Accreditations / Awards

Jeremy (Scott), I just wanted to thank you for today. I think your presence with me at the police station really helped, and lead to the charges being dropped.


Thank you once again for all your help (Jeremy Scott) and support through, what was, an extremely stressful time and also for achieving such a positive outcome for myself. I honestly thought I would get 8 points and a huge fine, so that was a massive relief.


'The case against me has been dropped. What a relief. I feel much in your debt. With much thanks,'


"Jeremy Scott is a highly experienced regulatory lawyer."
