Senior Associate

Steven is a well rounded solicitor who is well versed in private client matters on both sides of the fence (both non-contentious and disputed estates).  His technical ability in wills and probate along with his years of experience in dealing with complex family dynamics, means that Steven is well positioned to act for clients where a dispute arises after the death of a family member.   



  • Contentious Probate
  • Private Client


  • Successfully defended an Inheritance Act claim against an elderly client that was made by an estranged (and difficult) step-child.  
  • Brought action against executors whose relationship with beneficiaries had broken down completely.  An inventory application was made that then opened dialogue between the parties who then reached agreement without the need for court proceedings. 
  • Issued TOLATA claims against disgruntled beneficiaries who were living in their parents property and refused to sell.  
  • Acted for numerous beneficiaries of wills who have had difficulty realising their share of the estate.
  • Defended and made claims for family members who have not been included in the will of their deceased family members.
  • Handled claims against solicitors who have either drafted wills badly or failed to act on instruction before their client died.
