Through our hard work and dedication to achieving great results, we at Forrest Williams are fortunate enough to receive plenty of positive feedback from our clients. Listed below are accounts from a few of our past customers, covering several motoring offences of varying severity. Some of them refer to our previous trading name of Motoring Lawyers Online.  WE DON’T DO FAKE TESTIMONIALS – The originals are all available on request.  

*********************************************

  “I’d just like to say a big thanks to Steve, Helen, Tracy, Lydia and the rest of the team, for all your help in gaining a great result of my motoring case, and a big thanks to Guy, who stopped at nothing on that Friday morning, I honestly wasn’t expecting that outcome, and I thought I’d be going home with a 6 month ban. But thanks to you all, I still have a clean driving licence! Many thanks again, and I hope you all have a good year.” – from Mr P, successful Exceptional Hardship application London Magistrates Court.  

*********************************************

  “I was extremely grateful for the clear and accurate advice you provided over the phone. For me the most important aspect of your advice was how to present myself and my partner at the police station and what to say. Had I not spoken to you prior to attending the Police Station I fear a totally different outcome would’ve been possible. I have retained you and your companies details and have recommended you to my friends. Thank you.” – Mr B, who was given advice that allowed him to avoid an intended prosecution becoming a charge against him  

*********************************************

  “Thank you and your team so so much, its unbelievable, I’ve got my life back and can finally start planning my summer. The prep work done by yourselves and Andy’s summing up in court was absolutely spot on and as I said to Andy yesterday I can’t recommend you highly enough.” – Mr G, found not guilty of drink driving at Appeal. Basingstoke Crown Court.  

*********************************************

  “You’ve been absolutely superb. Tracy was a tower of strength and was professional, reassuring and extremely competent. I have nothing but praise for this woman and the service she provided. Many many thanks.” – comments received by anonymous testimonial form  

*********************************************

  I called Motoring Lawyers Online when I found out I had to go to Court for driving without insurance. I explained my situation; that I had recently passed my test and sent my information and Court papers. They explained all the legal jargon to me in simple language, sorted out the paper work, went through my defence and explained what may be asked and how to answer. The case was dismissed, no points, no disqualification, no Court fees. An excellent, clear and efficient service. I would recommend them to family and friends. Mansfield Magistrates Court.  

*********************************************

  Steve was really helpful. I rang him when I first got the notice of intended prosecution. I was really worried because I had never dealt with this sort of thing before. Steve took the time to go through it in detail with me. Even though it was a free advice call he took his time to put me at ease. When it came to going to court Steve was brilliant. He took me through everything and then stood up for me in court. I was relieved to have him with me. Speeding Derby Magistrates Court.  

*********************************************

  After some considerable wait, we’ve had a response from the Police. They have considered P’s request regarding prosecution, and have decided to take no further action in respect of this matter. Your advice worked, and we’re very grateful that you took the time to give it. We shall definitely pass on your details to any friends or family that fall foul of traffic law. With sincere thanks.  

*********************************************

  Just wanted to say thank you very much for your hard work, I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.  

*********************************************

  It’s a wonderful service you offer, I will definitely recommend you to any clients we have who need motoring advice.  

