I appreciate that a dispute can be a very stressful time. I've worked with a wide range of people and this has helped me to build strong client skills that will support you. I am known for having an approachable, calm and engaging manner and I am able to build trust with clients quickly, and I can remain objective and focussed.
My charges are competitive and we can discuss fees to meet your budget. I'm happy to agree fixed specific fees so that you know what the costs are. For employment and civil cases, I can provide half day and other fixed time mediations which may be more cost-effective for you.”
