About Us

Leading Law in South Wales

Stephens Wilmot Solicitors is a leading law firm based in Pontypool, South Wales, with more than 25 years’ experience in legal services. Above all 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.

All of our solicitors are backed by a highly skilled support team who 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.

Whether you require Conveyancing, Probate or Will Writing services, choose Stephens Wilmot Solicitors for all your legal requirements to get a first rate, professional and friendly service.
