Stephanie is the founder of Roe Lawyers. She set up the firm over five years ago as a boutique law firm offering clients a highly tailored and personalised service. The ethos of the firm is to provide exceptional advice that is cost effective (in a competitive market place).
Stephanie is a seasoned criminal practitioner having spent over fifteen years representing clients from all backgrounds from celebrities, high net worth individuals , professionals to students and children. She prides herself in her unique approach to her cases and her ability to proactively conclude proceedings swiftly to the benefit of the client. She works tirelessly on all her cases and is always available to her clients which allows her to develop a close and successful working relationship. The same is true of her regulatory work which has developed alongside her criminal practice as there is often an overlap in the two areas.
Stephanie was called to the Bar of England and Wales before cross-qualifying to become a solicitor. She trained and worked at top ranked London criminal firms undertaking a full range of both general criminal and business crime cases as a Duty Solicitor and High Court Advocate. Prior to setting up Roe Lawyers Stephanie’s practice had largely become privately funded with cases being referred as a result of her well-deserved reputation as a top class London solicitor.
