What a difference an experienced lawyer does make. With Stephen, It was a legal experience, but it was also therapeutic in some ways because he seemed to know exactly what I was going through and his confidence gave me confidence through the process. Can't thank him enough. It's great to move on.

Stephen and his team helped my parents settle their divorce ammicably after 20 years of separation! I am glad I didn't have to mediate or take sides - really appreciate all the hard work that was put into my family's situation and that we can all put it behind us.
