"Thank you so much for your calm headed approach to yesterday. I’m sure that was one of your toughest mediations. At the end of the night, Jo and I said it was your knowledge of boundaries, features and what is really relevant in a mediation that allowed a conclusion to be reached. We now have a settlement and can move on with our lives." May 2013

We would highly recommend him. " December 2012

I mentioned to him at the beginning that he was not going to succeed mediating with the other party but I was proved wrong as he was able to do so and in a timely manner. His mediation skills and knowledge of the process was very impressive.'' October 2011
''A very good service and very professional, shame a settlement could not be reached.'' August 2011
