Stewart is a specialist family lawyer who advises exclusively the most complex family law matters.
Stewart is the founder member of Staffordshire Family Law Solicitors and was the firm’s Managing Director from January 2012 to October 2021. He set Staffordshire Family Law Solicitors having identified that there was a shortage of dedicated family law experts in the area.
Whilst Stewart always try’s to resolve matters without the need for court proceedings, he is also an experienced advocate in court, for which he adopts a no-nonsense approach.
Stewart also has a keen interested in the academic side of family law and has a Master of Law (LLM) in Children Law.
Stewart had a rather unconventional entry into law having previously spent 14 years in the Royal Navy. During this time Stewart was involved in peacekeeping operations in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, and Sierra Leone so he is no stranger to challenging situations.
Stewart had never really used a solicitor until his own family situation changed and he needed the assistance of a family Solicitor. Stewart has never forgotten how important the advice and support that he got from his own solicitor was at that very emotional time and he always seeks to ensure that his client’s first contact with him is just as positive.
A father of three children, Stewart is also a keen sportsman and an active member of the community. Stewart is a former Stafford Borough Councillor, the President of Stafford and District Law Society and past Chairman of Stafford and District Round Table which raises thousands of pounds each year for local charities.
