Dispute Resolver Directory
Regain control of your life.
Separation can be traumatic so it’s important to work with someone who understands what you’re going through. The decisions you make now can have a lasting impact on your future and that of your children. It is essential that you get it right.
Mediation allows you to start regaining that control by helping you communicate effectively with your ex-partner to develop practical strategies and a roadmap to move forward.

Natalie MerunovichSydney, Regional New South Wales
I am an Accredited Mediator (NMAS) with over 25 years of litigation experience. I have acted for injured plaintiffs in medical negligence claims, and have participated in well over 200 mediations as a solicitor representing plaintiffs.
Throughout my career as a solicitor, I have observed the benefits of mediation to litigants. Not only does mediation provide an alternative to the expense and stress associated with going to Court, it is also a tried and trusted method of resolving disputes for parties experiencing conflict.
I became a mediator because I believe in the process of mediation and recognise its importance to resolving conflict. I have learnt that even with the most complex of matters no matter how intractable a position may seem, there exists always the potential for resolution through mediation. Through my representation of injured plaintiffs, I have gained a valuable insight into the psychological benefits of achieving a resolution, and as a mediator am able to provide empathetic and fair consideration of the issues that matter.
The services that I offer as a mediator include:
- Mediation of litigated matters
- Mediation and conciliation of disputes
- Facilitation of joint meetings of experts (conclaves)
Should you have any inquiries or questions about my services, please feel free to contact me on 0438 766 039. You may also email me at email@example.com
