Barrister and Mediator

Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner

Hi, I’m Rachael Hempling. I help family lawyers and their clients resolve conflict and stay out of court.

You know when you have a family law client, a few letters have been exchanged and you’re just not getting anywhere? You don’t want to file an application but feel like you’re run out of options?

My mediation process facilitates meaningful negotiations and educates families on how to best come up with agreements that work both now and well into the future.

I offer a range of options when it comes to family dispute resolution so your clients can chose one that is right for them.
