Testimonials
“Stephen Bennett … made a stressful situation as straight forward as it could be, bringing the case to a swift and very satisfactory conclusion. I found Stephen to be very accessible, calming through his authority and expertise and empathetic. He was thorough and patient in explanations of the options available to us, whilst behind the scenes he worked quickly and effectively on our behalf. I would wholeheartedly recommend Stephen for legal representation.” Anon

“From the first meeting with Stephen we realised the seriousness of the allegation and without any hesitation Stephen explained to us clearly and concisely all the avenues this allegation could take and where we should go from there.  He laid out his fees and we were so impressed with his experience, presentation and courteous manner we had no hesitation in taking him on as our Solicitor.  Stephen was always there to answer our queries quickly, reassuringly and in a courteous manner.  He dealt with the Police and generally took control of the situation for us which made an extremely stressful time much more easier to cope with …we felt we could rely on him to resolve the matter and see that justice was done for our Son. The matter reached a successful conclusion thanks to Stephen and his professional manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen to anyone requiring a Solicitor to assist in a case such as ours.”  Anon

“Thank you for your excellent service, we hope that we never need you again! But will be back with the knowledge of your efficiency if it does ever become necessary.” Anon

“Stephen prepared a vast £100 million fraud defence case meticulously. The trial lasted six months and he attended to the case and advised the client clearly and astutely throughout that period. His intellect is first rate and his command of his cases is unsurpassed. In another case involving a death, his discretion and sympathetic assistance to the client and their family whilst providing first rate legal expertise to the case was as reassuring as it was commendable. As a QC I would trust him for a second opinion on case tactics in the knowledge that he would provide dependable, honest and clear judgement. His experience in his field is long and extensive and others in the business hold him in the highest esteem. He has a superb track record of representing people charged with serious sexual offences. His results are exceptional. He would be my first choice of solicitor if anyone close to me was ever in need of legal advice and representation.” A LinkedIn recommendation from Justin Rouse QC.
