Civil Roster Mediator Details

2004
N/A
From 2001 until 2012, I practiced family law working mainly in high conflict litigation. From that experience, I learned that battling matters out in court rarely results in a lasting solution. It is expensive, stressful and emotionally draining on the participants.

I had been mediating disputes since 2004, and found them to be more effective in reaching a sustainable resolution. Mediated resolutions were also significantly quicker. I completed my mediator training in 2007. I also became a Collaborative Family Lawyer in 2007. This is a practice were family dispute are resolved without any court proceedings.

After a sabbatical in 2013, I returned to practice primarily in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). I am a Law Society Accredited Mediator and Arbitrator. I recently became an Accredited Parenting Co-ordinator.

My goal is to find solutions.
