FMA's 25th Anniversary
The Views Of...
Justice of the Supreme Court, The Right Hon Lord Wilson of Culworth and President of the FMA
'When we face serious family problems, we still usually say to ourselves 'I must find a solicitor'. But in many (though not all) cases we would do better to say 'We must find a mediator'.
Mr Jonathan Djanogly MP
Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice
"People often find themselves involved in court actions when their disagreements might be better resolved between themselves at a much earlier stage and with a more satisfactory outcome, through processes such as mediation, rather than the 'winner takes all' approach offered by litigation".
