Resolve your disputes through Mediation



Mediation is an out of court and non-adversarial approach to resolving disputes between parties. The mediator is a neutral, third-party and assists parties to reach an agreement by facilitating discussions around the issues, barriers and other interests that are relevant in order to agree on an outcome and plan moving into the future.

In some circumstances, mediation maybe ordered by the courts or required by the tribunal, however, mediation can also occur prior to, or after court or tribunal proceedings have commenced. The mediation process allows a collaborative approach to resolving disputes, whilst being guided to reach an agreement that both parties are satisfied with.

If an agreement is not achieved during mediation, the process is "without prejudice". Meaning that the agreements proposed during mediation will not influence subsequent court / tribunal proceedings.



Preserve Relationships: By utilising a more collaborative approach to dispute resolution, familial, business, employee and relationships are more likely to remain on friendly terms. 

Maintain Control: Mediation allows input from both parties as to their perspectives and desired outcome of a dispute. This is unlike when a matter proceeds to court and the judge's decision in final. 

Decreased Costs: Mediation is significantly less costly than those associated with commencing proceedings / litigation.

Save Time: Mediation itself usually only takes one day after the mediation conference date is set, with the whole process from initial consultation, only taking 1-3 weeks, unlike court proceedings which can take several months or years. 

Reduce Stress: The non-adversarial and less formal nature of mediation allows parties to reach an agreement and engaged in collaborative discussions, reducing the emotional toll often experienced by parties to a matter in court proceedings. 



Our services are fixed-fee with costs disclosed upfront. There are mediation organisations (Community Legal Centres, and Government Funded Organisations) which provide reduced-fee mediation services. However, at Essia Law, our competitive pricing ensures the fast resolution of your disputes. 

With some fee-reduced services having 4-6 month waiting lists, we are able to work with you to find a suitable time to commence the mediation process at your earliest convenience with one of our experienced and nationally accredited mediators.
