Select review of Stephen:

“I contracted Monkhouse Law to settle a layoff dispute with my former employer. They proved to be exceptionally efficient and able. My lawyer Stephen and his associate Anessa always responded to any email query within the same day, typically within the hour. They calmly guided me through the confusing processes of settlement, severance and mediation. As I am not allowed to provide details of the settlement, I can only say that I am very happy with the fair and favourable outcome and the fact that the results were achieved quickly. Stephen and his team were able to allay my concerns and stress levels through their professional and courteous actions. Highly recommended.” – SP
