This case went all the way to trial but on the morning of trial the CPS were persuaded to withdraw the fairly serious Drink Driving charge (and also a related Fail to Stop charge) after BB Law point out that the officer had made a procedural error and perhaps more importantly the officer had made inconsistent statements in relation to the issue. The client pleaded guilty to a related Fail to Report offence and walked away with 5 points on his licence, a small fine and a significant proportion of his legal costs refunded. These are his comments on the service BB Law provided to him –
“After facing a difficult case, I can honestly say that I have no regrets about selecting Bobby as my solicitor. Throughout the build up to both appearances at court he was not only there to support me, but his in-depth knowledge of driving laws gave me full confidence to put all of my trust into his decisions. With 3 charges, including an Excess Alcohol charge, he managed to convince the CPS along with some evidence to drop the Excess Alcohol and Fail to Stop in return for a guilty plea to my Fail to Report charge.
I would highly recommend Bobby for any motoring case, because he was such a help and with his fair prices it makes his service worthwhile as his desire and dedication to succeed in the court is second to none.” – Mr J, M – Staffordshire
“Dear Bobby. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your advice and assistance in regard to my case this morning. Excellent service, most appreciated, with a better than expected outcome. Kind regards” – Ms C, H – London
This was an unusual case and an exceptional result. The outcome shows that despite the rigid sentencing guidelines that magistrates are told to apply, magistrates are willing to consider the overall justice of the situation and use their discretion to sentence outside the guidelines in an appropriate case.
“Bobby. My family and I have been very impressed and pleased with the service we received as well as the final outcome. I would definitely recommend the service to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. I felt much more comfortable thanks to the advice received, and it made me a lot more confident that I was doing everything I could to get the best result possible. It helped me understand everything that was going on, so that there were no nasty surprises that I wasn’t aware of. My experience has inspired me to look at law as a very possible path I would like to take. I am very pleased with the result of my case, and thank you very much for all that you have done. Best regards” – T – Cheshire
“From the first email, Mr Bell was fully understanding and reassuring. I did not have a clue about law but I believed that having received an 18 month ban and £375 fine in the magistrates court (when represented by the court’s duty solicitor) was a bit harsh. Bobby was honest from the onset about my chances in the crown court. After discussing the best and worse outcome of an appeal, I decided to instruct Mr Bell to act on my behalf. Not being in a particularly strong financial position Mr Bell was very accommodating regarding a payment strategy which was honoured to the full. An approachable solicitor, Mr Bell always gave me the impression he wanted to achieve a positive outcome to my appeal and I strongly got the impression he was a solicitor with exacting standards and the professional desire to succeed for his clients. I would highly recommend Mr Bell to any potential client requiring legal representation in a motoring matter, and would certainly use him again, should I have the unfortunate reason to do so! I thank him for making this stressful experience considerably more bearable, and achieving a positive outcome to my appeal. Thank you very much.” – Miss N, F – Codsall, West Midlands
