Recently one of our Road Transport specialists, Michelle O'Garro, represented a Transport Manager/Operator in a Public Inquiry. Faced with almost certain revocation, the client was delighted when the Traffic Commissioner determined that revocation was unnecessary. Michelle's methodical and meticulous approach to her cases, puts the individuals or companies she represents in the strongest position.
