It is a great pleasure for me to write a testimonial for Stephen Oldham of Stephen Oldham Solicitors.
Stephen acted for me on a driving offence case which could have resulted in my being disqualified from driving had I been found guilty. However, as a result of his defence strategy, the CPS agreed that it would not be in the public interest to pursue the matter.<!–more–>
So my case never even went to court. This was not only a great relief but also quite beyond my expectations.
For the moment, as a new company, Stephen has a rather unique business model. He has no office. He works from home. He has no other employees. I was given his name by another solicitor. There are, however, many advantages with this model at this stage.
First and foremost, during our work together, I felt that I was his only client – though I know this not to have been the case. He appeared to be on call 24/7. My first contact with him was a 7pm telephone call to my home after I had a left a message for him at 4.30pm that same day.
Once he accepted my case, communication between us was immediate and personal.
Whatever we discussed on the phone was backed up in writing by email within less than 24 hours. As a result of this immediate follow-up to all our discussions we were able, very swiftly, to develop a step by step strategy for my defence. This clear, comprehensive strategy was then presented to the CPS well before the trial. As a result they finally agreed to drop the case.
In all our conversations I was impressed by his knowledge of the relevant laws, cases related to my situation and legal procedure. I would have no hesitation to recommend him as a well-qualified, realistic and pragmatic counsel.
