A Letter From Our Client

Hi Judy,

I wanted to let you know that we finally reached a settlement in our divorce. The settlement came today, while we were waiting to go in front of the judge for the final hearing.

Not surprisingly,the terms are basically what you had suggested in mediation - 20 months ago. Sadly, we spent about $250,000 on the legal process that resulted in a "settlement" that is nearly identical to what you would have completed for $5,500 to $10,000.

You were right about everything in terms of how this would play out. I appreciate very much how hard you worked to try to mediate the divorce and would be happy to let you use this letter with anyone who is thinking about whether mediation makes sense. It does.

Thank you again for all of your efforts to try help us.

Kind Regards,

John McManus
