“Sometimes we all make silly mistakes, and need to seek professional help to get us out of a hole. I totted up too many driving points, and faced a nigh on impossible challenge of six months without a driving licence. By turning to Edmondson Hall I was guided through the Court process, grilled in order to identify any genuine undue hardship argument that could be used, and given huge personal support on the day – for which I am as appreciative of as the result that was secured by the calm, professional, well-structured representation that I would never have been able to devise or present for myself.”
“With grateful thanks for all your assistance in this matter. I would not hesitate to use your firm again.”
