ANNE-LISE WALL is a senior mediator accredited with the Family Mediators Association and the Family Mediation Council. She practiced as a family lawyer for over 30 years and was the senior partner in her own law practice before merging with a larger practice where she worked as a Consultant Family Lawyer and mediator. She was one of the first family lawyers to train as a mediator in the early 1990’s.
Anne-Lise’s career as a Family Lawyer led her to believe strongly that the pain and distress of the divorce court could be avoided using the mediation process. By talking in a calm, supported and structured way, couples can resolve difficult issues relating to parenting their children, or dealing with their finances following separation or divorce, in such a way that they retain control. Anne-Lise has mediated very many cases in this way with great success.
Anne-Lise is also qualified to have Direct Consultation with Children in mediation. However in her experience, once the children are aware that their parents are working together to find solutions, they often find this very beneficial.
