Service and Support
Steven’s approach is always to achieve everything possible without the need of a hard, acrimonious and potentially expensive court case. He achieves this by anticipating the likely hurdles faced by those he assists and firmly believes that most of the work in a court case is done outside the court room.
With Steven assisting you, you will have someone who knows what is liable to work and what doesn’t but also someone who understands how difficult it can be to go through the court process.
Steven has worked in courts around England and Wales including the Royal Courts of Justice in London, assisting people in Child Matters but also in divorce and finance. His experience has been gained whilst assisting services users as a volunteer for Families Need Fathers and in many cases that occupy him on a full time basis.
