A lawyer is sometimes useful as a mediator because he or she can firmly negotiate without the counter-productive anger and emotion that the aggrieved party may bring to the discussions but as previously said, too expensive in this case. You can take the role yourself, as it seems you already have, just be firm, cool, polite AND relentless and I think you will do alright. Keep us posted
