I wanted to personally thank you for all your help with my case. I think it was handled In a professional manner and the whole process was easier to navigate and understand with your help.
I recently engaged Andrew Fraser to represent me on a first offence drink driving charge. Andrew clearly articulated the issues at hand, he detailed the range of possible outcomes and how to position ourselves to achieve the best of these outcomes. Whilst he made no promises, his advice and guidance in preparing for my case was spot-on.
I could not be happier with the service Andrew provided, nor the outcome achieved.
I thank Andrew very much for making me feel at ease and informed during this harrowing experience. Very prompt responses to questions. Thank you Andrew and thank you Armstrong Legal.
Great outcome! Thanks for your efforts. We will be forever grateful.
Going to court is an unpleasant experience. But sitting next to Andrew and hearing him speak in my defence I felt safe, and that whatever the outcome was that I was in good hands. Because of Andrews hard work and skill I got a result I couldn't even dream of. Very happy customer. If I ever find myself needing legal help in the future (hopefully not) it will be straight back to Andrew Fraser from Armstrong legal.
Mr Fraser was very professional. He offered clear advice on what I should do in my own best interests. He provided clear and authoritative responses to my questions. I felt that Mr Fraser's experience with the Magistrate and his knowledge of the Magistrate's preferred 'modus operandi' was invaluable. I am sure that Mr Fraser's advice and his representation was significant in achieving the best possible outcome for me.
Andrew Fraser helped me in a very professional way. I will definitely recommend him to my friend with similar problems. Thanks again, Andrew!
Thanks for you help again. It is a relief leave the court with a non-conviction order.
Thank you so much Andrew. So happy with the result and will be recommending you to anyone that needs help!
Appreciated Andrew's professional approach.
