Stephen completed his law degree at Newcastle University in 2006, attaining Honours, before proceeding to the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, Bloomsbury.

On joining Samuel Phillips Law Firm, Stephen said:

“I was thrilled to be approached by Samuel Phillips Law Firm having built my reputation in the northeast. The firm undertakes a high quality of work and has been established in Newcastle city centre for many years. It particularly appealed to me to be working with such ambitious and knowledgeable lawyers. There is an ethos of a firm yet friendly and empathetic approach which I subscribe to, as clients often see a solicitor during the most challenging times.”

Stephen advises clients from all walks of life, including those who are just starting to think about their future as well as established high net worth individuals. He has been commended for his pragmatic approach and robust argument. Stephen builds an excellent rapport with his clients who have said: “Stephen is a forward-thinking solicitor who believes in a round-the-table approach with all parties involved. He is one of the few solicitors I have ever known that actually listens and gives honest advice.”

In his free time, Stephen enjoys football, which he played at university level, and cricket, having held the position of Captain at Bamburgh Castle Cricket Club from 2004 to 2013. Stephen is also the former President of his local residents’ association and is a trustee of two regional and well-known young people’s charities.
