From the moment I first walked through their doors until the day I received my final documents, I felt I was in caring, competent hands. My amazing Fairway mediator prepared me for what would likely be happening over the following weeks, and then skilfully guided my ex and I through the mediation process until we reached a mutually-agreed-on settlement
