What our clients say

"On behalf of our family, we want to thank your law firm, your family department, and in particular solicitor Tim Galbraith and Barrister Woodward for the great and excellent work they did for our sister, daughter, cousin and in-law.

You have shown us that there is justice in Great Britain. You have also made us believe in the British legal system. We will always be grateful.

You were very diligent in your work, hardworking, meticulous and honest. There was no discrimination, no bias, and you let us know all the details as they came in. There was no shadow of doubt in your expertise and professionalism. While we know that the event we have gone through was very strange to us, we are however grateful that we have a law firm like Stephensons working for us always even at odd times (i.e. on weekends).

Once again, thank you to all the staff at Stephensons. You have done a great job." - View from the family of a client

"This firm is a breath of fresh air in being independent open and honest as to the advice and help and assistance given to myself in the matter. They have responded to me at all times in a timely matter and been professional at all times. I would highly recommend this firm as they go beyond and above in a firm that in my opinion is not afraid of putting their head above the parapet which others would refrain from doing." - View from a satisfied client

"I have nothing but praise for Mike Devlin. Mike brought to my case a scholarly approach. He was able to look both at the fine details as well as the broader view of a very complex family matter.

Mike as always patient with my requests, never failed to take my calls (or ring me back quickly if he was not available immediately) and always sought to explain the legal proceedings in straightforward and accurate manner.

"As a result of Mike's highly focussed and diligent efforts he was able to achieve more in 2 months than what my previous law firm completely failed to do in 2 years. Mike won the case, and as a result gave me immense peace of mind. Thank you Mike." Mrs KA Rahman

"Thank you not just for the excellent way in which you handled my case but also for the personal support that you gave me throughout. I couldn't have wished for better. Thank you." Ron Wallis

"I have to say that for me, you have been highly unusual in your profession in always being so prompt and efficient in dealing with my case and all my 'ad hoc' queries. I have greatly appreciated this. You have left a very favourable impression on me in the way you have handled my case and supported me through what has been a very difficult passage in my life. I have spoken to several people in a similar position who have had nothing like the service or empathy that I have experienced and I would not hesitate to recommend you personally to others for such professional services. You have made this difficult passage considerably easier for me than I had hoped or expected, so please accept my very sincere thanks for that."

"I recently separated from my husband and rang your offices for some information that was about 3 months ago, since then I have rang or emailed and spoke to Rebecca Jones on a weekly, sometimes daily basis.

"She has been a breath of fresh air and showed me such empathy and support it has overwhelmed me. She has written to me in plain English and answered the same question over and over again because I haven’t been able to understand.

"I have never met her but I think she is a wonderful asset to your company and I would have no hesitation in leaving her to deal with my divorce as I know she puts a 100% into everything."
Bridgette Simpson

"From day one, I have received nothing but dedicated first class service from Gillian Davies – Family Division of Stephensons. I would not have succeeded without her single-minded dedication, professional guidance with a compassionate understanding of my situation. I cannot speak highly enough of Gillian!"

"Reliable, friendly service with an organised approach, giving timely advice which works in the best interests of its clients."
Stephen Evans - Official Solicitor’s Office

"Words cannot express my gratitude to our solicitor, who is a credit to Stephensons and her profession. Her warmth and compassion supported me through a very difficult time, giving not only good legal advice but also some wise counsel.

"If I could summarise the assistance I have received in just two words, they would be “Empathetic Professionalism” (two words that do not normally go together in business). Whilst I hope I will never need professional assistance again, I will gladly continue to recommend Stephensons to those who do.

"In what has been a difficult time, I have appreciated the professional way in which Stephensons has dealt with my case, and the humanity shown by my solicitor in all matters and dealings with us.”

“When I initially went to Stephensons, I had just started divorce proceedings and needed good legal advice. My case was taken on by a Family Executive, who firstly referred my husband and myself for mediation. When this failed to settle issues amicably, she dealt with all matters of the divorce, including the sale of the house and residence order for my son.

"When I recently received threatening behaviour from my ex-husband, I was able to return straight to her with my concerns and ensure that any problems were dealt with immediately.

"Throughout the whole process, which has lasted for over a year, she has been professional, trustworthy and friendly, and I can’t fault Stephensons’ service at all.”

Our Trustpilot reviews

The level of service that was provided was excellent and one which was professional, understanding and the most important for me was empathy. I myself am a very organised individual and like things done on time without delay, Stephensons understood this and respected what was important to me and for children.
