Our teenaged son was charged with driving with a blood alcohol level significantly above that of the legal maximum for driving. Knowing that he had done something very stupid he accepted his guilt and argued against the need for legal representation. He had researched the potential penalties on the internet and felt that he knew what to expect.
We, however, decided to appoint David who spent time talking us through the real implications of the charge and potential penalties as opposed to the scare stories of the internet, and prepared us for what would and could happen in court. He advised us well on the obtaining and preparation of references and on the day used his experience and knowledge of the law, the system and the court to minimise what could have been a serious charge with commensurate penalties. We are very grateful and whilst he was not cheap, he was worth every penny spent.
