Gary Shepherd is one of the most experienced and respected Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners in Australia. Having started his professional life as a Solicitor in Queensland, Gary practiced for many years in family law. In the early 1990's, feeling that there must be a way for people to resolve the inevitable issues that arise from a relationship breakdown, without having to resort to the costs [both financial and emotional] associated with lawyers and courts, Gary undertook post-graduate studies in mediation, and, in 1995 commenced practice as a mediator of family law disputes.
Subsequently, Gary has completed a Masters Degree in Law, a Masters Degree in Social Work, a Graduate Diploma in Family Dispute Resolution, and a Diploma in Counselling, to further enhance his skills in dealing with the myriad issues and concerns that confront people subsequent to a marriage or relationship breakdown.
Academic qualifications aside, it is the many thousands of such mediation processes facilitated by Gary that have honed his skills and recognized expetise in this area, resulting in a high 'success' rate in assisting people to resolve their family disputes, and thereby minimise the stress, financial costs and emotional fallout that can result from the end of a relationship.
