You can scan and email the documents to [email protected] and ask that they send them on to JGM and I can look at them for you. You should also narrate the whole story as I'm not certain what all this is about yet.

I was involved in a rta where I knocked someone I was a taxi driver the person was actually in my cab sometime before I picked him up took him to address he got out went to a flat came back towards cab but went past and ran away I caught up with him to confront him but he went to attack me I got away tried to drive off he ran in front of cabi knocked him down but due to the circumstances I panicked I failed to stop the worst mistake of my life police charged me with attempted murder it was reduced to dangerous driving I was never driving dangerously I was within the speed limit and cab was facing opposite way when I made contact accouto the police forenciscs due to criminal court case tradex wanted to speak to me but my lawyer refused this is why my lawyer has given me bad advice

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
