Best in the Upstate!
Mr. Stewart has assisted me in several potentially tricky issues. Brilliant, witty and efficient, he cuts through red tape smoothly and efficiently. Would not hesitate to patronize his services in the future. HIGHLY recommended.

Reviewing and Rating My Attorney, C. Richard Stewart
Mr. Steward came to me highly recommended as the man to handle a law suit made necessary by a lessee who was derelict in paying his 1. taxes and 2. insurance, both of which were agreed to in his leases, and were a year in arrears. We found Mr. Stewart to be personable, knowledgeable, helpful, effective, and above and beyond the call of duty. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others; and, I would/will use him again. He's a nice guy, and a gentleman of "the old school".

legal issue on property owned out of state
I recently recommended Mr. Stewart to my father-in-law. He owns property in another state, and had concerns about it. Mr. Stewart was able to speak to him, and give him great advice. Due to the fact the property was located in another state, Mr. Stewart was not able to personally handle the situation but he provided all the information necessary for him to get the problem handled. Thank you Mr. Stewart for your help!

Richard Stewart Attorney Review
I have used "Dick" Stewart for several different legal issues, both personal and business, and I was very pleased with the quality and timeliness of those services. Dick is a down-to-earth gentleman who is easy to talk to, and comfortable to work with. His fees were reasonable for the work he did, and I consider him my go to guy.
