We have been most grateful for your instant and exceptional help over a speeding fine problem recently.
We were unaware of the date of the court hearing and consequently given a large fine in our absence, which arrived out of the blue by post and was extremely distressing.
Your sympathetic and comprehensive advice was so much appreciated at such a difficult time, and as a result we were able to arrange a Statutory Declaration at the local Magistrates Court to set aside the original case and re-apply for a new date for the hearing on 18 January.
Although we decided at the last minute to change the not-guilty plea to a ‘guilty plea with mitigating circumstances’ we were grateful to receive the standard fine of £120 and the prosecutor generously agreed to waive his fees of £85 to keep our costs down.
The downside of course is the 3 penalty points, but at least we have been saved any more hassle and uncertainty of costs.
