A testimonial from an experienced London Solicitor in a typical case:

"It was definitely worth missing a night out to ensure that this case was put to bed before the sons followed in their father's footsteps" [ vexatious litigant and bankrupt leading to "the cloud of litigation which has hung over this family for the last 20 years" ].

"My client has asked me to pass on his immense gratitude to you for the mediation services you provided last Friday. This mediation was always going to be extremely difficult, the parties having adopted entrenched positions and the hostilities having reached mutual destruction proportions.

There is no doubt that your knowledge and expertise in the matters in question were invaluable. However, perhaps more important was the manner in which you conducted the shuttle diplomacy resulting in both parties reaching a mutually acceptable compromise; which the legal representatives may have doubted was possible.

I have experienced a number of mediations and, without a doubt, your approach on this difficult matter was faultless. Your patience and energy, even at midnight, was very much appreciated."

Golden Rule: avoid Fridays if at all possible.
