About Switalskis

About Switalskis

Switalskis, established by Stephen Switalski in 1993, began with a focus on child care law and criminal law from a single office in Wakefield. Since then, we have expanded to 11 locations, employing more than 380 staff who provide a wide array of specialist legal services.

Despite our growth, Switalskis remains committed to first-class client care. We strive to ensure positive outcomes for every client. We’re known for our caring, knowledgeable and tenacious approach to handling complex cases.

Our Story

Stephen Switalski was unique and memorable. His compassion, character and business acumen made him a natural communicator and an outstanding lawyer.

He believed passionately that everyone should be treated fairly, whatever their background or circumstance. In 1993, he set up a law firm with the purpose of providing help and advice, and for delivering the very best outcomes for all.

Switalskis today continues to be totally committed to that mission. We share Stephen's values of support, inclusivity, family and being commercially minded. This guides us to deliver the finest legal services for the world we live in. Acting for both individuals and companies, we provide a broad range of support, helping all clients in our own unique way.

We celebrate our founder as a beacon, and his values still guide the firm today. He remains a presence and we are proud and determined to continue the work he was so committed to delivering.
