Stephen approaches mediation, not from a lawyer’s perspective but as a problem that it is his role to help the parties try to resolve. He will do all he can to help the parties to reach agreement. Stephen believes that he brings to the process his personal conviction in the value of mediation, his enthusiasm for what he expects it to achieve, and his never-ending enjoyment in meeting new people. He does his best not only to convey these views but to help everyone have fun!