*********************************************

  Further to my call earlier today, I wanted to take a moment to write something to you to say how grateful I am for the help, advice and support you have given me over the last 2 months. I was at my wits end when we first spoke having received a NIP stating that a prosecution was being considered against me for the very serious sounding offence of Dangerous Driving.   As a professional driver who would almost certainly lose my job, career and everything I have worked so hard for over the last 12 years, and having no experience of the legal system and how it works; to say I was terrified would be an understatement. Your advice, patience and time – all given freely and sympathetically – helped keep me sane throughout what has been a nightmarish experience.   I contacted 4 firms in all that day and count myself very lucky indeed that you were one of them.  The difference was immediately apparent and coming across such an obviously committed, sincere and caring individual was, I confess, a little unexpected and a huge relief. For any prospective client that may read this I would like you to know that the blurb on this website is not empty marketing… one firm I spoke to that day had an office junior return my call, who was neither knowledgeable nor interested in my situation, another wanted almost £50 from me just to speak to a solicitor on the phone!   Steve on the other hand returned my call personally, listened patiently and offered sensible, calming advice from someone who very clearly knew what they were talking about.  Money was never mentioned and over a 2 month period Steve and I spoke extensively by telephone on several occasions – every time I got sound advice, helpful information and moral support, given freely and generously. Not all solicitors are the same it would seem.   The story has a happy ending – the charge was reduced to Driving without Due Care and I have been offered a Driver Improvement Course in lieu of prosecution. This note, and the gift that I shall be mailing to you tomorrow are the very least I can do to say thank you. Please feel free to use the above as a testimonial if it will be of any value to you. I would be happy for you to refer anybody to me for a personal reference should they wish.   Thank you again for your help and support – I wish you all the very best (in my opinion you deserve it!).  Dangerous Driving. Mansfield Magistrates.  

*********************************************

  I found myself in a bad situation when I was caught in a driving offence.  I didn’t know who to turn to.  I came across motoringlawyersonline.com.  I spoke to Steve who made me feel at ease and very reassured.  He gave me good, sound, honest advice and looked over every aspect of my problem.  He guided me in the right direction to give me the best outcome possible in my situation.  And I have to say I was very pleased.  I am really thankful with all the help I received and would definitely recommend him to friends and family.  

*********************************************

  During my recent confrontation with the Police and subsequently with the Magistrates Court, Mr Steve Williams from Motoring Lawyers Online couldn’t have been more helpful and supportive of me throughout.  The only means I had of contacting him initially was via e-mail messages but when I received my Advanced Information he supplied me with a fax number immediately so that I could let him read the charge and the witness statement.   The advice he gave me was very professional but above all he was so empathetic and kind during a very traumatic time.   I would definitely recommend this Company and especially Steve to anyone who has been charged with a motoring offence and is not sure about what to do.   Unlike the Police and the Magistrates, Steve actually listened to me and kept in daily contact with me, even when he was not at work.  Exceptional!!   One very satisfied customer.

*********************************************

  I wanted to thank you for taking the time to advise me. I worked as a general litigator some time ago, and was fortunate enough to have a Litigation Partner who took on many cases pro bono. He was a very special, kind man, not just in the profession to make money.   I believe you seem to act under the same principles and don’t use the free call to engage a client. So again, a huge thank you. I believe you have saved us a lot of time, costs and effort had we decided to fight, not to mention the risk of losing.   Do you have a favourite Charity to whom I could make a Donation by way of thanking you for your time? Speeding. Sheffield Magistrates.  

*********************************************

  Steve, many thanks for your most valuable support, professionalism, advice and excellent customer service you provided with my recent court case. I would highly recommend your services to all during what can be a very stressful and difficult time. You totally exceeded expectations and are a excellent lawyer! Thanks again for doing a great job! Leicester Magistrates Court.  

***************************************

  Hi,   My name is Mr K****. I called this morning and a lady told me that a gentleman called Steve was going to call me back. He called me as promised and I am writing to thank you for the excellent advice, Steve advised me against appealing my case after he had heard everything. I find this to be incredibly honest, for once a lawyer has not tried to grab my money when he knew there was little chance to win. He called me using his phone and never tried to rush me along. All this for free? There are good, decent people left in this world, still!  Thank you!  

***********************************

  We got a great result but what touched me the most was seeing the look of relief on Steve’s face as the court announced the result. It showed me just how much he genuinely cared. I will recommend you to anyone. Drink Driving Nottingham Magistrates Court.

