I am writing to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding legal representation provided by Gwyn Lewis, who defended me in a recent serious driving charge.
Having been let down from another firm Gwyn was recommended to me at the 11th hour. From the outset, Gwyn demonstrated a high level of professionalism, legal expertise, and dedication to my case. Their meticulous attention to detail and thorough understanding of the intricacies of the law significantly contributed to the positive outcome of my case.
Throughout the legal process, Gwyn exhibited excellent communication skills, keeping me well-informed and providing clear explanations of the legal proceedings in both Magistrates and Crown Court.
In addition to their legal prowess, Gwyn exhibited empathy and understanding, making what could have been a stressful experience more manageable. He was approachable, responsive to my concerns, and always took the time to address any questions I had.
I firmly believe that the favourable resolution of my case would not have been possible without Gwyn’s expertise and tireless advocacy on my behalf. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking a highly skilled and reliable legal representative.

Gwyn Lewis was professional and approachable. You are usually going through a difficult time if you need a defence lawyer so it is important that you they make you feel valued, explain everything honestly without jargon and reassure you wherever they can. Gwyn had the perfect balance of all the legal and personal skills required. A big Thankyou for a job very well done.

Dear Rob,

I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude for your exceptional professionalism and support during a difficult time. When my son, who was 17 at the time and carrying a knife, found himself in a challenging situation, your presence and guidance were invaluable.
Your calm demeanor and ability to navigate this sensitive issue, even as he turned 18 while waiting for police caution, reassured us greatly. Your dedication to ensuring his safety and well-being was evident throughout the process, and I cannot thank you enough for your assistance.
Your commitment to your profession and genuine concern for individuals in crisis make you a true asset. We are fortunate to have had you by our side during this ordeal. Thank you once again for your outstanding support.

Ms P – Manchester

Our Burton Copeland solicitor Suzanne Dooley was an excellent advocate. She was clear and insightful, keeping us abreast of proceedings and answering our questions as they arose. She was also compassionate and supportive at a difficult time, going the extra mile despite other demands on her time. We would definitely use her again.

Maria Barrett – Google Review

Matloob Ahmed is the best Solicitor I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand. He was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings & because of his excellence, we achieved the outcome we wanted 👍

If anyone is looking for an extremely knowledgeable Solicitor at a great price, then ask for Matloob! He is a credit to the firm.

Adil – Google Review

I have had an amazing experience with Burton & Copeland with special thanks to Matloob. He was extremely supportive, understanding & compassionate during my case, providing support even out of hours. Matt made a concerted effort to make sure I was at ease at all times & broke down every step of the case to me in a way that I could easily understand. He is an incredible solicitor & I would 100% recommend!

Jade Kan – Google Review

Matloob Ahmed was the Litigator that dealt with the case. I had such a positive experienced with him, he was always in communication with me and made me feel at ease. He is an extremely knowledgeable and professional in his dealings. The outcome of the case was the absolute best it could have been and after a long, stressful and scary 10 months I can finally put this horrible situation to bed and move forward. Thank you Matloob wishing you a happy and successful career at Burton Copeland. Best wishes

Mark Jones – Google Review

Great, Professional solicitors!!! They wanted to ban me for driving and Mr Lewis saved the day with no fine or penalty points. Highly recommended!!

Colside Ltd – Google Review

Thank you to Burton Copeland, specifically Gwyn Lewis with the help of Lisa. Having previously dealt with a different solicitor, who let me down in several ways leaving me in a really difficult spot, Gwyn was more than happy, and capable of saving the day. Gwyn was always there to answer any questions we had and dealt with everything throughout with a touch of class. I would absolutely recommend Gwyn and am so grateful for what Burton Copeland have done for me.

RM – Google Review

Had Matloob as my Solicitor for a case.

Gave me excellent advice when we met and kept me updated through the case which resulted in a No Further Action from the police.

Would recommend to anyone, no nonsense solicitor who tells you the possibilities the likely outcomes and keeps you grounded.

Representation from Mr Gwyn Lewis himself has been more than 5 stars, I could not express how grateful I was and still am for his support and dedicated hard work. I cannot recommend him enough! Thank you very much for everything!

Jessica McMullen – Google Review

I can only state how impressed I was with Burton Copeland, Celia Thorpe was the solicitor assigned to support me, she is knowledgeable and experienced in her field, her advice has always been exemplary, she goes the extra mile to support her clients. She looked at the possibilities of how she could support me rather than sticking to any limitations. I would highly recommend her and the company, and whilst I hope I don’t need her support again, if I do Celia and Burton Copeland would be my first port of call.

