  • I found out about Jonathan Paul through doing a web search.  I approached him to represent me in my upcoming case.  Jonathan appeared for me from start to finish and kept me informed of all the proceedings.  Through Jonathan's hard work and determination he got me a very positive outcome and I kept my licence.  I would not hesitate in recommending JP to anyone

  • "I ended up in a tricky situation where I had an accident and the Police charged me with careless driving. I enlisted the help of Driver Defender who took the pressure off my shoulders and dealt with the situation swiftly, resulting in the case against me being dropped completely. I will be forever grateful for the professional assistance I received from Jonathan and everyone at the Driver Defender team."

    Alex, Edinburgh Glasgow Justice of the Peace Court

  • "I would like to thank Jonathan Paul and the team at Driver Defender for representing my daughter in a very professional and confident manner. We were all up to hi-do when she was charged with careless driving but Jonathan and his team explained everything and secured my daughter a not guilty verdict after trial which provided so much relief for all of us! I cannot thank them enough. I would highly recommend Jonathan Paul and his team."
