Mediation

Orkney Mediation Services

Herd Law Practice are now pleased to provide Mediation Services to Orkney. Are you:-

Looking for an effective solution to your separation/divorce/children/employment or civil cases
Would you like to avoid the expense and stress of going to Court
Are you interested in resolving conflicts without large legal bills and by reducing acrimony

No matter what the problem, it is likely you will benefit from mediating your problems rather than spending months and possibly years in the Court arena.

Herd Law Practice can now offer mediation by our Legal Mediator Georgette Herd.

Georgette is registered as a comprehensive accredited legal mediator and approved by the Law Society of Scotland.

She has undergone the necessary training and is a member of the Scottish Mediation Network.

The Law is changing and it is likely that mediation will be a process parties will be encouraged to enter into.

Mediation has a success rate of more than 75%.

Mediation helps parties realise what they can realistically expect from the Court process and helps them explore whether there is any common ground for settlement.

If you are interested in attending for mediation please contact the Herd Law Practice direct on 01856 870787 or email to mediation@herdlaw.com for an intake meeting.

At present these meetings are free of charge.
Legal Aid can be available for mediation in separation situations.

If you would like to have “all issues” mediation, with a specialist family mediator, together with a legal mediator, please contact Relationship Scotland Orkney for an intake meeting 01856 877750.

Please note if you attend with our firm for mediation and you are not able to achieve a settlement, we promise that we will not act for either party where there is a conflict of interest arising.
