We were worried about the cost of it all, however the office staff sorted my legal aid application and so I didn't have to pay any money. The Criminal Lawyers did a great job on my case.

The way the Police dealt with me was shocking. The Police didn't want to listen to my side of the story and the fact that I was the one that was attacked. The Lawyers put my side of the story forward brilliantly and got me a not guilty.
