Senior Mediator



David graduated from Law School at Notre Dame University where he also won a prize for excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution. David studied and has a special interest in Family Law that has motivated him to obtain further qualifications with a Graduate Diploma in Family Dispute Resolution. David is a Nationally Accredited Mediator NMAS and is registered with the Attorney General’s Department as a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP). David is authorised under the Family Law Act to issue Section 60I Certificates that will allow progression to Court when Family Dispute Resolution is either unsuccessful or not appropriate. David is also a Practitioner member of the LEADR and IAMA Association of Dispute Resolvers.

At a personal level, David has spent some years as a single parent and understands the challenges faced by both parties when separation occurs. He realizes that the key to Mediation is to be able to listen to his client’s needs, and then to facilitate options that allow for those needs to be met. He encourages calm and open discussions allowing both parties to be heard in a completely non-judgmental and constructive manner. David will facilitate good communication where it may have been lacking previously and will always advocate in your children’s best interest, which is required by Law and appreciated by every parent.