Carl Hallbrook – Google Review

I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude for the legal advice and emotional support provided by one of your solicitors, Celia Thorpe. Celia was incredibly helpful and refreshingly honest at every step of the process. Celia is extremely knowledgeable. Even when I had some doubts, Celia listened and gave me her opinion and advice. I really trusted her and knew that she had my best interests at heart. Her compassion, care, knowledge and professionalism are exemplary. I cannot thank her enough for her help with this matter.  I am hugely thankful and grateful for her legal assistance.

Ms L – Staffordshire

Service was excellent – Dan was brilliant with my son who is 14 and was fairly stressed and concerned by the position he found himself in.  Dan guided both my son and I through the process and gave us real confidence that the right result would be reached as well as keeping us updated. I would absolutely recommend Dan to others.

Mr N – Manchester

[Rob] thanks for your invaluable help and counsel over the years…you are the best solicitor I could have hoped. Never forget that. You are more amazing than I feel you give yourself credit for. Again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am forever in your debt for my freedom.

Mr F. Manchester

Mr Lewis came like an angel at my worst times. I’d 2 cases where Mr Lewis was helping me. 1st case was dropped at the initial stage (i wasn’t the driver). 2nd one was dismissed after the hearing. I’ll remember his help for a long time. Very professional. His words will put you at ease from the very first conversation you’ll have with him. His secretary Lisa is another person I will always admire. Very hard working, often working very late. They will reply to any queries you’ll have in timely manner. Mr Nick was another man at the firm, very helpful. Both Mr Lewis and Mr Nick both are true gentlemen. I’ll recommend them to all my colleagues at my taxi farm when they are in need. Mr Lewis, Don’t wanna be in a position where I’ll need you again, but if I do, I’ll sprint back to you without hesitation 😀. Again, A big THANKS from me for your help 🙏.

[Karl] I would like to start by thanking you so very much for your help and support in court. Not sure I would have managed without your support and guidance on the day. It was all new to me but with your help, support and guidance I think we managed an excellent result. Thank you very much Karl.

Mr H – Manchester

[Sam’s] Service was brilliant, I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.

Mr Howarth – Manchester

Gwyn Lewis was recommended to me to act for my son. His guidance, honesty & professional warm manner made a terrible situation for our family easier. Phone calls to Gwyn were always responded to even if just to say “I’m with a client, will call you back”, which always happened.
My thanks also to Lisa Nevitt for putting me at ease in the initial stages with her kindness, explanations and responding to my endless emails.
Big thank you to you all, now that we have reached an outcome I thought would never happen.

MB – Google review

Where does one start when you want to share your story about a company and a man who made a massive impact on your life. Well, it has to be the beginning of the story I guess.
Having been driving for nearly 40 years and not having any motoring offences blemishing my licence I made a very, very bad judgement call and committed quite a bad speeding offence and was set for prosecution by the courts, April 2021. Due to the seriousness of the offence I was facing a Ban to which means my job as a delivery driver, my sole income was at risk.
Distraught with the thought I scoured the internet looking for a law firm who could represent me to which I sent out emails to various companies.
The very next morning whilst at work I received a phone call in response to one of my emails from a firm called Burton-Copeland, based in Manchester. I did eventually get replies from all the other law firms but with Burton-Copeland it was instantaneous. On the other end of the phone was a calm and very resourceful man advising me of what to expect from my motoring offence.
From this very first phone call I was lucky enough to be talking to a solicitor called Mr Gwyn Lewis, who is a senior partner at Burton-Copeland.
Mr Lewis throughout my case was always there with advice and what was happening with my case and court date. Due to Mr Lewis and his expertise I am not only grateful but I feel very lucky to have had the pleasure of dealing with this man who literally saved my job and livelihood. This was a motoring offence but I noticed that Burton-Copeland handle many types of legal situations, so if you are in need of help they should be your first port of call. Professionalism from a company I found that I could trust.
Many, Many thanks Burton-Copeland and especially to Mr Gwyn Lewis – who got me a fantastic result in not receiving a ban.

I couldn’t recommend Burton Copeland more highly, particularly Mr Gwyn Lewis himself. The service he provided was both professional and personal! With his knowledge and meticulous attention to detail lead to a positive outcome for my case, which I couldn’t have done with out him! Can’t thank him enough, he came recommended and wow am I so grateful!

Sarah Taylor – Google review

Amazing, professional and great legal service provided from Burton Copeland in particular our solicitor Gwyn Lewis. Mr Lewis deserves all the praise- honest, friendly and worth every penny of his work. So much effort put into our case and every last detail is thought through.

