"I wish I had known about Stone King during my divorce. Mediation during my divorce was useless. Stone King made me feel for the first time I was being treated fairly. It was impossible to have any mediation with my ex husband until Stone King. They are brilliant and look at both sides in an objective way. It's a unique way of doing mediation that actually works."
