Affirmative Mediations is an online directory of independent mediators. Each practitioner offers differing areas of expertise and specialities to assist with resolving your dispute – without the need for litigation (and the delays, cost and expense that comes with it). If you have a solicitor and / or barrister you are able to bring them also, or mediate yourself – it is entirely up to you. Alternatively, suitable facilities anywhere in Australia can be arranged.

The mediators are all entirely independent from each other.
