War­ren Berg­son uses the law to keep celebri­ties driv­ing

The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

MANCH­ESTER LAWYER Nick Free­man, aka “Mr Loophole”— known for help­ing celebrity clients es­cape driv­ing con­vic­tions — is not the only cru­sad­ing so­lic­i­tor around. War­ren Berg­son, who lives in Broughton Park and calls him­self “the mo­torist’s friend”, is carv­ing out a suc­cess­ful niche of his own. A spe­cial­ist in traf­fic law, Mr Berg­son — who does not hold a driv­ing li­cence — re­cently got for­mer cham- pion jockey Kieren Fal­lon off a mo­tor­ing charge. The 55-year-old de­fended Mr Fal­lon from the ac­cu­sa­tion of speed­ing when a cam­era caught him trav­el­ling at 40mph in a 30mph zone in Cam­bridge in May last year.

“You have to delve into the case in minute de­tail in or­der to find those golden nuggets which will re­sult in ac­quit­tal — the ba­sis upon which Mr Free­man has built his rep­u­ta­tion,” Mr Berg­son tells Peo­ple.

Re­fer­ring to the Kieren Fal­lon case, he says: “I showed in court that the speed­ing-ticket records were un­re­li­able.”

A lawyer at Levy So­lic­i­tors, he has been spe­cial­is­ing in mo­tor­ing cases for three years. “Wealthy peo­ple have more money to de­fend, so if peo­ple need their li­cence, they will pay a fair amount to pre­serve that li­cence.” He is a mem­ber of the New Ka­hal Chas­sidim Syn­a­gogue, Sal­ford.
