We regularly receive testimonials from both our clients and legal peers, and these comments encourage us that we must strive to maintain and improve upon the high standards that we set for ourselves as defence lawyers.
Professor Peter Lyons of CPD Training is a qualified Barrister and Academic who regularly trains the world’s largest Law Firms around the world in advocacy and court skills.
Here’s what he had to say about Charles Ferguson and his Legal Team after an intensive training session:
We train advocates in a variety of disciplines in many countries around the world. Our courses are intense and challenging but well-regarded.
The fact that Charles Ferguson requested advocacy training for himself and his team speaks loudly. Charles is an immensely experienced and skilful courtroom lawyer yet he recognises that regular training will keep an advocate in top form.
In addition, Charles invests in his team. Fraser McKinnon and Jackson Bateman were very bright, on top of the facts and the law and quick to learn and practice new skills.
In the end, this can only be good news for Charles Ferguson’s clients.

Below are a few testimonials from our clients who were successfully represented in court by Charles Ferguson Solicitors.
I have had the pleasure of using Charles Ferguson and Jackson Bateman’s services and they went over and above their remit for me as my defence lawyers. I can honestly say that this criminal law firm is the best in the Lanarkshire area. I would trust them with any court proceedings that I would ever have in the future (sorry Charles Ferguson but I do hope I do not have to see you in a professional capacity ever again touch wood). The office staff are on the ball in all matters and will always deal you in a respectful manner and make sure that you are kept up to date with everything. I would recommend Charles Ferguson highly and cannot thank him and his staff enough.
– Mr. J, Hamilton, Serious Assault
Good Afternoon Jackson,
I just wanted to touch base with you and thank you for all your work and support throughout my case.
You were extremely professional with a calming manner about you at all times which helped me throughout. As advised I am in court on a regular basis because of work and must say I was extremely impressed with how you conducted yourself in the court room. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my case and thank you for this. If anything like my job you always hear about the negatives but never the positives and feel that you are a credit to Charles Ferguson and they are lucky to have you.
I wish you well with your future career. Thanks again.

Excellent work, I was absolutely delighted by the way the whole court case was conducted and presented.
– Dangerous Driving, Sheriff Court.
Unlike my previous lawyer, Charles sat down with me and went through every aspect of the evidence. When I went to court I knew exactly what was going to happen.
– Serious Assault, Sheriff Court.
Thank you very much, I was absolutely terrified of going to court. After having spent the weekend in custody I did not wish my wife to be upset an further by this matter and I wanted the case to be dealt with speedily. Charles got the matter brought forward and I plead guilty. When things were explained to the court the sheriff deferred sentence and thereafter admonished me. I can’t praise Charles highly enough for guiding me through one of the most horrible experiences of my life.
– Domestic Assault, Sheriff Court.
….just wanted to say thanks again for today you done a great job and am very confident that if I hadn’t made the choice to change over to you guys then the case would have ended a lot differently today. thanks again from me and my family its sincerely and greatly appreciated.
