After 25 years in family law practice I set up Sarah Smith Mediation Services. I wanted to bring all those years of experience and my expertise to a wider range of clients and make a real difference to families at what can be a traumatic time.

Turned the work around quickly. Professional, knowledgeable and experienced."
Tact, diplomacy and empathy
When so many things are at stake in these negotiations tact, diplomacy and empathy are so important.
You have them all, along with an inner steely reserve. Ultimately, there has to be a sense of trust and faith in someone and I felt that with you as our mediator."
Mediation found a solution
to a sensible mediated settlement. I am particularly conscious that over a years’ worth
of sending expensive and adversarial letters between solicitors actually took us

Moving forward with positivity
Parenting is a challenge for every parent, and can be more so if parents are separated.
Your mediation has brought us together to thrash out all the emotion and frustrations that have built up,
to clear a path for a plan moving forward for our son. With a parenting plan now in place, it has been time
and energy well spent, to move forward with positivity, balance and stability for our son.”
Skill and patience
