Fantastic outcome. Thank you very much for your hard effort and great result. I am glad that after almost 6 years there is movement in a positive direction where the Estate is concerned.

Thankful for the no nonsense approach. Once all the details of the case were laid out I was encouraged to not proceed as it would not achieve a better outcome.

Nigel Siegwart has been working through a mediation process with our family. I have found him to be efficient and well prepared. He is the most competent lawyer I have had anything to do with throughout this mess. I really hope things can be resolved. Thank you.

Hi Nigel, a quick note to express my gratitude and appreciation for the manner in which you have provided support to us over the last 6 months. I also add my thanks for the way you managed the mediation process and acknowledge that your staying the whole day enabled us to get a signed agreement at day’s end. Seeing your attention to process and commitment to your clients in a reasoned and fair manner evidenced to me that, regardless of the legal fine print, having the executors supported by competent counsel is critical to the outcome that was achieved yesterday. You may also be interested to know that, after yesterday’s proceedings, some of the siblings that had been questioning your suggestions and approach prior to the mediation have been singing your praises today!
