What do family lawyers really think about FDR?

VADR Event – Susan Hamilton-Green

In 2015, Susan Hamilton-Green, family lawyer and a specialist in Family Law (LIV) since 1990, surveyed about 110 practitioners to explore what family lawyers really thought about Family Dispute Resolution. Their responses and additional comments provided a good indication of the overall approach of family lawyers to FDR and what they see as significant when making recommendations to their clients.

In this presentation, Susan discusses her findings, including the many factors family lawyers take into consideration when advising and directing their clients to FDR and the areas highlighted as important for FDR practitioners in their ongoing relationships with family lawyers.

A registered FDR practitioner, trained arbitrator and conflict coach, Susan has been a Specialist in Mediation (LIV) since 1993, provides mediation training, coaching and supervision, undertakes private mediation, and conferences for FDRs through VLA. She is a lecturer for the College of Law, a principal of InTandem Legal Services and the principal of Creative Family Law Solutions.
