What Our Clients Say
Testimonials From Some Of Our Clients
“I was charged with refusing a breath test -I contacted my old solicitor who wanted money put into their trust account before they would see me. I contacted LIZA PEARCE & ASSOCIATES – she met me at court – charged a fraction of what my old solicitor had quoted and due to a mistake in the wording of the police charge – had the charge thrown out! Brilliant !!!”
“Unfortunately I had priors for drink driving and was to appear at court on another drink driving charge. I had been told I was looking at jail. Liza Pearce got me into a alcohol counselling and managed my court matters until I was well enough. We attended court – the Magistrate was so impressed with my progress I didn’t go to jail. Thankyou Liza ”
