6th March 2019 Bromley Magistrates' Court

(Drink driving case won at trial)

I wanted to express my gratitude to the team at M.A.J Law for their expert advice and representation. I was charged with drink driving and asked to attend court. I searched online and found M.A.J Law. Their solicitors all seemed well informed and professional. Unlike other firms I spoke to, they didn’t give it the hard sell and explained all my options.
