“I have been a client of Stephensons for a family matter case. Kay has supported me throughout this extremely stressful time. I am always updated with documents and have been dealt with in a sensitive and understanding manner which was important to me as I have been faced with the most difficult time in my life. I am very pleased with the service that has been provided and Kay has always been very accommodating. I honestly couldn't have asked for someone better and I am very appreciative to Kay, Janet who works with Kay, and her manager Victoria, as well as the rest of the team they all are truly and genuinely lovely people; and of course the barrister Sarah who was instructed by the firm was the absolute best and has been very committed to my case. Thank you all so much I will never forget how much you have all helped me”. - View from a satisfied client
