ABOUT SNOOKES LEGAL SERVICES
My work in conflict resolution includes a number of areas of practice. Some of these reflect my industry experience but all of them respond well to my extensive legal training and the environment I conduct my mediations in. I engage with parties in such a way which moves away from blame and towards a calm resolution.
As a former journalist, I am well versed in the importance of accurate reporting. Not only do I mediate fall outs between media platforms and individuals, but the reputation of people and companies. I have a sympahtic understanding about the need for free and accurate reporting, while protecting the hard earned reputation of a company or person.
I have a comprehensive legal knowledge and understanding of civil law that most mediators do not. I am able to quickly identify the issues in a dispute and work towards solutions and the restoration of relationships.
CIVIL / COMMERCIAL
WORK PLACE / EMPLOYMENT
I have a keen interest in the resolution of work place disputes. I appreciate how damaging work relations can be if they break down. I have a strong focus on calming those tensions and working towards restoring those work-based relationships
As is sadly all too common nowadays, many couples end up in court, trying to fight for ‘custody’ of their pets. As a huge animal lover myself, I know how upsetting and distressing it can be when faced with the thought of losing a beloved pet that was bought or adopted in happier times. At an already distressing time when relationships have broken down, I am able to help couples and families resolve this distressing decision about ownership in a way that is the best not only for the individauls involved but for the pets as well.
When neighbours have disagreements it can often escalate into hostile and distressing events. Perhaps your neighour plays their music all night or there is a boundary dispute which has ended in the breakdown of neighbourly relationships. Whatever the disagreement, I will steady those emotions in community focussed mediations which are about restoring calm and peace for those involved and working towards those restorative goals.
