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, CPD Training
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.

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.
J., Uddingston, Sheriff Court
Morning Jackson, I want to reiterate my sincere thanks and appreciation for your work and professionalism. I was expecting far worse yesterday, as a result I am more than happy with the outcome. Genuine thanks!
This case involved a professional person who was caught drink driving on the M74 motorway, at over 4 times the legal drink driving limit, Jackson secured an agreed narration, had the case brought forward and after making detailed submissions in court resulted in the client getting a got a small fine and a relatively short driving ban.
Mr. M., East Kilbride
Jackson thank you for helping me & my kids get the correct result today. You were involved for 1 month and done more for me than my previous lawyer did in 16 months. I cannot put into words what you have done for my family. Thank you for everything. – 2 charges of Assault and Breach of the Peace.
