He’s a welcome fit for a firm that is proud of its trade union heritage and pursuit of justice for the individual.”
Julie added: “Our growing team underlines our expansion across all areas of personal injury litigation. We look forward to Stephen contributing to the continued success of Allan McDougall Solicitors and achievement of results for our clients over the coming years."
