Car was impounded, and licence suspended after being pulled over as a “hoon” which was (btw) a load of *&^%. The Gotocourt lawyers were great, fast efficient, which was obvious after my first call which was answered immediately, gave me some great advice over the phone on what to prepare and had me scheduled to see their lawyer that afternoon. Top bloke, very friendly and well spoken. Totally destroyed the charges in court – when all was said and done my penalty was less than your general parking ticket.
