“Such an amazing lawyer”

Jonathan was excellent in helping me through a difficult situation when I lost my license for six months for mid range drink driving offence. I was very stressed and didn’t know what to do but Jonathan stepped in and helped. He knew it was hard for me because I needed to drive for work and I would have lost my job. Jonathan was very helpful and won me my license back which I am very grateful for. He saved my job and my life. Thank you for everything Jonathan!”….read more
