Feedback received:

"It was particularly helpful to know that you that you understood the subject matter of the dispute so well, and I shall have no hesitation in using your services again, particularly in a building or land related case" - solicitor, building contract dispute.

 "It was the first time I had used Mr. Hooper; there was a general consensus in our room that he was excellent." - solicitor, landlord and tenant dispute.

"I have never experienced an opponent quite as difficult and confrontational as our opponent in this case, and I thought David dealt with [   ] very well indeed. I don't think he could have done more to facilitate a settlement." - solicitor, boundary dispute.

"This was a very positive experience for us and we would definitely use David Hooper again." - solicitor, commercial dispute.

"Mr Hooper was an excellent and effective mediator. He has completely overcome my bias in favour of lawyer mediators".

"I was impressed with his grasp of the problems along with his calm manner. Although strictly neutral, I felt he understood our worries and feelings."

"You were sympathetic to the personalities involved and  handled the whole process with great skill and sensitivity in order to reach a very satisfactory settlement for both parties."
