Testimonials: –

“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 licences. 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 either devise or present myself.”
