TESTIMONIALS
What the Clients Say:
"A tall imposing figure with a quiet but commanding manner, it took Mr Dart but a few minutes to assess my situation and offer concise, practical advice. Within hours he had me set free from the police station but whereas the police planned to release me late at night, 90 miles from home with no coat or money, he insisted that they drive me home because of my physical and mental state".

"Over the next 12 months he remained a tower of strength counselling,          consoling and supporting me. Without his constant reassurance and wise     words I would have buckled under the strain. My situation that was tried and settled 40 years ago, was finally laid to rest entirely because of his efforts. I would heartily commend his services to anyone without hesitation".
Steven K. - February 2016

"Andrew was my lawyer when I found myself facing some very serious charges. I put my future in his hands at a very frightening and stressful time. Andrew is a very thorough and complete and competent, who is very well versed in the law, he took me through the legal process in a way that I could understand. He always kept me fully informed of any developments regarding my case. If I needed to speak to him on the phone he would always take my calls or return my calls if he was busy. I cannot praise him highly enough for his support, caring attitude and dedication to my case. Thankfully I won my case and was cleared of all charges and for that i can’t thank him enough".
Kenneth R - January 2016
