About Stewart & Stewart, P.A.

Who We Are

We are selective about the matters in which we undertake representation.  This approach is entirely different than the large majority of law firms wherein the goal is to sign up as many clients as possible.  The foundation for our approach is the belief that representing fewer clients incredibly well is better than a large caseload in which handling each individual’s case in a manner consistent with our standards would not be possible.  Focusing on the client’s goals to achieve the best outcome is of primary importance.  We gauge our success based on how well we’re handling each individual client’s matter.  The number of open and active cases is not a factor in determining success.  Doing everything possible for every client is the key to success.  People know when you care about their concerns.  They know when their attorney is not responsive, sympathetic, does not truly understand their needs, does not keep them informed of the status of their matter, does not discuss options with them, and otherwise lacks the requisite concern.  We proudly make every effort to avoid ever leaving any client with that impression.
