Excellent representation and the best outcome I could have asked for. Went to court for a driving while suspended charge, fantastic during the whole ordeal. Not only was the fine waived, but more importantly I was able to keep my license and stay on the road.

Hopefully I won't ever be in a position to need a lawyer again, but they were very professional and great to deal with. Would definitely recommend.

BEST LAWYERS EVER. Shame they don’t have the same taste in coffee as me, but I’ll let that pass. Thanks for looking after me guys – smiling as I leave this review. I’d give 10 stars but Google won’t allow it *sigh*

I would like to congratulate you and GTC Lawyers on professional and efficient conduct and communications throughout your handling of Dads traffic matter, in particular, the extremely well-written Reps and the strategic way in which you represented the matter before the magistrate today.

I urgently needed a lawyer for my second day's court attending. I called Go To Court Lawyers at 8am, and I secured an appointment in the afternoon. My lawyer gave me the advice and encouraged me to deal with it on my own, as I am unemployed and my case was pretty small. I appreciate the honesty, his consideration of my financial situation and his encouragement.

Ows it goin. Yes I was relieved to b able to speak of my experience and b listend to with open minds and of a non-bias approach. All the staff I av spoken to at GTC av been friendly and helpful. I don't do any of this as a cover up of any of my behavior, I am fed up with bein lied to and about. Very nice fellas and I av confidence in confiding with/to em both. Ther assistant is a nice lady too. Has given me extra time of his to help and I am very appreciative of him doin so. I must say the "system" needs a re-vamp in regards to the person protected and or application and of VRO's to b held accountable for communication during an order of which they have askd for to protect them... Thanku for ur svc's,
