About Us

Leading Law in South Wales

With more than 25 years’ experience in legal services, Stephens Wilmot Solicitors is a leading law firm based in Cwmbran, South Wales. Our experience has taught us that the key to success is putting the client first, so we have focused on simplifying our processes.

For too long clients have been expected to understand the specialised jargon that is associated with legal transactions. Whilst it is reassuring to know that your solicitor can apply the appropriate language, you should not be expected to.

Pragmatic and practical, we provide clear and concise legal advice in a language that you can understand. We offer a personable service and where possible the same solicitor will handle your case throughout.  

All of our solicitors are backed by a highly skilled support team. Whilst they concentrate on resolving the legal issue, our support team are tasked with keeping clients updated every step of the way.  Supportive, compassionate and diligent, our support team are responsible for bridging the gap between our solicitors and clients, helping us to truly make the complicated simple.

At Stephens Wilmot Solicitors we hold ourselves to a higher standard to ensure our clients are always completely satisfied. We nurture our professional relationships and continually strive to deliver excellence for our customers.

Whether you require conveyancing, probate or Will writing services, our processes are backed by the latest technology to revolutionise how we work. For a first rate, professional and friendly service, choose Stephens Wilmot Solicitors for all your legal requirements.
