WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Stephen, it has been a long road over the last couple of years working on compiling this schedule, but you have done a great job and the final result is a credit to you.

I have been with the Foot Anstey Group since I qualified in 1980, dealing initially with many different types of litigation and increasingly specialising in personal injury and clinical negligence work.  I became a partner in the firm in 1989, becoming a consultant in 2001. 

I have 35 years’ litigation experience, specialising in serious injury claims including clinical negligence cases.  I also have experience of contentious probate claims and commercial litigation. 

I am a former Chairman and founding member of the Plymouth Civil Litigation Association and a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers since about 1990.

Other Information
