Cerys, instructed privately by Bishop and Light, represented the health care professional in proceedings at which he was at serious risk of losing his driving licence. She was able to explain the adverse effect that this would have not only on his work, but also those patients who rely upon him, including for home visits. As a consequence, the Court exceptionally departed from the Guidelines for such cases.
Sean Gould, Senior Clerk, says, ‘This is a very good example of how the junior barristers here at Westgate are able to provide a comprehensive service in all areas of Crime. Cerys not only achieved a fantastic result, but in addition she was able to give to the client, who had no previous experience of the criminal justice system, advice and assistance both before and after the hearing. I know that he and his family were very grateful for the excellent service that they received’.
