What Our Clients Say
Thank you so much for your speedy response in the late hours.
Thank you so much for your speedy response in the late hours. I thought I was going to receive a criminal conviction. Although they were minor offences, I could do without the headache of having to declare them when I’m travelling to the US, Mortgage applications, loans etc. You were able to have the matter resolve swiftly which resulted in the case being dealt with out of court, with no conviction and not having to travel all the way to Lancaster.
Mr. C Manchester, Excess Speed
I thank you for all your expertise on my case Hojol. Initially I thought I could do this myself but, I soon realised that I would need someone with the right expertise. I therefore contacted my colleagues within the finance and insurance industry and Hojol's name cropped up a few times. I therefore gave him a call, and although my case had limited notice for him (my fault) he was able to adjourn the matter and ensure it was listed on a date I was in a position to attend. Once the case came before the Court, I was so nervous as my licence was my life. He fought for me in Court under intense examination by the Justices and the Prosecution and thankfully I kept my licence. I can now continue to work and support my family. Thanks Hojol.
Mrs. C Oxfordshire, Excess Speed
I cannot thank Hojol enough, and I am so glad that I was referred his details. I thought that I would lose my licence due to the speed I was travelling along with the number of penalty points on my licence. He prepared the case thoroughly and when the matter went before the Court, everyone who was in the Court prior to me was disqualified from driving. I thought that I was going to lose it. Hojol supported me throughout this whole traumatic experience from the initial phone call to the date in Court. I have a large family and run a business and the loss of my licence would have had devastating consequences. Thank you again Hojol, you were exceptional.

Ms CT Warwickshire, Dangerous Driving and Drink Driving
Hojol was an attentive professional both sensitive to our situation yet honest. He did as he said he would, in a timely fashion and always made us feel safely represented and well informed. Hojol put himself out to meet with us, although we were geographically outside of his working location. I would strongly recommend Hojol and wish him every success, which I am confident he will achieve as he is driven, positive, professional and personable.
