"Imogen, I knew you'd have a tough job but it was tougher than I'd expected. And indeed, my friends, all experienced drivers themselves, didn't believe that I had a prayer of keeping my licence. Your address provoked the sort of questions you expected he would fire at me, and little was left for me to do. My main duty was just to field the stuff which you had warned me about. I was left marvelling at your skill in weaving the web and trying to see that I didn't mess up the chance you had created. I am greatly in your debt, and just so pleased that I had heard about your skills and got a chance to see them used in my defence." - Client Testimonial, October 2017.
