About two years ago I had to unfortunately enter into a personal injury lawsuit. Stewart was put onto my case about 6 months into the lawsuit. He dove right in and was up to speed on my case and worked tirelessly on my behalf. Being in a lawsuit is never fun but Stewart truly made the process easier on me. He was professional, kind hearted, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to get to know me as a client and did whatever it took to make me comfortable. I would highly recommend Stewart.

Through a long and complicated civil case with multiple defendants, Stewart worked capably and tirelessly on my behalf. He was always there to help me understand the process, documents and strategy. Always sensitive and supportive, he helped make a frightening experience bearable. His extensive research and knowledge helped bring about a very successful resolve on my behalf.

I based my rating on effiency, promptness, translation into layman terms, punctuallity and aggressiveness. First time for me in any lengthly litigation and I found it quite overwhelming at times. Stewart had a posture that I could tell was all about us understanding what had transpired, as well as currently and what to expect. He constantly showed strength, and new what to expect and how to proceed in advance. After the case finalized, Stewart stayed on until there was no doubt in his or our mind things had completed. I believe Stewart has a very promising future in law and we thank him and wish him luck
