Very valuable service on many levels. Highly recommended.
Great experience, talked about real issues for the first time in years. Thank you.
[Our mediator] was empathetic, insightful, helpful, creative, facilitated a fair and balanced solution that was in the best interest of the children.
Our assigned mediator was particularly effective in helping reach a solution.
What lawyers say
We had an extremely positive experience in mediation today… We were addressing child and spousal support and equalization. The support issues were difficult… we were not optimistic going in. In his quiet manner, with the right degree of humour, our mediator got us through to a resolution on all the issues. Everyone left with smiles!
I want to thank [our mediator] and [the intern] for conducting the mediation session so wonderfully. Things have gotten better between the two of us since we filed for divorce. We are feeling a relief that comes after being on battle ground so long. Now we can relax and move forward.
