Mediation Approach & Philosophy

Joanne Law is a strong supporter of self-determination by clients. After all they are the ones who have to live with the resolution. She works cooperatively with lawyers to ensure that clients are informed about their legal rights and responsibilities but only uses lawyer assisted mediation for very vulnerable clients. This is because resolving disputes isn't just about legal rights, it is about what matters to the people involved. I see mediation as an intervention that has the potential to shift the relationship dynamic away from unresolved disputes and conflict towards one where issues are able to be resolved and conflict avoided in the future.

Representative Cases Handled as a Mediator

Family Dispute Resolution for property cases including complex high net worth property matters. Family Dispute Resolution for finance cases helping couples to work out interim financial arrangements. Family Dispute Resolution for parenting cases helping parents to reach initial and ongoing parenting agreements, to review and update parenting agreements. Family Dispute Resolution for parenting cases helping parents to negotiate Parenting Plans to replace the terms of Court Orders. Workplace mediation with teams and individuals. Community Mediation

Complex Case Experience

The main work I do is family dispute resolution with couples however I can work with family groups if their cultural or individual family situation requires family led decision making rather than parent led.  

The main complexity that I deal with is related to power imbalances and a history of family violence where I provide modified processes (Mediator Facilitated Negotiation) and Video Shuttle Mediation to ensure that issues can be resolved without fear and coercion.

Fees

$275 per person per hour base fee. Discounted rates $198 per hour when working for the not-for-profit Interact Support with lower income earners. Hardship cases "Pay what you can now, Pay if you can later" are available through Interact Support.
