  • Avatar Paul Gibson ★★★★★ in the last week
    Great service from start to finish! I'm very happy with the process and results achieved by Pragma … More Law! Would highly recommend! Couldn't imagine going through court without David Swingler's representation, advice and help!
  • Avatar Anthony Hughes ★★★★★ a week ago
    I contacted David at Pragma Law after I was involved in quite a serious collision with two lorries. Whilst … More under heavy medication and having sustained a very serious face injury, the police stated I refused to provide a specimen for analysis.
    David assured me from the initial call that he would do all he can to help me.
    On the day if my trial, I met David at court (he was already sitting in court preparing for the day ahead).
    Due to the completely flawed case against me and lack of any evidence, David managed to get my case dismissed without the trial commencing!
    My job and life requires me to have a driving license. I cannot speak highly enough of David and how he has helped not just me but my daughter too who relies on me.
    If you feel you need legal representation I can assure you David is who you need to represent you. He was completely transparent and professional throughout.
