I offer a professional and approachable style of mediation predominantly within the realms of family law. 

In addition, I also provide mediation assistance relating to disputes between landlord/ tenants, neighbourhood disputes, contracts and workplace relations. 

I am flexible with availability offering evening and weekend mediation sessions. 

Sangeeta Pilger

 I resolve workplace disputes. Individuals and teams have options to access my expertise in the form of facilitated discussions or formal mediation to improve communication, relationships and productivity. 

Nationally accredited under the National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS) and observe  NMAS Practice Standards.

Accredited in a range of tools. I help individuals and teams  to enhance awareness of styles and blind spots that frequently contribute to  conflict emerging or being sustained.  Follow-up coaching and observation of meetings are utilised by my clients to support accountability and success.

I also bring co-mediation to the Canberra market. Two heads can be better than one, and will often accelerate the mediation process. The benefit to you is two mediators at a similar price to one mediator. We also provide a complimentary follow-up session to enhance accountability.

Larissa Goldberg

Goldberg Family Law Mediation helps parents, and couples affected by relationship breakdowns to avoid or end protracted, and often costly, litigation. 

We facilitate two different models of family law mediation:

  • ​Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) under the Family Law Act 1975
  • ​Mediation under the National Mediator Accreditation Scheme (NMAS)

As a private family law mediation provider, we can tailor both mediation processes to our clients' specific needs.

We assist clients to discuss issues, look at options, and work out how best to reach agreement.  

Our services include:

  • All issues arising from the breakdown of domestic relationships (heterosexual and LGBTIQ+)
  • Post-separation parenting arrangements and issues
  • ​Developing parenting plans that focus on the best interests of the child
  • ​Establishing positive post-separation co-parenting by educating clients on the impact of conflict on children and equipping them with skills to enhance their parenting ability and co-parenting relationship
  • ​Parenting coordination – assisting parents with issues on an ad hoc basis such as compliance with a court order
  • ​Property settlement - the division of assets and liabilities
  • Child support issues and developing child support agreements
  • ​Other financial arrangements such as spousal maintenance and adult child maintenance
  • ​Interfamily parenting and financial arrangements and issues
  • ​Future asset protection
  • ​Cultural and religious issues that impact on the co-parenting relationship or the ability to establish new relationships
  • ​Isolated issues such as passport applications, overseas travel, and arrangements for significant occasions
  • ​Managing changing family dynamics such as the introduction of new partners and the creation of blended families
  • ​Reviewing the appropriateness of arrangements as children develop

We appreciate that our clients and their family lawyers frequently have significant work and family commitments, and are keen to progress matters.  We endeavour to assist by:

  • ​meeting with clients as soon as possible
  • ​responding to communications and requests for the issuing of section 60I certificates promptly
  • ​accommodating clients requiring appointments at short notice or outside of business hours, including on selected weeknights and weekends
  • ​facilitating mediations in our office or at a suitable venue (arranged by the clients or lawyers) in the Melbourne metropolitan area or regional Victoria
  • ​providing typed copies of agreements 

At Goldberg Family Law Mediation, we recommend to every client that, before commencing the family law mediation process and before signing any legally binding agreement, they obtain legal advice from an experienced family lawyer.  Our legal experience enables us to identify specific matters about which clients may require further legal advice during the process.  If considered appropriate and agreed by the parties, we can facilitate legally assisted FDR and mediations that are non-adversarial and child-focussed.


There is no requirement for clients to attend a group information session before their initial meeting with a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDR practitioner).  Clients deal with the same FDR practitioner throughout the process, averting the trauma that can be associated with having to repeat their circumstances to different practitioners.

​For parenting matters, we use a variety of child-focused interventions, which take into account each child’s age, maturity and needs.  Clients are educated on the impact of conflict on children, and equipped with skills to enhance their post-separation parenting ability and co-parenting relationship.  They are required to provide copies of all current family violence orders, parenting orders, parenting plans and family reports.

​For financial matters, our focus is on facilitating the sharing of information, and just and equitable decision-making.  Clients are required to provide copies of all current financial orders and agreements, asset appraisals or valuations, and a Financial Statement and Balance Sheet (preferably prepared or reviewed by their lawyers).


Our fixed fee mediations for family law property matters are particularly cost-effective for those involving smaller asset pools.

​Clients or their lawyers are required to provide a chronology of events and copies of the parenting and financial documents listed above under FDR.

James Judge

I am focussed upon helping individuals and organisations resolve workplace and related conflicts, navigate through periods of complex change and build capacity in both individuals and teams.

My motivation is to reduce the wasteful economic and human costs that can occur when people aren’t working successfully together, communicating effectively, or realising their potential. 

I bring years of experience, an authentic approach and carefully informed, tailored methodologies to address the underlying challenges you face.

Here are just some of the ways I enjoy helping organisations and individuals

- Mediating emerging or existing conflicts between people or teams

- Enabling groups to work more cohesively, especially during times of ambiguity and change.

- Getting injured employees back to work quickly and preventing expensive grievances and workers compensation claims.

- Ensuring meetings and other forms of personal interactions are effective and respectful.

- Conducting difficult negotiations and facilitating complex consultative processes professionally and impartially.

- Coaching executives or individuals seeking guidance, career advice or wanting to deepen their personal insight
