heard of Michael Lyon and found them quickly online. The information on their website was helpful and it struck me how similar the circumstances were in some of the testimonials to what had happened to my son. I made contact with the firm and spoke to Martin Black. I was grateful for his knowledge and professional approach and how he was able to separate out the emotion and provide me with some straight forward facts surrounding making a challenge to the charge. On that basis, we decided to go ahead and have Martin represent us. On the day of the trial, Martin spoke to the Fiscal on my son’s behalf ahead of the proceedings and was able to persuade them to treat the case as not called meaning my son was found not guilty. We were absolutely delighted with the outcome and grateful for the work Martin did on our behalf and would recommend Martin and the firm to anyone who find themselves in similar circumstances.

I would highly recommend Michael Lyon Solicitors. They were excellent throughout dealings & court appearances and got me the result I was looking for. Many thanks.
Scott Broadley5/5
I was accused of careless driving by 2 police officers who were either lying or extremely incompetent and was advised to hire this firm to defend my case by friends ( ex traffic police officers) that rated them very highly. They were spot on as far as Ronnie Simpson inspires confidence and although the case was abandoned by the PF, at the 6th court diet, he had no doubts that we would win if the trial had gone ahead. I hope not to need Ronnie again but if necessary wouldn't hesitate to call him.
Nicola Malcolm5/5
Fantastic help when my partner was accused of driving with no insurance. Great experience, highly recommend!
Ed Berwick5/5
Superb service, I was charged with dangerous driving and facing a ban with a considerable fine. I got in touch with Michael Lyon and after a short phone call realized I had made the right choice. The charge was reduced to careless driving and I kept my licence. I highly recommend his excellent service.
kieran murphy5/5
Had a possible totting up ban facing me, so got in touch with TRTL and was quickly put at ease with discussion with Martin and Ronnie. Facing two speeding charges, they managed to have it reduced to one charge and £100 fine. Great work and lot of stress taken off my shoulders with the result. Highly recommend.
David Izen5/5
I couldn't be more impressed - received some very sound, practical and above all professional advice on the best way of dealing with a charge. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael Lyon Solicitors Limited going forward.
