Stephen joined the firm in 1982, and then spent a short period working in Robertson Neilson before re-joining Carruthers Gemmill as a partner. He is accordingly steeped in the tradition of giving a good personal service to clients in today's busy market-place. Stephen was educated at Dumbarton Academy and the University of Glasgow.
Whilst he is very experienced in all conveyancing matters, his specialisation is matrimonial work and so the firm offers a comprehensive service to clients, no matter what may befall them. Stephen makes every effort to conciliate and repair situations which might otherwise spiral out of control. He regards court action as a last resort.
Stephen also represents a large number of lottery winners and provides tailored advice to those lucky enough to have chosen the right numbers.
Stephen is an extremely well-kent face further down the river, being a regular performer with the Dumbarton People's Theatre and a committed follower of, and attendee at, Dumbarton FC matches.
