If you want the most experienced, highly qualified team in Essex then you’ve come to the right place.

Family breakdown can be costly in many ways. It can cause financial challenges, lead to hostile court battles, and have a lasting effect on the emotional wellbeing of any children involved. But a good family mediator like Leonard Gray can help couples sort out their problems without ending up in court.

You can meet with us for free, and we urge you to do this before you consider any other mediation practice.

Our credentials are second to none

You should be aware that private clients can be seen by family mediators with as little as 10 hours experience. At Leonard Gray, our mediation practice is led by Richard Randall, who has considerable years’ qualified experience in family law and mediation. He is an assessor for the Law Society Mediation Panel.

Lawyer-led mediation gets better results

Relationship break down has both difficult emotional and legal elements. At Leonard Gray we combine years of practical mediation experience, with an expert knowledge of the law. This means that we are simply better equipped to deal promptly with all the issues that can arise and are proud of our 95% success rate.

Always cheaper than the court and 100% free for legal aid clients

Mediation is quicker, cheaper and more dignified than going to Court. Your first meeting with us is always free, and the whole mediation process is completely free if you qualify for legal aid.  You do not have to pay a penny and you never have to pay it back.