Jim Murray – Google review

I would like to leave a review for my solicitor Gwyn Lewis, Mr Lewis was professional kind and compassionate through out my case and kept me informed of everything through out the whole ordeal. Mr Lewis really helped to put me at ease and was so thorough, his wealth of experience in motoring matters is most definitely apparent and I would recommend him to anybody. Mr Lewis found a legal loophole which prevented me receiving points on my license today. I was acquitted of all charges despite driving over the speed limit. I would recommend him to anybody that may require an experienced, well spoken and extremely knowledgeable solicitor. I cannot recommend him enough, so thankful he was my solicitor today.

Louise Straw of Burton Copeland was brilliant at preparing the case and offering tremendous support to the family. She was confident with great knowledge and insight to the harrowing experiences of defendants and their families. Support and compassion helped with the whole process.

Maureen Taylor – Google review

Louise Straw did a truly fantastic job for a friend of mine facing a very serious criminal charge. She was sympathetic and supportive and inspired confidence in her ability throughout. The icing on the cake was that he was acquitted. I would recommend her without hesitation.

William O’Brien – Google review

Excellent professional service offered. I felt completely assured and in very capable hands. Louise Straw was quite simply amazing – fully supportive with superb client care. I would wholeheartedly recommend her and this firm.

Melanie Walker – Google review

I would highly recommend Louise Straw at Burton Copeland for her reactivity and transparency. After a particular argument with a neighbour (ongoing issues), false allegations were made against me. The police turned up on a Friday when I wasn’t in. I therefore contacted a number of Law firms in Manchester for advice early on the Saturday morning. Louise called at 07.15am and provided me with a thorough legal understanding of the situation. As such no further action was taken against me.

Neill Donald – Google review

The solicitor Louise Straw and barrister Eddison Flint at Burton Copeland were both excellent in relation to my son’s case, going above and beyond for us. I can’t recommend them highly enough. You can have faith they will do their best for you and get the best possible outcome.

A late review but Jonathan and [Yvonne] were amazing for my partner and stuck by him for the last 4 years and defended him to the hilt as well as always keeping him updated at every stage and making us aware of the stages that were next and always being on the other end of the phone when ever he needed someone to talk to. Couldn’t recommend them enough they gave him his life back and amazing advice . Thank you !

I have dealt with Burton Copeland Since 2013. Google only lets you leave one review, because they are that good I am leaving them a second review for their outstanding performance, my recent case which was won. Nick Terry is a down for earth guy and just gets things sorted ASAP!! Great firm to deal with. You’ve found the best firm you are looking for here. Look no further !!

Usman Ali – Google review

I used the services of Nick Terry for a matter with the DVLA who were threatening to take me to court for something I had no knowledge of. Nick was able to put me at ease and explained my options. After a brief conversation Nick very quickly contacted both the courts and DVLA to explain my defence. The DVLA withdrew the case from the courts. Top service and professional staff.

Peter Keenan – Google review

I recently had a court date, a bit of an unfortunate situation. I read the reviews online regarding Burton & Copeland and they all seemed very positive. The minute I picked up the phone and spoke to my first line of contact I was very impressed. I felt even more confident and their costs are incredibly reasonable. I was feeling even more confident, however I was blown away from the level of service I received From Liz R, one of the partners. She was on time, well organized and well spoken in court. She was always available and confident during the proceedings. She achieved the best possible outcome whilst looking out for my best interests. We actually ended up receiving an incredible outcome which normally doesn’t happen.
I would recommend this firm to anyone who needs proper representation. There is no smoke and mirrors, only professionalism.

Chris Bula – Google review

I want to say a big thank you to Yvonne Garside of burton Copeland after everything she did to help me and guide me through my trial. This solicitor is one in a million. If anyone seriously needs help you would be silly not to ask for Yvonne Garside to help prepare and do your case no stone is left unturned after a trial at crown court I was aquitted and I had dealt with another team of solicitors first so trust someone that had used another firm of solicitors and not had the right treatment one call with Yvonne and I am sure you will understand this women is a diamond…. thank you once again Yvonne Garside of Burton Copeland solictors..

