I was charged with Over 80 and I hired X-Copper. I would not hesitate to recommend X-Copper to anyone that has been charged with a criminal offence. The first meeting was free and they told me exactly... [Read More] ...for me and I only had to take one day off from work for the last day in court. My overall experience with X-Copper was excellent. I won’t hesitate to call these guys again (but hopefully not!!!). "
