What People Are Saying About Joe

I would like to thank you so much for your assistance in our matter.
From the initial contact via email I was confident we had made the right choice.
Your communication was excellent and when we spoke on the phone I was felt comfortable discussing the matter with you.
Your knowledge and experience is greatly valued and the preparation of documents provided prior to the hearing were very detailed and showed a greater understanding of our positions. 
Throughout the entire mediation process you continued to check how I was coping and if I was OK. At no time did I feel uncomfortable and your assurance was greatly appreciated. 
Thank you again so much for your time and I highly recommend your services.

Let me thank you sincerely for the role you played today, I really respect your experience, guidance and your professionalism throughout your handling of our case. I felt as though you made every attempt to explain to me the position that we are in an effective and concise manner, it gave me much clarity about the proceedings. Throughout the day, you were very fair and handled the days affairs in a manner that alleviated the concerns I had about participating in mediation for the first time and you made a concerted effort to bridge the gap between the two parties.

Again, I would like to sincerely thank you for you work and dilligence in preparing to mediate in our case and your sincere effort and endeavours during the meeting itself. It’s my great desire that our case can move forward from this point onwards in a more positive direction and focus on the most important things in our lives, which is caring for and raising those two little boys

The pre-mediation…I found to be extremely helpful.  After listening to you, it made me think differently…We were able to have a discussion prior to the mediation which I believe enabled the matter to be settled.
Thank you for opening my eyes to look at the settlement option through different lenses.

As always, the parties were in very capable and caring hand. I appreciate your time and patience today


It was a delight to work with you, and I greatly appreciate all your assistance today notwithstanding the way it ended. Your guidance throughout the process and ability to reality test proposals and scenarios I found extremely beneficial, particularly coming from someone of your experience and background.

I hope to work with you soon!


Joe, I thought the manner in which you conducted the mediation session, and indeed your whole mediation process, was excellent. The pre-mediation one-on-one session put me at ease and I felt instantly safe in your experienced hands in family court matters. Having never been in this situation before, I feared the worse and was very happy this did not eventuate. Your positive personal interaction-style during the mediation was reassuring, and I felt my views were listened to and respected.

 Thank you again…and dare I say, you are in the ‘right role’ being a mediator Joe, and I am sure many of your previous clients would agree with me.

Less stress . No Court . No hefty legal fees