What can I say except a big thank you from all our family. Yvonne Garside and her team at Burton Copeland were exceptional and resulted in us having a 100% perfect verdict. I can’t recommend her enough! Nothing was too much trouble, she was always there for us, easy to talk to, knew her ‘stuff’ and the attention to detail was second to none. Yvonne helped us out in our time of need and felt like she was part of the family by the end of our journey. I highly recommend Yvonne and her hard working team. Thank you once again Yvonne.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone requiring legal representation. I was fortunate to have Mr Daniel weed as my solicitor and I found him to be friendly, patient, knowledgeable and professional at all times.
He always got back to me quickly , to keep me updated, answer any queries or simply to offer much needed reassurance during what has been a very frightening and stressful time in my life.
My case was won as the prosecution offered no evidence however Dan ensured that my defense was well prepared and left no stone unturned.
I also met with Nick Terry who was also very helpful, kind and professional.
They also employed the services of an excellent barrister Ciaran Rankin who very knowledgeable, friendly and reassuring . I felt in safe hands throughout.

I have recently required the services of Burton Copeland LLP. My solicitor assigned was Daniel Weed. He went above and beyond for us, even returned to court to represent us for a second time, free of charge, when the case date was changed on the day of the first hearing. Cannot recommend him enough.

Hunter Irwin Security Specialist – Google review

Following a breach of Health and Safety Regulations in 2011 EPL received a substantial fine which was due to be paid by December 2020. Following a hearing and review of the companies finances which took place at Crewe Magistrates Court, Burton Copeland Solicitor Dan Weed managed to secure a significant reduction in the fine and an extension to the payment terms of a further two years. The outcome of the hearing was way beyond our expectations for which we remain extremely grateful.

Mr & Mrs A, Monmouthshire

Massively happy with the help of my barrister getting the Court / Judge to understand my case. Thank you [Rachel Murphy] in helping reduce my sentence. Many many thanks, will use you for any future incidents, although I don’t intend to live the life of crime. Thank you.

Mr P, Manchester


As counsel it is so important to have a good working relationship with the fee earner in the case you are conducting because it is their responsibility to assist with building rapport with the lay client, take instructions, review the evidence and discuss it with you, take witness statements, draft other documents, instruct experts and so on. Rachel [Murphy]carries out all of the above to the highest standard. I am proud of our working relationship. My admiration for her work is simply because she is amongst the very best fee earners I have worked with. I can say with confidence, having worked with her for over a decade, that she leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that justice is done and is very knowledgeable when it comes to criminal law. I would have no reservations in recommending Rachel. I believe her to be a diligent, wise and capable legal professional. In short, she is a pleasure to work with.

Counsel H


I couldn’t ask for a better service. I really can’t think of anything to express the total respect I have for everyone that helped me.

PK – Manchester


I wish to thank you greatly for the well-informed help you gave me with regard to my recent Fire Arms Revocation Order. It is easy to take for granted the many benefits of NRA membership but I had never imagined that after being a member for a decade that the provision of legal assistance would be useful. It was a surprise to me when the Thames Valley Police (TVP) ordered the revocation of my License especially as it arose from a nearly three decade old financial dispute in another country, no less. You were my first point of contact and explained both the law and made useful suggestions on how to argue the case.

Through my NRA insurance I was able to make a claim to LIM and was put in contact with the knowledgeable solicitor Mr. Tim Andrew of Burton Copeland of Manchester. Presenting TVP with the facts, Mr. Andrew made a persuasive case that the reasons in law for revocation should not apply to my circumstances. The Fire Arms Officer accepted his argument and my License will now be reinstated. The ownership of Fire Arms in the United Kingdom is a privilege and not a right. But ensuring that the law operates fairly however often requires resources.

National Rifle Association Member


I was highly impressed with the way in which my case was handled by Jonathan from my initial instruction to its conclusion, Both my partner and I were treated with the utmost courtesy and no query was too small nor too great for Jonathan and the team. He went above and beyond to help me. Jonathan explained the whole legal process in relation to my case in a clear and comprehensible manner. He also treated me with respect and total honesty ensuring that I fully understood the available options open to me and their possible outcomes. With his guidance and support, I was able to face up to and make some difficult decisions…I would not hesitate in recommending Jonathan and Burton Copeland.

Mr C – Manchester


“Bryan and Jonathon both had involvement in my case. They completely understood my situation and were in constant contact with me. My case went all the way to court (surprisingly) and I was found not guilty. I cannot thank them enough as they saved my career. Cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“My wife and I used Burton Copeland solicitors a few months ago. We had the pleasure of Gwyn Lewis and Jonathan Wall. Both exceptional men who know the in’s and out of the job. We were blown away at court with the result, due to the exceptional knowledge of Mr McMahon who again was outstanding. I cannot thank you enough. My wife was quite low with the work situation and then the court appearance but after this she has a new lease of life and I do not really think you understand the impact your kindness, honest approach and availability to put her mind at rest has had on her life. Thank you and best wishes for the future. I will of course not hesitate in forwarding your details to any needy colleague!”

