Motoring Solicitors: What Our Clients Say

  1. Professional, Calm and Very Reassuring

    I am a director of several companies and rely heavily on my driving licence. I was stopped by the police on the M6 for speeding at over 100mph. I was faced with the prospect of a lengthy driving disqualification, which was of great concern to me. JMW came highly recommended and did not disappoint. I was unable to attend court as I had an urgent meeting in Gloucestershire and my case was being heard in Carlisle! My solicitor managed to deal with the hearing in my absence and convinced the court not to disqualify me and instead give me points.

  2. 'I would highly recommend Damien Simmonds'

  4. Damien Simmonds saved my career

    Damien Simmonds saved my career

    Damien Simmonds saved my career by successfully managing to help me avoid a driving ban after totting up speeding points. I am a sales rep and am dependent on my car for work. Obtaining a ban would have resulted in me losing my job. His knowledge of the court system and processes along with his advice was exemplary. Damien also empathised with my costs as he managed to move the court hearing from South Wales to further North which is closer to home. This saved cost and time. I would not hesitate to recommend Damien Simmonds to others for his expertise knowledge on motoring and driving offences.

  5. I would not hesitate to recommend JMW should anyone need help dealing with a motoring offence.

    I was contacted by the Police after they had conducted checks on the car being driven by my son and discovered that the MOT and the tax on the car had lapsed. They told me that as the car was registered in my name, I was responsible and therefore I would receive 6 points on my licence; 3 points for each offence.

    I was very concerned as I am a builder and my job involves a lot of driving. I did not want to drive around with points on my licence and have the risk of a driving ban hanging over me. I immediately contacted JMW after they were recommended by a friend. I am glad that I did! My solicitor immediately put my mind at ease by reviewing the police paper work and confirming that they had made a mistake as I had only been charged with allowing someone to use a car without an MOT. He told me that I would not get any points and that he was certain that he could help me avoid a conviction altogether. I own a small fleet of vehicles and therefore was concerned that a conviction of any kind would have a huge impact on my insurance premium. JMW managed to convince the prosecution to drop the charge and also obtained an order from the court so that I can recover my legal costs. I would not hesitate to recommend JMW should anyone need help dealing with a motoring offence.
  6. Thank you Peter!

    Thank you Peter!

    Thank you so much for your help and support over the last couple of weeks. The result you achieved for me was much better than we expected and now my wife and I can move on with our lives and do everything that we had planned to do before this happened.

    I can not recommend Peter high enough. His performance in court was truly outstanding, he managed to make me feel at ease during an incredibly stressful time, while negotiating with the prosecutor throughout the session to achieve a much better result than we expected. He completely owned the court room during the hearing, and obviously won the respect of the judge, which I believe was absolutely crucial to the positive outcome we achieved.Now I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. A different result would have been hugely life changing. I would have lost my job, my house, everything. But now we can move on. Thank you Peter!

  7. I was stopped by the Police after I was caught driving whilst using my mobile phone.

    They ran some checks on my car and it transpired that the MOT had lapsed. The Police informed me that as I had no MOT, my insurance was invalid. I was therefore faced with the prospect of receiving 6-8 penalty points on my licence for having no insurance as well as separate penalties for using my mobile phone and having no MOT.

    I was very concerned as I have held my licence for less than two years and therefore 6 points would have resulted in my licence being revoked. JMW was highly recommended and therefore I decided to instruct them. When I first met my solicitor he put me at ease by telling me that he would save my licence. He was positive throughout my case and regularly kept me up to date on all of the developments. My case went to court three times, yet I did not have to attend once as JMW took care of the hearings in my absence. JMW managed to convince the prosecution to drop the no insurance charge and convinced the court to limit the penalty to 3 points and a small fine for the mobile phone offence. He also managed to convince the court not to impose a penalty for the MOT offence. Thanks to JMW I do not have to re - sit my driving test, which is a huge relief!
  8. Your service is excellent. Thank you.

    Keep up the good work and thank you for your help. I will do my best not to get into any more trouble. I don't know if that's what you wanted to hear or not! I don't think you can do any more than you are already doing.

  9. Such a comfort to be looked after so well!

    I was very contented with the company. Such a comfort to be looked after so well!

  10. I contacted JMW Solicitors for assistance and I am so glad.

    I was horrified to open my mail to find a Fixed Penalty Notice for speeding. I didn't think I was going too fast but must have been, as for a moment I thought the notice was addressed to "Dear Lewis Hamilton"!

    I contacted JMW Solicitors for assistance and I am so glad I did as thanks to his contacts and ability to negotiate I am now on a Speed Awareness Course which means no points will go on to my licence. If you need help with traffic offences I thoroughly recommend JMW. Thanks again for all your help.
  11. Damien is a fantastic lawyer, genuinely caring and knowledgable.

    Damien is a fantastic lawyer, genuinely caring and knowledgable.

    In June 2012 I was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, after a low speed collision involving a police car. I failed to provide a specimen of breath, and subsequently had a court hearing to answer these charges the following month.

    I subsequently struggled to secure any work post conviction which put a major strain on my personal and financial life. Just under two years into my conviction I contacted JMW regarding an appeal, and was given Damian Simmonds as my representative. On the day of my appeal hearing I was not at all hopeful due to the fact I hit a police car, something in which the prosecution touched on a few times to say the least. Damien however held his ground very confidently delivering reasons as to why this situation arose, how my conduct has changed post conviction and my inability to secure work. Whilst the bench retired to discuss there decision he even sat and comforted my wife who was struggling emotionally! Thanks to Damien's confidence, and extensive legal knowledge within this area the bench returned and lifted my ban with immediate effect. I was now able to drive again two years early. I actually ended up serving 1 year less than the minimum sentence for a second offence

  12. Just a note to say thank you for all of your help with my recent driving case.
