PA to Mark Edmondson


“Mark Edmondson is a vastly experienced litigator and an expert in horse-racing regulations. Sources regard him as very knowledgeable and passionate about the sport. He is also an accredited mediator.”
Chambers UK
“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.”
“Of course a big thanks to Mark, many thanks for all of your help, really appreciate it.“
