Stephen has worked in law since 1982, qualifying as a Solicitor in September 1993. He has accumulated a wide and in-depth knowledge of a number of areas of the law during his career but latterly has specialised exclusively in Family Law.
He works primarily in relation to relationship breakdown for married and unmarried couples, property and finance arising from that and, in respect of child-related matters too. Also he assists parties in making formal and, as legally binding as possible, their optimum arrangements for property, finance or otherwise at the beginning of their relationships (whether marriages, civil partnerships or informal couples) in case of later difficulty.
Stephen is a keen (but very amateur!) cyclist having completed the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton charity bike ride a total of five times. He also loves the outdoors generally and is very keen on country walking with family and with friends. His interests include the arts and in particular, prints, paintings and drawings, sculpture and literature. Stephen is very, very keen on music and enjoys a wide variety of genres.He enjoys nothing better than live performances in London and Brighton (amongst others) until the pandemic put a (hopefully strictly temporary) halt to that. He is interested in history, architecture and particularly old buildings. He’s a National Trust member. Sport is a passion including rugby, cricket and football. Stephen is married, has 3 children including two stepchildren, and thus has also accumulated six grandchildren with another to come early in 2021!
