Chester had spent the day enjoying his hobby of golfing. After a morning on the range he had lunch with friends along with three alcoholic drinks. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the range and before leaving to drive home he foolishly made the decision to have another drink.
Chester was driving on the motorway and the vehicle behind him happened to be a police car. Chester’s driving appeared to be erratic and he was therefore pulled over and as a result provided a breath sample at the roadside.
Chester was understandably mortified and was compliant with the officers throughout; he could not express his remorse enough.
As the breathalyser machine at the station was not working, Chester provided a specimen of blood for analysis. He was later released on bail and this is when he called Forrest Williams, after being recommended to our specialist firm by a friend.
Chester knew that this call was the only one he’d have to make; he was confident from the outset that he had called the right firm to look after his case and represent him in court. He quickly built a good rapport with his caseworker and was never pressured into trying to “fight the system” by pleading not guilty. Chester knew he had done wrong and needed support through his first offence, which Forrest Williams were able to provide him.
We fully prepared Chester’s mitigation and instructed a barrister to represent him at his hearing. His mitigation was presented well and Forrest Williams managed to persuade the courts to sentence him leniently.
Chester’s feedback was:
I was referred via a friend of mine who spoke very highly of your firm. I did not contact any other firms, you were professional, accurate, efficient and very supportive. I was very happy with the representation and I am relieved about the outcome and very pleased with the final sentence.
