Family Dispute Resolution
Anna is a qualified Family Mediator and is registered with the Family Mediation Council
She offers Family Mediation in Chambers on a privately funded basis.
Where there are no safeguarding issues and where suitable, Mediation facilitates a dialogue between parties to resolve disputes in a non-confrontational fashion, providing a constructive resolution which assists parties and the children into the future. Non-court options are increasingly encouraged in order to reduce the conflict of family separation where court proceedings can polarise. Anna can provide Mediation to resolve satellite issues as a holistic addition to the “Resolution Together” model where couples who separate amicably instruct one lawyer.
