What our clients say

"Stephensons helped me with a transfer of equity where my ex-partner was buying me out from the property. I was impressed with the level of service I received. They reviewed documentation quickly, spotted some errors made by the other solicitors and made sure these were corrected. They explained everything clearly to me. They were also great at keeping me up-to-date and chasing the other solicitors who were involved. Thank you to Natalie and Gillian for making this such a smooth and professional experience." - View from a satisfied client

"Stephensons solicitors, and particularly the paralegal working on my case (tenant eviction), are very skilled and professional. Every eventuality was covered in the eviction of a difficult tenant who tried to use every trick in the book to avoid paying rent." - View from a satisfied client
