On the 7th of November 2009 I was driving my vehicle along Bradford Road. It was a dark night and street lighting was limited. I ran over a hazardous traffic island which was not visible to me. It caused my vehicle to be substantially damaged along with a huge jolt to myself wherein I suffered with pain to my neck area. Despite the local council being aware of the hazardous island, no repairs were carried out. I contacted Ashmans Solicitors who pointed out the breaches of duty by the local council. To my amazement, the council denied all knowledge of the island and denied liability. Ashmans Solicitors pursued on my behalf the local council vigorously and issued court proceedings against them. I am happy to say that they successfully argued my case and I won my case. Ashmans Solicitors were completely professional in their approach from start to finish. They kept me informed of my case throughout and I was overjoyed with the outcome and service. I would not hesitate to recommend Ashmans Solicitors.
Ashman’s Solicitors successfully secures acquittal in a high profile fraud and money laundering case.
Ashman’s specialist fraud and money laundering department headed by the principal solicitor Mr. Imran Ali represented a former worker of a Charity, which had been set up in 2000 by another Defendant who had pleaded guilty. The Charity had received hundreds of thousands of pounds in funding from Lancashire County Council for charity work.
The prosecution alleged impropriety in the way the charity was run, involving dishonestly obtaining funds from charity funding providers, which they put to their own use.
Ashman’s solicitor’s fraud and money laundering department prepared the case meticulously. This involved trawling through several years of documentation and instructing an expert Forensic Accountant and a specialist fraud Barrister. We worked tirelessly to ensure that no stone was left unturned and managed to secure a favorable outcome, which was one of Not Guilty.
I instructed Ashmans Solicitors to recover all of my heads of claim including my vehicle damage, personal injury, and my out-of-pocket expenses. I would like to say the following about Ashmans Solicitors: I had never been involved in an accident before and was initially weary of instructing a law firm but I was glad that I instructed Ashmans. They were professional and courteous throughout the whole claims process. They were able to promptly and efficiently deal with my claim. They did not devalue my claim and they recovered in excess of £10,000 for my soft tissue injuries. I would not hesitate in recommending my family and friends to Ashmans Solicitors. God forbid but if I am ever involved in any other accidents in the future I would definitely return to Ashmans for their assistance.
