"Many thanks for your tremendous assistance at what proved to be a long and difficult day mediating.  I was most impressed by your willingness to engage with my clients and to reach a settlement despite the apparent intransigence of the parties.  I believe that without your contribution my clients would have spent thousands at trial unnecessarily and confirms my view that mediation, particularly when a skillful mediator like yourself is involved, is often the best way of settling a dispute."  Barrett & Thompson Solicitors

"Michael was very good and we were very happy with the result achieved, this meant the client did not have to go to the expense of instructing us to represent him on a two-day trial which he could ill afford." Lovell Chohan Solicitors
