Murdoch Mediations is unique because we guide our clients through each stage of the mediation process to reach the best possible solution for the whole family.
Australia’s court system of family law can be both costly and time-consuming. In contrast, mediation offers a neutral venue where the parties will cooperate to resolve disputes respectfully. The mediation process empowers the parties to reach an amicable agreement, creating their own mutually satisfactory solutions with the assistance of expert facilitators.
Please do not underestimate the success of mediation vs litigation when it comes to the many benefits for children and parties, especially early resolution of a relationship dispute, e.g. concerning financial outcomes and wealth preservation.
I studied a Bachelor of Laws at Bond University and was admitted to practice in both the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia as a lawyer in 1994. I have more than 25 years’ experience exclusively in family law, assisting parties in relationship breakdowns. I became a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist – Family Law in 1999 and have successfully headed a team of family lawyers since 2009 in my current role as Director of Family Law at Murdoch Lawyers.
14 years of training and background in collaborative law has helped me to assist clients in reaching agreements across a wide range of issues, without the stress and intervention of the Court system.
