Information regarding my case was gathered in a very swift and affordable manner. Due to the eloquence that my Lawyer portrayed during the trial, I left the courtroom with no conviction. I Can't commend GTC Lawyers highly enough for their professionalism throughout the whole process. Thank you!

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.

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.
