Stephen believes that the best results are obtained when a thorough strategic plan is developed at the beginning of any case, and then executed in a manner few are able to do. Whether this is through aggressive negotiation, litigation, or even by pushing proceedings through trial, Stephen will ensure that the strategy best fits your case, and is explained to you early in the case.
