"Professionalism, sound expertise, thorough preparation, trust"
Having worked with Claudine as a mediator, and in a very complex matter, Claudine impressed me immensely with her professionalism, sound expertise, thorough preparation and ability to gain a client’s trust. She easily works with very different personalities, and uses her skill to engage people in the settlement process, which is an invaluable tool in the mediator’s belt.

“Achieved A Resolution When I Had My Doubts That We Could Find Common Ground”
Thanks for your assistance with the mediation the other day. Your job was made a lot more difficult by the other side being self-represented. Your practical common-sense approach, not to mention your persistence and commitment, achieved a resolution when I had my doubts that we could find common ground at the beginning of the day. You certainly saved my client thousands of dollars on a trial when it clearly shouldn’t have been necessary.

Dr Claudine Kasselis presided over a mediation involving my client, in February 2020. Both my client and I were impressed with her professionalism, people skills and legal acumen. Dr Kasselis was articulate and in my view, instrumental in achieving an outcome which was acceptable to all parties. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a mediator.

“Empathy And Support Along With Strategy And Tactics”
I was really impressed with the way Claudine instantly developed a detailed understanding of my issues. She operates with a difference, providing empathy and support along with strategy and tactics. Most importantly, she searches for solutions and wants the best possible outcome as much as her clients do. I know I would not have achieved the same outcome with anybody else.

Claudine was absolutely brilliant. I felt like she listened really well, deeply cared for my situation and resolved my matters really efficiently with that delicate touch that is required in cases like these.
“I Have Found Dr Kasselis To Be Highly Competent”
I have included Dr Kasselis as one of my panel Mediators for child, property (or both) family Law matters for several years. As a consequence Dr Kasselis has conducted Mediations in respect a number of matters, for my clients. I have found Dr Kasselis to be highly competent Mediators who is very skilled in obtaining an outcome even in the most high conflict cases. I have also have found Dr Kasselis to be accommodating in respect Mediation arrangements and she has, invariably, attended each Mediation I have conducted with her very well prepared. She clearly has read the materials in advance of the mediation and, where relevant, has researched the relevant law. She has even brought along printouts of the relevant cases which is pleasing and something few other Mediators do.
