Mortons are awesome!
I was remanded to custody for an offence that I hadn't done. I was stupid to not request a solicitor at the police station. I regretted that decision later.

My family have used Mortons before and told me to ask for them at Court. Mortons took on my case. Immediately I felt better as they explained what the evidence was, the procedure and what was going to happen.

I got bail thanks to Mark Shepherd at Mortons. The magistrates wanted conditions which were a bit ridiculous, he argued against the stupid ones and convinced them to bail me.

The police have raided my address on half a dozen occasions for non-existent stolen goods and other false allegations. The first couple of times I knew I hadn't done anything wrong, but the attitude of the police was such that on the last couple of occasions I asked for Morton's on the recommendation of a neighbour.
Simon Morton attended for me at the Police Station. He rightly gave the police a
good rollicking. I was bailed after the interview. Simon chased the matter up before I was due to return to the police station, and no further action was taken so I didn't have to attend.

I am thankful for his knowledge. His experience in dealing with these officers was very useful.
Knowledgeable, Reputable
Not sure what will stop the police raiding my address
Value for Money — It was FREE. Can't get any better
Service & Support — Understanding & Supportive
Quality — Very knowledgeable
Location — Came immediately to represent me

Failure to provide a breath sample
I was driving along minding my own business when I got stopped by police and after an argument with the officer about my severe asthma he arrested me and took me to the police station. I asked to speak to my Solicitor immediately at the police station because I felt I was being manhandled but they wouldn't let me until I had blown on the box. The police asked me to blow into the machine and I tried and tried but couldn't give any more breath. The officer warned me and when I failed again they charged me with failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis.

I instructed Simon Morton because I knew he had a excellent reputation for dealing with these types of cases. We had a good meeting and I was re-assured that we had good grounds to fight this in court.

Simon instructed an expert who confirmed at the time I was stopped I could not have given that breath due to my health and as a result of both their hard work we won at Court. So relieved.
Legal Aid & we won!
Having to go to court, but ce la vie!
Value for Money — Legal aid so was free
Service & Support — Always rang me back
Quality — Simon is a brilliant lawyer
Location — Parking not brilliant, but nowhere is in Stockport

Good Lawyer
Having been accused of an offence by my ex- I was recommended Mortons by a friend. I found Steven McHugh to be very helpful and really good on his feet.

The ladies in the office were also good. Sorry I can't remember there names.

My firm specialise in Criminal Defence and Motoring Law.

Many of my clients are professionals just like you, doctors/nurses, business people, professional drivers etc.

You may have been drinking & socialising and had to lawfully act in self-defence to defend themselves and are now accused of assault.

You may have been drinking the previous night, but not realised the following morning that you may still be over the limit and are now accused of drink driving.

In these and many more examples my firm & I may be able to help.
