Stephen brings many years of experience as a solicitor and an advocate to the Perth office of Armstrong Legal. Stephen has also practised extensively in Victoria and appeared in courts in New South Wales and Queensland.
Stephen has represented clients in all matters from homicides to traffic matters. He has over ten years' experience appearing in Magistrates, District/ County and Supreme courts. Stephen has appeared in many contested matters as well as appearing for clients who are entering pleas of guilty to charges against them and making bail and other necessary applications.
Stephen has extensive knowledge of all facets of criminal law which has been further enhanced through experience as a prosecutor prior to commencing defence work. He has successfully conducted many contested hearings for clients in relation to traffic matters – including drink and drug driving matters – as well as more serious matters such as assaults, drug offences, stealing, sexual matters and fraud-related matters.
Stephen is a skilled and persuasive advocate who has appeared in hundreds of contested hearings. He is a passionate solicitor who works very hard to ensure that his clients receive the best result possible by carefully scrutinising everything he deals with. He takes great care in preparing and presenting pleas in mitigation when appearing for clients who are pleading guilty to ensure the outcome they receive is the most appropriate to their unique circumstances.
I was faced with the worst possible scenario when I committed something that is so unlike me but carried a hefty penalty. From the moment I engaged Stephen Preece he put my mid at ease from that initial phone call and made me feel relaxed through the whole process.
Stephen kept me informed at all times and the way he handled the matter in court on the day was superb. He fought hard for me and I was happy with the result.
I will never be needing Stephen in the future, but should I, he will be the first person I call. I would recommend him to every one that ever needs representation.
Armstrong Legal were given 2 days to review a case that could have seen me inside for 7 years. I was totally innocent and wrongly accused. When you walk away from court a FREE man and look back at the man who just secured your freedom. THANKYOU seems so inadequate. But that is all I could say.
After finding myself in an awful situation and not being able to cope, Armstrong Legal was able to explain everything that I needed to know in plain English and took care of all matters relating to court so that I didn’t need to worry. Truly professional and supportive through my whole case.
Stephen took our matter very seriously and supported my children and I with such pride and enormous support. Stephen and his team had always been so professional and caring! Thank you Stephen for getting the very best outcome we can now get on with our lives!
I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer on my matter. He answered all my questions even when I constantly repeated myself when fear and anxiety took over me. He's generally a down to earth bloke and really easy to talk to and relate with. I felt comfortable and confident having him on my matter in court and he turned a rather (knifes edge) situation into a great outcome for me and my children. I can't thank you enough Stephen. Your seriously a legend I will recommend you to anyone needing a criminal lawyer.
Stephen took my call when I was extremely distressed late in the evening after being arrested ( something that I had never had happen before for something I felt I was innocent of ) and guided me and from there, I felt the support staff and his care really helped.
Matter was handled professionally. Was pleased with the effort and time put in for a favourable result.
Stephen handled my legal matter with a great deal of professionalism and attention to detail. He always responded to any concerns or requests I had in a timely fashion and made me feel as though my case was important and would be handled with respect and efficiency.
Steve took the time to make sure that all my concerns were dealt with and that everything was in place before appearing in court. The outstanding result that was achieved, which included a spent conviction being granted, is testament to his thorough and thoughtful approach to his work.
I am so grateful to him for being there for me through the most stressful ordeal of my life. I can’t imagine finding another solicitor of his level of skill who is as sympathetic, understanding and reassuring as Stephen was from the moment we first spoke on the phone to the final outcome in court!
I would not hesitate in recommending Stephen Preece and Armstrong Legal to anyone in need of legal counsel and feel blessed to have been represented by them for my legal matter.
Stephen was amazing! We were well informed in all aspects and he gave sound advice! Best possible outcome on the case. Seeking a lawyer was very daunting but Stephen made the experience a lot easier. We were comfortable with his expertise and certainly impressed with how the matter was dealt with. That man deserves a promotion! Thanks again Stephen.
Stephen Preece took the matter very seriously and achieved a top result. I can finally get on with my life. Thanks Stephen for all your help.
My case was a sudden shock and I felt helpless. I reached out to Armstrong Legal and within minutes Stephen Preece called me. Everything was done over the phone and he travelled quite far for my case. He went above and beyond and he presented very neat tidy and professional at court. The outcome was exactly as he predicted and I am so greatful I had him on my case. Now I can finally move on a free woman thankyou Stephen.