***********************************

  Hi Steve,   What can I say except a fantastic company you really have been a big help and all your work and commitment is highly appreciated. You’re a great guy and you have a fantastic team, Peter today was absolutely fantastic. I was so impressed with his dedication to helping me. You as a team have helped me to continue my career and kept my freedom. My family are very grateful for your support and help. You’re a great guy, would have been nice to have met you in person to say thank you so much. Keep up the hard work and you will be top of my list for recommendation. I will give you a call to thank you next week it leaves me to say thank you once again for all you have done. Exceptional Hardship Watford Magistrates.  

*********************************

 

Dear Steve,  
I would just like to say a very big thank you for taking on my case.  
You cannot begin to imagine how relieved I am that it is over without going to court.  I am so pleased that this incident is over and I believe that if we had not contacted you we would never have had this result.  

*********************************

  Easy, efficient and very well clarified in what was necessary.   The case had been better prepared and was better defended than I expected.   Many thanks for the “homework” worthily done to defend my case. Drink Driving, Newcastle Magistrates Court.  

*********************************

  Previous to speaking to Steve I had spoken to a local solicitor for a 10 minute consultation which cost me £40 and left me in floods of tears.  I searched online and found Forrest Williams who immediately put me at ease and gave me more free advice over the phone than my previous solicitor had for £40!   Steve recommended Duncan to represent me.  What a lovely man; he made sure we had plenty of time before going into Court to go through my case, re-assured me throughout, put a strong case forward in my defence and achieved a much lesser sentence for me than I expected.   Provided an exceptional service and delivered what you said you would deliver.  From the moment I picked up the phone to you to the final day walking away from court, you gave me help and re-assurance.   I only wish Steve was based in my town so I could meet and thank him in person. Drink Driving. Bournemouth Magistrates Court.  

*********************************

  I felt the odds were stacked against me and Steve really turned that around, getting a possible 12 month ban down to 3 months.  

*********************************

  To Steve and Katie   Thank you for helping me on my drink driving fine.   Also please thank Duncan who was absolutely lovely and had a never ending supply of tissues!  

*********************************

  From the moment I contacted Steven, he showed a professionalism, genuine interest, and care in my case which none of the other lawyers I canvassed when explaining my case had shown.   When I went into Court, I was facing a mandatory 17-24 months.  Steven negotiated with the prosecution and spoke with the judge in a non-adversarial way which convincingly got across the mitigating circumstances of my case, arguing with considerable skill, and I feel very strongly that because of Steven’s approach instead of a 17-24 month mandatory ban, the judge instead awarded a 9 month ban, saying he wanted to treat my case as sympathetically as possible, which was far beyond anything I hoped for.   I would unhesitatingly recommend Steven for anyone facing charges relating to any motoring offence, as an exceptionally knowledgeable, skilled, genuinely caring lawyer who is completely interested in getting the absolutely best results for his clients in any circumstances, however they may first appear.   I am so very grateful to Steven for everything he has done for me. Drink Driving. Feltham Magistrates London.  

*********************************

To Steve, I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help last week. I really appreciate it. Please find enclosed a small token of my appreciation. I thought you could get something for your daughter. Thanks again E  

*******************************

 Steve. Thank you and your great team very much for your fantastic work and help with my court case. I didn’t expect to keep my driving licence but we did it! S  

******************************

To Katie, Steve & Helen. Have the best Christmas ever and an even better New Year. Hope you stay in touch, I will miss you!! Thank you so much for everything you have done and for putting up with my constant phone calls and emails!! Love and hugs always K & B  

******************************

Helen, Thank you so much for all your kind words and continual support throughout a very worrying and stressful time in my life. G    

******************************

Dear Steve, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues both Helen and also to Angela (counsel) for helping me through my recent ordeal. I have now been able to return to my profession as a HGV Lorry Driver which prior to having contact with you personally seemed a highly unlikely possibility. Again I cannot thank you all too much and wold not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.  

