Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Andy Bazzi recently succeeded in having a driving charge withdrawn. His client was speeding on a motorcycle when a police officer began pursuing him. The client sped off and was out of sight within seconds. Police attended his house and charged him with failing to stop.
The client pleaded not guilty and the matter was listed for hearing. Mr Bazzi subsequently convinced prosecutions to withdraw the charge. Footage from the client's dashcam showed that he would have been unable to identify the vehicle pursuing him as a police vehicle and Mr Bazzi argued that his client mistakenly believed he was being pursued by an angry motorist. Prosecution agreed to withdraw the charge.
