Paralegal case worker Katie Forrest was delighted to successfully prepare an Exceptional Hardship case for a client recently.
The case, which came before Sheffield Magistrates Court, asked the Court to allow the client to continue driving despite his latest offence taking him to 14 penalty points.
The case was extremely difficult and complex, due to the client’s business arrangements.
A great deal of preparation was conducted before the case was presented by Forrest Williams’ principal, Steve Williams.
“I knew this was a case that our strongest advocate needed to present, so there was no doubt in my mind that only Steve Williams was the right person to manage this case.” says Katie Forrest.
The magistrates considered all of the evidence and ultimately decided to grant Exceptional Hardship, allowing our client to avoid a ban.
The client, naturally, who had been warned that his case was very difficult and therefore attended Court feeling very aware of the potential outcome, was delighted.
