What our clients say

"Stephensons provided comprehensive and timely communication in a case that took a few years to resolve. I was given sound advice and felt fully supported throughout the difficult process. I highly recommend this firm to anyone who may need their services." - View from a satisfied client

"I cannot recommend this company highly enough. My discrimination case was handled professionally and with the utmost efficiency by Rebecca (and Rimsha) and I was regularly updated and informed of everything that was going on throughout. Any queries I had were responded to extremely swiftly and I felt reassured and confident that Stephensons were absolutely acting in my best interests at all times, from my initial contact with them right through to the successful conclusion of the matter." - View from a satisfied client

"This was the first time I've dealt with this firm, as a client. I can very highly recommend them. I have received lots of support, the communication was great and prompt. The staff were very good, polite and knowledgeable. I felt like I was being looked after and not just a number. Without their help it would have been very difficult for me to do this, so a big thank you to all the staff. If I ever need this kind of help in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again. I had the following lovely people dealing with my case: Ashley I., Lucy B., and Charlotte B" - View from a satisfied client

"With reference to recent issue I had with my (now former) employer, I contacted Stephensons LLP and initially spoke with Joanne Ribchester (who took all relevant case background and details) and in turn referred this matter to Vicki Fagan.

Vicki was very informative and gave good advice and provided an excellent case and articulate argument, that resulted in a favourable dispute resolution.

I would highly recommend both Vicki, Joanne and Stephensons LLP as an excellent law firm, as this whole case was investigated, prepared, put forward and resolved (won!) and settled in 2 months." - View from a satisfied client

"No hesitation in giving a five star review for Stephensons. Their hard work and dedication secured me with a substantial outcome after my previous solicitors firm had given up on the matter. I can't thank you girls enough... Maria Chadwick, Abigail Martland, Amy and anyone else involved with my case worked speedily, efficiently and more importantly always with my best interest at heart from start to finish. I trusted their judgement and advice to the point I would have allowed them free reign to make decisions for me without the need for my approval. I was always kept up to date on everything with things being explained in simple terms for us lesser mortals when needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stephensons to anyone needing legal help and they will certainly be my 1st port of call next time if I need any further help in the future. Thanks again Maria, Abigail and Amy. YOU GIRLS ROCK!" - View from a satisfied client

"Helpful advice and friendly service. Help you to understand your case in more detail and guide you through smoothly." View from a satisfied discrimination client

"I am very happy with the service that I have received from Stephensons.

From the outset my queries were dealt with quickly and efficiently – many other firms that I contacted took much longer to get back to me, and were difficult to reach.

Martha provided good advice and allayed my fears when I had certain queries that were worrying me. She also provided services that were above and beyond that expected, helping me to redraft my letter, and providing me with help and guidance every step of the way.

Needless to say, I received a favourable outcome on my case, and I believe it was all down to the professional and reliable service that Martha provided.

I would highly recommend Martha and Stephensons if you have an employment case that you need to resolve." View from a satisfied client

"I cannot fault the service provided by Stephensons Solicitors. My Case Manager was Gemma Wilson who always acted extremely professional. Nothing was too much trouble in assisting me resolve and get a satisfactory resolution to my discrimination case. I would highly recommend their services if you have a legal problem." - View from a satisfied discrimination client

“I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with you. I am extremely pleased with the level of your professionalism and expertise. You handled yourself with diplomacy and tact in dealing with my case. Despite my employer hiring the UK’s largest law firm, you taught them a huge lesson that discrimination is not permitted. You are truly a discrimination specialist, a legal eagle that possesses great skills, knowledge and extensive legal experience. You provided me with grand and transcendent services and you’re such an inspiration for generations to come. Without you, I would have not won my case. I will make recommendations of your services to friends and family. Thank you so much." View from a satisfied client

“I have so much gratitude for your services. I consulted other services before I came across Stephenson's and didn't feel comfortable accepting their support as nothing felt straight forward and it was difficult enough dealing with the situation I was in already. What made your services stand out was the ease of access, the way you simplified the process and took me through me through each stage. You kept me informed and updated and eased the process of which would have been very stressful to attempt to do on my own.

You built a trusting relationship in the early stages which enabled me to remain confident in my decisions and explained the legal jargon in a way that I could fully understand what was being said or asked of me.

In my view we got a good result because you always gave me a balanced view which allowed me to make choices that felt right for me and my circumstances. This allowed me to feel empowered with my own decisions.

I think the role you play in bridging the communication of a disabled person in seeking justice is an honest one and a difficult challenge considering the complexity of law in this area. You gave me a voice and communicated it very well to get us to the end stage and have been an incredible support.” View from a satisfied client

"Thank you for all your help and support regarding my recent claim for unfair dismissal and the final outcome.
When I first contacted you by telephone you were very understanding of my situation and gave me guidance on how I should proceed with my claim. This was done before being formally appointed as my representative and it is for this reason that I chose you as my solicitor.
Throughout the past months you have supported me and continued to show understanding and for this I truly thank you... I sincerely hope that you have a long, rewarding and successful future." View from a satisfied client
"It is clear to us that but for the trained intervention from people such as yourselves, many employees up and down the country would routinely find themselves in difficult situations, having to endure bullying and intimidation of varying degrees, too afraid to speak up or seek redress owing to concerns about the consequences for their job security or financial settlements, were they to do so.  
Thanks to you it wasn't necessary to suffer in silence or to go quietly. You were extremely professional at all times and displayed an excellent grasp of the applicable law and procedure, but perhaps most importantly you showed a willingness and strength of character to engage the employer in no uncertain terms, forcing the firm to abide by the law and moving the matter to a fair settlement." View from a satisfied client
