Testimonials

The first thing I was impressed with was how easy it was to call and speak to him about the two tickets. He never, ever made me feel rushed and listened to what I had to say and completely understood. Then he went to court for me and got no points, just the fine, which I expected. It was a huge relief, not living close by the court, to simply hand everything over to him and not give it another thought. He emailed me immediately upon the resolution of the case. I would highly recommend him.
Would definitely use him again (although I hope I don't have to!)
