I found myself in a very difficult situation recently which left me in need of a solicitor. Morton’s Solicitors, Simon Morton specifically was recommended to me and with some anxiousness I contacted him.

From the first conversation and throughout the legal process I found Simon and his team to be supportive, thoughtful and professionally brilliant!

He managed my concerns in addition to handling the case with a calm and clear manner, being responsive to questions and guiding me throughout the experience.

I have no reservation in recommending him, particularly if, like me, you have no experience of legal proceedings and need a reassuring yet expert legal representative to see things through- successfully!

Drink and Drug Driving – Independent Sample Testing

In some cases, the police need to take either a blood or urine sample from a driver suspected of driving under the influence of drink or drugs.

So why do so few suspects take this option up?
