Special Counsel Alan Wright believes that most disputes can be resolved by mediation. He is passionate about assisting people to resolve their dispute early and sensibly.

Alan was admitted as a solicitor in 1989. Since that time, he has practiced almost exclusively in family law. He has been an Accredited Specialist in Family Law since 1997 and is a nationally accredited mediator under the National Mediator Accreditation System.


Alan can conduct mediations in rooms available at our office at 1/133 King Street, Newcastle.

There is metered parking available on both King and Perkins Streets. There is also a council car park in King Street (just east of our office). Parking can be limited, so please allow sufficient time to find a park and arrive at our office prior to the mediation commencement time.

We also have an office at 430 Pacific Highway, Belmont, with parking available at the rear of the office.

By arrangement, the mediation can take place at an alternate venue if that is more suitable to the parties.


  1. Read position papers, mediation up to 4.5 hours and report $1,650 including GST.
  2. Read position papers, mediation over 4.5 hours and report $2,750 including GST.

Documents needed prior to mediation

Prior to mediation, the following documents should be provided to Alan:

  1. Balance Sheet.
  2. Position Statement (brief).
