He is based in the firm’s Ipswich office, and helps clients with a wide range of personal injury cases and is a member of Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, the Motor Accident Solicitors Society and the Ipswich Medico-Legal Society. Stevan’s success rates and attention to client service underpin the many positive reviews he receives from his clients.”

Andrew added “During their time with us, Kay, Stevan and Hannah have each demonstrated determination, team spirit and strong leadership, with the client being central to everything that they do. They each will play an important part in the future of our firm.”
