What our clients say
"With reference to recent issue I had with my (now former) employer, I contacted Stephensons LLP and initially spoke with Joanne Ribchester (who took all relevant case background and details) and in turn referred this matter to Vicki Fagan.
Vicki was very informative and gave good advice and provided an excellent case and articulate argument, that resulted in a favourable dispute resolution.
I would highly recommend both Vicki, Joanne and Stephensons LLP as an excellent law firm, as this whole case was investigated, prepared, put forward and resolved (won!) and settled in 2 months."
“You acted on our behalf back in January to complete the sale of our property in Preston. We are now looking to purchase a property and would like your assistance. I have made an initial enquiry with the central team but wanted to contact you directly as we had been very pleased with the efficiency of you and your team the previous sale”.
“I greatly appreciate your prompt responses, support and level of customer service over the last few weeks. Please feel free to pass my great satisfaction on to your management that you have provided with your support”.
