Allegation of careless driving dropped by prosecution following representations made to Prosecution by Richard Silver – Birmingham Magistrates' Court

“I have been using Richard Silver Solicitors for over 5 years. During that time he has dealt many cases for me. In every case he has been very thorough and professional. Due to Richard's hard work and attention to detail, the outcome I have received in every case has been more then satisfactory. Therefore, Richard Silver Solicitors is my first call I make whenever a situation arises.
Thank You to the whole team !!!
Dr A.M., London - 28/05/22
“I can’t express how grateful I am to Judith and Richard Silver. I was accused of the above and felt I was being wrongly accused which led undue and unfair distress on myself. Judith was incredibly compassionate and was on my side from the very beginning. Thankfully with her representation and help responding to the accusation we were able to deal with the matter without any further action and subsequently the case was closed. This was the best possible outcome.
I had spoken to solicitors from other firms who tried to make me feel that the only possible route to go down was going to court and pleading guilty which would result in a criminal conviction, a fine and points on my licence. Initially this didn’t make sense and left me feeling quite hopeless and even more distressed. It became clear that for them it would have been more lucrative to convince me to do this than to agree to be on my side and help with a written representation. Judith didn’t do this and instead did what was best for me, her client and helped me get the right and best outcome. For this I will always be thankful. I couldn’t have asked for better legal representation and would thoroughly recommend Judith and this firm.

Allegation of speeding - prosecution dropped following representations made by Solicitor – Gateshead Magistrates' Court
Ade of Newcastle - 04/10/21
“In January 2021 I was caught speeding. However, I felt very badly done to as the last time I was on this road it was definitely 40MPH. Seemingly they had changed the speed limit without putting up any signs.
I had some points on my licence and any more would have jeopardised my employment as I drove as part of my job.
I challenged my local Police force to which they promised to investigate the matter. However, in my opinion after nearly six months of miscommunication and poor administration on their part, they summoned me to magistrate’s court with the threat of 6 points and up to £1000 fine.
I then instructed Richard Silver Solicitors. Richard and his team listened to my worries clearly and carefully and laid out all the options and for the first time I knew exactly what the possible outcomes were. Richard clearly explained his fees and left it up to me as to how I was to proceed. I was also very poorly at the time and Richard was very mindful and considerate of this.
There were many flaws in the prosecution and Richard was able to convey this to the Courts in such a way so as to give me the best chance.
I was delighted that on ‘court day’ the prosecution dropped all charges. The relief I felt was enormous, I became very emotional. It had been 9 months of uncertainty and stress.
I can’t thank Richard enough for his wisdom, kindness, and professionalism. He is the ‘Harvey Specter’ of Motoring Law!

Finally in the actual court hearing itself your presentation was superb. You addressed every point we had discussed in the optimum order, your arguments were clear and concise and even as the defendant concerned I felt quite touched by the completely factual picture you painted for the magistrates. Your reference to case law was impressive and I appreciated you checking with me that everything had been presented correctly.
