"I had accumulated 12 points on my licence and was facing a six month driving ban, under the "totting up" rule. I contacted Stephensons and was informed that I had a fairly strong case to make a plea for "exceptional hardship" at court, to avoid a diving ban. They took my statement and appointed a Barrister to represent me in court. Prior to the court hearing I discussed my statement in detail with the barrister and felt confident that my case was being presented in the best possible light. I am very happy to be able to say that my exceptional hardship plea was upheld by the magistrates and I avoided a driving ban. I am extremely grateful to Stephensons for their legal advice and expertise and would highly recommend them to anyone having to appear in court regarding a driving offence" - View from a satisfied client.

"I cant even express how grateful I am to Stephensons for their help on my case. Even though we started our work a week before the actual hearing everything was done properly. Cameron who was dealing with my case from the beginning showed a lot of empathy and support. The outcome was much better than we expected and thats thanks to their great work and fantastic representation of barrister Mr Barr. I would strongly recommend Stephensons to anyone. Totally worth the money!" - View from a satisfied client.
