14/01/2015

If you listened to BBC Radio Essex on 9th January 2015 you may have heard Family Justice Minister Simon Hughes and an Ex Client of Essex Mediation discussing the benefits of Mediation on the Dave Monk Breakfast show.

It was great to hear the testimonial of a previous client, talking about Mediation from the other side of the table. He explained how the process had worked for him and laid out the benefits he had experienced. He was then followed by Family Justice Minister Simon Hughes who went on to talk about the legislative changes of 2014, the introduction of the compulsory Mediation information meeting and the later change to legal Aid which bought into reality free first session to both the eligible and non eligible party.

If you didn’t catch the interview you can go to listen again on the BBC Essex Radio website until the 15th January.
