Customer Question
I decided to represent...

I decided to represent myself in court on a traffic infringement. If the prosecution does not have any material evidence except the word of a police officer that my case should be dismissed.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

It happened in North Sydney NSW on the 17 Nov

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Please explain what you mean

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thanks,

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
