I am a panel member with the Workers Compensation Commission (the WCC) for seven years. In 2016, I was the number one performing mediator. Performance is primarily assessed by settlements achieved. I have nearly a 90% settlement rate for Family Law disputes and nearly an equal rate for commercial disputes.  I have been a mediator since 1998, and combined with a lengthy legal career as a barrister I am extensively skilled in litigation and negotiation.
