“Steven was brilliant in how he conducted himself from the first time we spoke the evening prior to the hearing. He was very courteous, and made sure to make as much time for myself as possible, even out of typical working hours. He explained everything clearly and ran through possibilities - as he called it ‘giving me some homework’ for the evening before, which proved very helpful in the hearing itself. During the hearing he appeared much stronger than the opponents council, yet was incredibly confident and composed. The hearing came to 7 hours in total, and it was a tough battle. The opponents made some seemingly convincing arguments, so to ever still highlight how good of a job Steven did. I owe a lot to Steven and his expertise. He helped me finally bring a 2 year battle to justice, and for that i couldn’t recommend him enough. ”
