"we came across Stephens Scown by chance, we had no prior knowledge of the firm. I can say in all honestly, I do not know how we would have got through this dispute without Ben and I make no apologies for writing from the heart.

Ben is an exemplary solicitor for Stephens Scown with his humanitarian and down to earth approach, he really has been an absolute saviour for me throughout this dispute. Moreover, his knowledge and expertise has been second to none and believe me when I say, our neighbour was certainly not easy to deal with… Stephens Scown are, without doubt, a cut above the rest, it is clear that you care about people, and nothing quite beats integrity and reputation, not even money!" - Disputes client August 2018
