"Steve was instrumental in taking my case in the most appropriate direction and provided sound advice and explanations to my questions. Steve was also very thoughtful of the fact that I wanted to minimise costs and do as much of the 'grunt' work as possible, which was really appreciated. I would definitely recommend his services to others."
"Steve was very professional and knowledgeable. I cannot think of anything that he could have done better."
