Another Successful Police Caution Removal

We have again had a police caution removed for a client, a medical professional.

The client was wrongly advised to accept a police caution which seriously affected their professional career.

After analysing the client’s case, and making lengthy and detailed legal submissions, we were able to pursued the police to delete the client’s caution and PNC record.

Researching into getting Cautions removed showed they are only removed in exceptional circumstances and even then, very rarely. Internet searches showed one name coming up consistently with good results for Doctors, Dentists and other professionals – Matthew Elkins.

I contacted Matt to see whether it would be feasible to remove the Caution, and received pragmatic and sensible advice.

He was clear in the stages we would need to go through and I was fully informed of the fees I would need to pay at each stage.

Matt’s attention to detail was superb and he was really thorough in making sure my statement for the request to remove my Caution was as comprehensive as possible.

The net result was that the Caution was removed and my police record cleared well inside the six month time scale it was expected to take.

Matt has helped me restore my reputation and self-respect, and for that I am eternally grateful.

If you have received an unfair police caution and it is holding you back then please get in touch. In most case we can usually charge a reasonable fixed fee.

Please get in touch today to discuss your case.
