Stephen has a wealth of experience in advising on all aspects of private client law and has been doing so since 2004. He excels in the following areas:
- He is able to navigate individuals through increasingly complex issues in relation to tax, trust and estate planning in an understandable and informative way.
- Stephen is recognised for his personal approach and has the ability to make you feel at ease and confident that he will see the ‘bigger picture’ and provide you with a first class service.
- He never underestimates the importance of ‘getting to know the client’ to offer truly bespoke advice.
Stephen has been a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) since 2008.
Stephen is a keen sportsman and enjoys most sports, especially football - although some would argue that this is debatable what with him being an Arsenal fan!
Stephen lives in a village near Bedford and in a world of pink with two young daughters.
He loves to travel (well he used to - see above!) and is a qualified scuba diver as well as having skydived when he backpacked along the East Coast of Australia all those years ago. Yes really - he’s got the DVD to prove it!
Back in 1984 my husband & I came to you when you were Leeds Day in Hitchin Street Biggleswade to make our wills. We got very good service then. Now I have to update my will with you and the service is still of high quality. The friendliness & helpfulness hasn't changed. Thank you very much.
This is a highly professional legal practice which puts the needs of the client first. It combines this professionalism with a family-friendly approach.
