Neil’s comments

“I am proud of the firm that I have created and the exemplary standard of legal representation and client care that my firm provides. Most of all I am proud of the honest and candid advice that we provide to motorists, as if we cannot help and if we do not believe we can add value to a persons case, then this will be explained.

I do truly believe that in this day and age with the reliance that we all place on our licences, be it in work or family life, that motorists should have access to high quality legal representation in order to redress the balance, as many motorists feel that they are at war with the enforcement authorities with a proliferation of speed cameras and other such devices.

I am not a “loophole” lawyer and simply present our clients cases in accordance with the law, as it should and as it must be applied and I do believe that all motorists should drive responsibly even though we all fallible to the occasional mistake.

My assurance to any motorist or driver contacting Caddick Davies Solicitors is that you will always receive the best possible level of legal representation, provided in a very straight forward and honest manner”.
