Stewart Irvine was incredibly helpful, friendly and understanding of a difficult family situation. Stewart listened to my wishes and concerns and was as passionate. On a personal level, I am really interested in law and Stewart spent time explaining how the law works and why we were taking actions in the way we were. I really appreciated this approach and this allowed me to feel confident in the decisions that I was making. I'm really grateful to Stewart for all his guidance and support. I truly felt that Stewart had our best interests at heart throughout the process.
