I specialise in recovering damages on behalf of clients injured as a result of accidents at work or working conditions, road traffic accidents and accidents in public places, such as highways, shops and restaurants. I also act for bereaved families who have tragically lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence.
I get immense professional satisfaction from helping injured clients receive the medical treatment and any vocational support they need as a result of their injuries – in addition to all important financial compensation for their pain and suffering.
I am an Associate Solicitor and previously worked for a Suffolk law firm for 10 years before joining Gotelee. Therefore, I have a lot of experience of successfully representing local clients injured through no fault of their own.
I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and Gotelee is a member of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society. I am also a member of the Ipswich Medico-Legal Society.
I have work as a volunteer at the Ipswich & Suffolk Council for Racial Equality Law Centre and also used to be a Public Event First Aider for British Red Cross.
I represent individuals who have been injured as a result of the negligence of other individuals, companies, councils or institutes.
I believe that the role of a Claimant’s solicitor makes a real difference – helping the ‘little guy’ to win against insurers, businesses and public bodies that often make life very difficult for individuals. I am firmly committed to giving proper and prompt legal advice that will help my clients through very difficult times. I ensure my clients receive a friendly and professional service, whether face-to-face or by telephone, at all times. I pride myself on returning client calls as quickly as possible.
I usually act for clients on a No Win No Fee basis and I am always happy to provide an initial assessment of a case for free and without obligation, at any of our offices.
“I very much appreciate the skilled way in which Stevan Stratton managed to combine a personal but highly professional approach in all communications.”
“I would really like to thank you for all your work dealing with my case and supporting me through it all. You have been most welcoming and professional”
“Excellent service throughout the case. Stevan was very professional and explained issues if I did not understand them. Stevan worked very hard to resolve my case and always kept me updated. I am very happy with the settlement and would like to say thank you to Stevan and your staff for helping win my case and would definitely recommend your services to family and friends.”
“Stevan, thank you so much for your amazing work. You have been so friendly, attentive and helpful and I feel very happy that you were able to fight my case for me!”
“We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and sticking with us and helping little Flo get something for all she has been through so that one day she can use the money to see the world or help her onto the property ladder. You have been amazing and showed a lot of patience when dealing with this case and all for no reward for yourself, thank you.” – Dean Kentfield

I grew up near Hadleigh and have lived in Ipswich for the last 15 years. I love playing and watching football and also enjoy playing the guitar and piano and try to fit in the odd ‘open mic’ performance when I can.
