Personal Characteristics and Profile

I have been a Mediator since 1994 having gained my qualifications through the Community Justice Centre. I have been on the panel of Legal Aid since 1994 and have been conducting mediations for Legal Aid since then. I also completed a course conducted by Jennifer David . I have a private mediation practice and conduct all mediations but specifically in Family Law matters.
