About Witness Drafting Services

Witness Drafting Services is operated by Michael Stevenson, a solicitor (non-practicing), with extensive knowledge.

 

Background

I have the curiosity to find out why an accident or exposure happened on a deeper level leading to me being inquisitive with the witness in the search for the truth and to be able to piece together the abstract pieces of the ‘jigsaw’ in the statement.

With nearly two decades working in private practice, and the insurance industry, with twelve of those years as a solicitor, I have drafted over 3000 witness statements in a variety of different types of accident claims.

I adopt an old school approach to perfecting what I do to make sure that I am entirely satisfied with the statement I am sending to my client. 

This coupled with not overloading myself with work means that I have the capacity to provide my service within the time constraints provided by those instructing me.

I am a perfectionist willing to take the time to ensure that I understand what I am doing and to ensure that it is done correctly and in an easy to read style.   

I have been described as ‘an independent third person, who can look at the claim objectively.'

This means that those who instruct me find they have confidence in the work that I do."

 

Assurance

“I guarantee that you will have an individual service when taking witness statements as only I will be personally speaking to your client and witnesses.”

“In addition, my experience will assist in putting your client at ease with the assurance that their statement is being prepared by a complete professional.”

"I ensure the highest levels of confidentiality by not disclosing who I work with."

 

 

About Michael Stevenson

"Family life is important to me. One of the key benefits of being self-employed is working when it suits the business and being with the family when it matters. I am married and I have three young daughters all under the age of seven and like any Father they are the apple of my eye."

''I am a keen mountain biker and have been for many years. I have competed on a number of occasions, with varying degrees of success, but for me it is all about the fun and the friendships made.''

''Due to family life, these days I spend a lot more of my spare time riding my road bike and gravel bike. The opportunity to be able to ride right from the front door certainly has its appeal and makes it more accessible.''

''My personal goal is to cycle from Lands’ End to John O’Groats for a Motor Neurone Disease charity.''