*******************************

I was extremely satisfied with the whole procedure from the initial contact with you and through the days leading up to the court hearing which enabled me to feel more hopeful and optimistic prior to going into the court hearing. I am very satisfied with the person who represented me at the court hearing and felt that they were very professional and understanding and went about their duty to a very high standard indeed! Also I felt very comfortable with them prior to the hearing.  

*******************************

Your customer care goes beyond all expectations, never once have I been made to feel a nuisance, you have always spoken to me with kindness and understanding and reassurance. Katie, Helen and Steve have made a very stressful time a lot easier to bear, in fact I shall miss you all! Totally satisfied in every respect. Steve put us at ease as soon as we saw him. Felt in very safe hands. We would not have wanted anyone else representing us. Excellent in what he does, he cares about his clients, that it so clear. Katie and Helen are fantastic as is Steve, as is the whole company!! You have a business to be very proud of with staff who clearly love working together. I know I’ve said it before, but I really did strike gold when I found you on the internet. From our first conversation you put me at ease, your company has true family values and is human to speak to, every one cares!! There are really no words that express how so completely satisfied we are with everything you have done for us, you should be very proud of excellent staff and an excellent business. It has been a total joy getting to know you all.  

***********************************

Thank you to all the Forrest Williams team – you guys are amazing! T    

 ********************************

Absolutely superb. Tracy was a tower of strength and was very professional, re assuring and extremely competent. I have nothing but praise for this woman and the service she provided. Many, many thanks. Very satisfied.  

**********************************

Thank you and your team so so much, it is unbelievable, I’ve got my life back and can finally start planning my summer. The prep work done by yourselves and Andy’s (counsel) summing up was absolutely spot on and as I said to Andy yesterday I can’t recommend you highly enough.  

**************************************

 

To Steve, thank you again for all your guidance through a very difficult time. E

 

***************************************

Very satisfied. Calls answered quickly and returned promptly including emails and written correspondence. Calls were answered politely and advice given simply and efficiently. Any improvement? Provide a photo of the barrister in case of any problems as this would reassure clients by putting a face to a name. A call before the case would help (both of these suggestions implemented immediately). I was impressed with the speed at which my case was dealt with. Everything was clearly explained and I felt supported throughout. I won my case thanks to the professional advice and representation I received. As a result I kept my licence as a new driver instead of it being revoked. It was a pleasure to deal with [You] and I would recommend them unreservedly to anyone facing traffic offences and prosecution. The costs were reasonable and I would not have received a successful outcome had I not contacted you. Once again thank you for all your efforts in helping me keep my licence.  

*****************************************

Very satisfied. You were the only firm to look at the case realistically rather than steer me towards pleading not guilty. The contact from Steve, Helen and Katie has been great particularly Katie who took the time to reassure me over various things considering my inexperience with legal matters.  

***************************************

 

All your staff have been superb and demonstrated a very caring and empathetic side to a profession not associated with kindness. Never had to deal with court/lawyers before and you all made it less stressful. Please pass on our grateful thanks for the efforts of Steve and Ceri (counsel), and also Helen and Katie – all lovely people.

 

*****************************************

Extremely satisfied – Katie immediately put my mind at rest regarding the letter I had received and I felt confident that she grasped my case and my wishes regarding the plea.  

*****************************************

Everyone on the phone was very helpful and all the information I received was brilliant. Extremely satisfied – I was well represented and it paid off with a minimum disqualification. The gentleman representing me was very professional and understanding of my circumstances. He represented me well and as a result I was given a minimum disqualification. Thanks for your help. PS all the girls in the office were very helpful.  

*******************************************

Thank you for your help over the last few days. L & J  

*******************************

Dear Steve. Many thanks for a first class service for my trial for drink driving. From start to finish I received a second to none service from yourself and your team. I was informed every step of the way and I was treated with respect not a number. I would also like to say thank you to Helen. She was great, answered all my concerns throughout a credit to your company. I would say anyone facing a drink drive charge to make you their first pint of contact for their sake. A brilliant service again and I wish you and your team all the best in the future.
