My partner found herself in a tricky situation involving a DD charge, fortunately after having a chat with Nick.. he gave us his proffesional opinion on how he believes it this case would pan out. Everything he said that first day was accurate, and a fantastic outcome for us. Highly recommended anyone needing legal advice in regards to similar matters to do themselves a favour and go see Nick. Thanks again for your help and advice!

Very Impressed and Highly recommended. I was charged with driving on a suspended license before and after getting the Extraordinary License was charged again for breaching it and was facing a certain cancellation of the license. Nick addressed everything beautifully and made the prosecutor drop some charges from Statements of Materials Facts and I walked away with a Fine only.

Nick is highly professional, and knows his stuff.I was facing 2 charges, Drink Driving above 0.08, and Careless Driving. With Nick's legal services I managed to get minimum sentencing and a Spent Conviction on both charges. Safe to say Nick's services have saved me from so much pain and trouble in the future.

Mr Stevenson was very through in obtaining all relevant details for my extraordinary licence application. Made things easy to understand. Police didn't oppose our application and neither did the Magistrate. As a matter of fact the Magistrate gave us more than we were asking for. I give Nick 5 Stars plus the coveted Koala stamp for exceptional service. Nicks the real deal.
