"Having approached Stephensons I was totally impressed by their professionalism in dealing with three different legal areas simultaneously. In an area where emotions from my perspective were involved they showed understanding, patience combined with a friendly approach which made our discussion much easier. I would like to include the receptionists in this as well as their welcome always came across as genuine and not just a requirement of their employment. It all helps." - View from a satisfied client

"I cannot praise this firm highly enough. Everything they said they would do happened and they were extremely supportive and understanding during what were very difficult circumstances. I dealt with solicitors from different offices within the firm too and they were all highly professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Would happily recommend them."

"I would like to thank Stephensons and in particular Lauren Evans who was appointed as the solicitor to manage probate in relation to my aunt's estate. As the sole executor I appreciated Lauren's professional skills and competence in bringing my aunt's wishes to a conclusion. I also welcomed her flexibility and responsiveness to any queries I had. I would recommend Lauren and Stephensons without reservation. Thank you"