Having asked several members of the legal profession for a recommendation the name that came forward each time was that of Damian Wall. His preparation throughout was meticulous and he left no stone unturned and his tactical nous caught the prosecution off guard. Damian’s perseverance and his approach to the trial strategy along with that of my counsel Brendan Kelly QC was superb and at the verdict Damian’s reaction said it all, he cared.

Outcome – not guilty.

Testimonial R v A


I would like to thank you for all your help in my case. Your genuine interest in securing an acquittal in my case was of immense comfort to me. I will be forever grateful for the support you showed me.

R v E – Credit Card Fraud – Testimonial


Having completed a customer satisfaction survey, I feel I need to write a letter to express my gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work carried out by Erin during the case. Her commitment and drive to put the case together was exemplary and over the two and a half years of constant reading, discussion and guiding me through the legal process, I could not give any negative comments towards her work ethics. To add to this my QC, Nick Clarke commenting upon receiving his case transcript from Erin, that it was the best he had ever received, which is testament to Erin’s work and dedication. Her communication skills and in fact, her personality, in my opinion, puts her ahead of all other solicitors I have met and is a credit to Burton Copeland. If I am ever asked to recommend a solicitor, I would have no hesitation in recommending Erin.

R v S Testimonial


Big thank you to Erin Cowley for all of her hard work on my partners case which had the best turn out we could of had! Erin was always willing to work outside of her office hours for us and would never fail to make my partner feel like he was in the best hands as he really was, I just really can’t thank Erin enough for everything, I will always remember what she had done for us and I will continue to praise her to my friends and family and most of all I highly recommend Erin!

If ever I even needed a little reassurance I could call Erin and she would 100% make me feel better about any worries I had at the time, I have never worked with somebody so professional and so honest yet so friendly at the same time, I will never forget this case because it was a horrendous time for me and my partner but mostly i’ll never forget how much worse it may have been if we had anybody else representing us.

Thanks You so much from the bottom of my heart once again!!

I had to write because it is very rare in these times to be able to say thank you and mean it. Unfortunately my son found himself in trouble and…we instructed one of your solicitors to represent him.

The case was then handed to Suzanne Dooley. I can’t praise her enough! Her standard of professionalism, understanding and support were second to none. She made herself available to me day and night and kept me informed throughout the whole process. She worked tirelessly until the outcome we expected was achieved…..

This has been a very trying time for me and when difficult times present themselves, to have the opportunity to be represented by people who treated the case as if it was one of there own family members was heart warming and gave me the strength to get through all of this.

I thought in this horrible world we lives and the fact that I know you deal with difficult issues on a daily basis that it was appropriate to send this letter to you so that you could see that the work you and your colleagues do really does make a difference to people’s lives. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Mrs S – Assault matter


I was charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and sent for trial to Manchester crown court. I chose Burtoncopeland solicitors to represent me on recommendation and their firm’s profile. I selected Yvonne to represent me. Yvonne was my light during a dark period of my life. She gave me hope, strength and laughter making the whole court ordeal a much easier journey. Being a professional and being unfairly charged for perverting the court of justice came as a huge shock to myself and took up a year and a half of my life, emotions and thoughts. Yvonne thankfully was my star who enriched me with her bright vibes and positive spirits and helped me in the most wonderful and genuine of ways. She became not just my solicitor but a dear friend. Yvonne aided me all the way and supported me during the roller coaster process. Thankfully, all charges had been dropped. All thanks to Yvonne and her wonderful work. Thank you Yvonne for keeping my spirits high during a low period. I would recommend Yvonne to everyone for her energy, her compassion, her sincerity and profound knowledge in her field. Her attitude to her work is phenomenal. Her empathy is outstanding. I for one am eternally grateful to Yvonne for going above and beyond for me and my family and would highly recommend her.

“Hi Nick, This is just to say a massive massive thank you to you, Julian and Hannah for all you have done for me. Brain injury is a subject even the professionals are unsure about, so for you to believe in me and work so hard on my case and do all you have done for me, even I am lost for words. You may have only been ‘doing your jobs’ but for me it’s a life changer. A million thank you’s and then some. Also a special mention to Hannah who I have only just met, but she was fab on the day. Lovely woman. Right I’ll say goodbye. (I’ll miss this!) Massive fond regards Davena”
