In addition we have access to high quality professional mediation services with a wealth of experience particularly in the area of community disputes. These can be used in family, community, commercial and litigation areas and in many cases to avoid much higher legal and court costs as well as endeavouring to reach an outcome that is satisfactory to all parties.
