Mark (Review from: Judge Your Lawyer)

Went the extra mile every step of the way. Thanks Emma.

Leanne (Review from: Facebook)

If you happen to get yourself into some trouble then this is the place to come. In most cases you probably didn't even do it. ... Its your legal right to say no comment and up to your lawyer to do the rest. Don't bother saying a thing. They cops don't believe you anyway... Good luck with your legal issues...
