  • Overview

    How mediation lawyers can help

    Mediation lawyers are trained to act impartially and do not seek to apportion blame. Mediation is not marriage guidance nor couple counselling.

    Mediation can provide real benefits in appropriate cases. It reduces tension and hostility and helps couples make their own informed decisions about their futures. Mediation plays an important role in assisting families to address and resolve the issues which arise from separation and divorce.

    Parties are free to take legal advice at the same time as the mediation process, although their legal advisers do not attend the mediation sessions with them.

    Our mediation lawyers

    There are two trained mediators in our team Kirstie Law and Desmond O'Donnoll.  They will be happy to assist you to hopefully reach agreement with regard to children and/or financial issues.  As mediators they will be impartial and will give you both information about the law jointly so that you can make informed decisions.

    If you have reached a financial agreement with a mediator at another firm and want this converted into a binding order within the divorce proceedings (which is advisable)  any of our family lawyers can draft the necessary paperwork to convert your agreement into a legally binding document.

    For further information please contact one of the team below.

Well-considered advice and presents a realistic picture of the likely outcome.

What a stark contrast to my other experience of mediation, it certainly pays off to have everyone in the room at the same time rather than hearing two separate stories and trying to work out where the truth lies.

You are a credit to your profession and I commend you.

Sound, effective and reliable mediators.
