Immediation Practice Area: Mediation, Arbitration
I have been a suburban and inner Melbourne Victorian solicitor since 1982. I practice mainly in commercial litigation and related commercial matters as well as property and estate litigation, regularly acting for small businesses and individuals.
I have dealt with financial disputes from a few hundred dollars to cases involving several million dollars. I have developed procedures for faith-based mediations and arbitrations (which can be adjusted for non- financial matters) to promote transparency and accountability.
As a member of Resolution Institute, I am an accredited Mediator, a qualified Grade 3 Arbitrator and a member of the Determinative Professional Development Group. I obtained my Professional Certificate in Arbitration with High Distinction from the University of Adelaide. I am a director of Yeshivah Beth Rivkah Schools Ltd. in Melbourne.
My business card carries my personal mission statement taken from the Talmud: that the world is sustained by 3 principles - Justice, Truth and Peace. My personal aim is to incorporate these principles to achieve an appropriate outcome to disputes.
