Client Testimonials

I was faced with a hard court charge for driving whilst suspended and my driving record contained over 25 offences, I was referred to NGM by a friend who been in similar trouble before. From when I first contacted the NGM team to walking out of that court, I was well informed and felt very prepared no matter what the outcome would be. Amanda knows how to make court proceedings easy to understand and work with your schedule and lifestyle to ensure on the big day you feel prepared. I was lucky to get a Section 10 even though my driving record and charge warranted a much more severe punishment. Amanda was able to position the case correctly and made sure we were well prepared every step of the way. I recommend NGM and Amanda Pappas to anyone that needs legal aid, you can trust them to represent you 100%.
