Here at Regan Peggs Solicitors we are fortunate to be regularly joined by interns from Birmingham City University. This instalment of the Intern’s Diary is written by one of them, Hannah Mambu.

Monday 10th December
Today was a busy morning and afternoon for Regan as he was in court and attending meetings for the majority of the day. His court hearing concerned an application for a confiscation order – the final hearing is set for this Friday. Gemma was also out of the office, so I had to be in charge of my own time for much of the day.
Tomorrow, Regan is representing a client who faces being disqualified as a totter. Regan is going to argue that this will cause him exceptional hardship, and seek to keep him driving. I organised all of the court bundles, something which takes a long time, because we have to be sure that they are correct.
Next I sorted out more correspondence for another client who’s trial is also this week. That client faces an allegation of failing to provide a specimen of breath to the police. We have managed to obtain important medical evidence, and I provided it to the court and prosecution, so that they can consider it ahead of the trial.
Throughout the day I received lots of calls from potential clients. I took detail about their cases, so that Regan was able to return calls later in the day. I will be able to work on some of those cases next week!
It was a relaxed day in the office.
