What our clients say

"I recently instructed Stephensons to represent me with my case. Before I was allocated a Solicitor I had the pleasure of being in contact with Sarah Prior on a daily basis who helped me and always made me feel comfortable. She was very reassuring to me throughout this very difficult time. Every question I asked was answered. I later met Andrea Woods who was as reassuring as Sarah. I only met Andrea once but felt at ease straight away. She was very professional all the way through my case and always kept me updated and reassured. I can't thank these ladies enough for all their help and support over this very difficult time for myself and my family." - View from a satisfied client

"We would highly recommend the excellent service provided to us by both Andrea Woods and Duncan Phillips recently. From our first meeting with Andrea, who we found to be very helpful and efficient, and went above and beyond expectations to keep us informed at every stage, to our final meeting with Duncan who enabled us to achieve a fantastic outcome, we really can't thank you enough! I am so glad we chose Stephenson solicitors, and would not hesitate to use them again for any representation. Exceptional service, also thank you to Faye for all her help and time given throughout!" - View from a satisfied client

"Andrea Woods helped me in my court case. Without her help the case would’ve been extremely complex and time-consuming. Andrea helped to simplify the case wish made it so much easier for me, and as a result I won my case. Thank you Andrea because you went above and beyond." - View from a satisfied client

"I would like to send a big thank you to Christine Hodge and Andrea Woods who provided exceptional representation and advice during a difficult time, always on the other end of the phone to answer any worries and questions. From start to finish they have been extremely professional, I would recommend anyone needing representation to contact Stephensons." - View from a satisfied client

"The solicitor you provided helped me at the magistrates court, explained the process and discussed the case with me going through the prosecution's statement. There were several inaccuracies, and procedures and evidence that were not presented properly by the prosecution. The solicitor put forward these points, fully explained the background (which the prosecution did not do) and presented evidence of my good character. The result of this was a fine rather than the higher level the prosecution wanted. I am extremely grateful for the professional, caring and supportive advice you gave during this ordeal. I would highly recommend Stephensons." - View from a satisfied client

"Andrea was amazing. I couldn’t thank her more for representing me in court today and getting me the right outcome I would recommend her to everyone she did an amazing job." - View from a satisfied client
