I have been referring clients who require specialist advice outside my scope to Steve for well over 10 years. Steve provides my clients who require such advice in the areas of business law and employment law with cost effective, prompt and practical advice and pragmatic solutions.I have never had negative feedback from clients, only thanks for introducing Steve. There is never any concern that the clients will not return to our firm completely satisfied with the outcome. It is of great comfort to me that I know I can totally rely on Steve to provide my clients with the advice that is outside my areas of expertise and provide a win/win for all concerned.
