"When you have a small business, every other day there is some kind of business problem to worry you and as the owner all the worry and responsibility is on you. The only time I don't feel that is when there is a legal matter, over the last twenty years if I have any legal worry I call Stephen, I off load the matters to him, and I am sure he will deal with it and I do not have to worry. It is great to have the support of Stephen and his firm. I have recommended family and friends to him and will continue to do so."
