I am the Family Law Partner of Wallace Wilkinson & Webster, a medium sized Hobart based firm.  For the last 30 years, I have practised in all aspects of family law and am an Accredited Family Law Specialist (LIV).   The majority of my current practice is comprised of complex financial matters which often involve corporate, trust and tax issues.

I gained my first mediation qualification in 1996 and have mediated many family law matters in Hobart both in person and via electronic media since then.  I obtain a great deal of satisfaction from assisting people reach a resolution to their dispute.  I have experienced many couples obtain outcomes through mediation which would not have been possible through a court process.  Further, I am often moved when the parties’  ongoing relationship is preserved or enhanced by reason of their participation in mediation.

I am Nationally Accredited as a mediator and arbitrator.   I have been recognised by the Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Market since 2014 as a preeminent family law practitioner in Tasmania and also as a leading mediator.   I am a member of the Law Society of Tasmania, the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and the Family Law Practitioners Association.
