As a mediator

"Dear Zoe,
I wanted to extend my debt of gratitude for your efforts today in assisting my client at the parenting and property mediation to achieve an outcome that (to my observation) all parties recognised was fair and just.
You did so by treating each of the parties with respect, working with not only the parties but the lawyers.  I feel that both clients felt they had been heard, and even where they struggled to express themselves your ‘take out’ was accurate and gratefully adopted.
Please be assured you made a positive difference to 2 people today and their 2 children.  4 people are now ready to enter the next chapter of their lives with optimism.
Thank you.
Regards
Greg Parker”

“Hi Zoe. Thanks again for the mediation yesterday. My client informed me that he felt comforted by your intake session with him in the lead up, and that seemed to make for a more open and trusting start to the day with you from his perspective.  There were some tense times there, but between the parties; but you managed to summarise the issues and defuse any tension seamlessly. I’m sure they are both relieved that all matters have now been resolved. Looking forward to working with you again!”

        - Courtney Mullen, Director, Farrar Gesini Dunn

 

"Hi Zoe,

Thank you for assisting the parties yesterday to resolve their property and parenting matters.

You structured the mediation in accordance with exactly what the parties needed to reach a resolution. You were personable and relatable with my client, empathetic where necessary but also straight down the line.

It was a pleasure working with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you as a mediator to any family law practitioner.

Kind Regards,

Briony Doyle"

        - Briony Doyle, family lawyer at Fox & Staniland Lawyers

 

"The discussion remained calm and focused and resolution was clear and agreed to by both parties, without either feeling they had "lost face." I am completely happy with the way Zoë handled the entire process."

        -client

''Zoë thanks for your assistance with the matter.  I was doubtful that we would resolve the matter at the start of the day. However I think the outcome was fair. I appreciate that you encouraged us to stay and reduce the agreement to writing as I am now confident this is an agreement that will stick.'' 

        - solicitor

"Dear Zoë you did a great job today, thanks. 

From the beginning you settled the parties in nicely and the introduction of your role was excellent.

I was impressed by your ability to gather information regarding the crux of the matter and in particular you communicated well with the clients and did a great job with delivery of information from the other side to generate thought and discussion and were able to focus the parties to consider appropriate solutions and settlement.  I appreciated that you prepared a Heads of Agreement that covenants the agreement instantly."

        - Wayne Condon, principal, Condon Legal

"Zoe - thanks for today.

You were attentive and listened to the client and both the legal representatives concerns and information.  I thought you had an air of confidence and did well to put the clients at ease.  Also importantly, you acted impartially and fairly.  Keep up the good work. "

        - Andrew Smith, barrister at University Chambers

"Zoë, just wanted to say thanks so much for today. I was really happy with your work as a mediator. "

        - client

"Thanks so much. The mediation today was efficient and ran smoothly. There wasn't anything that I think could have been done differently."

        - client

"Zoë you were very good at helping both parties to see logic today thanks!"

        - solicitor

"I think that the mediation process went well because each party was able to raise issues of importance to them in a non-judgemental atmosphere and there was sufficient time allocated to each issue. Zoë you worked hard to work through road blocks and assist the parties to generate options. "

        - Belinda Viset, family lawyer

"Today I felt very comfortable in the process and that it was a safe environment created by you that was non-judgemental.   There was nothing I would change about today. I was very happy with the mediation process." 

        - client

"Zoë thanks for today.  You did a really good job at identifying the issues in dispute and helping the parties reach agreement.  The process allowed the parties to look at things from a different perspective.  I was very impressed with your work and the process."

        - Audrey Diliberto, lawyer, Bell Lawyers 

"Zoë thanks for today.  I felt there was a high level of respect and care towards both me and my ex partner." 

        - client

"Thanks for today.  You were really prepared and it was obvious you were on top of all the issues.  I also appreciate you recognised the right time when there was a need to separate the parties.  Thanks for being respectful with the clients and showing empathy.  I will be using you again and recommending you to others. "

         - Maria Monastiriotis, Lawyer and Group principal, Nexus Lawyers

 

"Zoë made us both feel comfortable and explained the process thoroughly as well as expectations. As we were comfortable, we were able to air our "grievances" and come to an amicable solution.  Zoë encouraged us to speak to each other. The process was wonderful. After this experience I would prefer mediation to any other kind of problem solving. I would not have changed a thing about how the mediation was conducted."

        -client in mediation regarding Guardianship Tribunal matter

"It is interesting the different things that can block agreement during a matter. Even though I am a lawyer dare I say that in this matter maybe it was us lawyers making it worse! I really appreciated the way you were able to get the other lawyer and I in a room together (when previously communication had been quite hostile) to nut out the terms of the agreement. Sometimes communication can get heated when all your dealings with the other solicitor are in writing. Things were so different at the mediation face to face and you did really well at getting both of us to work well together in drafting the Heads of Agreement."

               - solicitor

 

"Thanks Zoe well done today. Good friendly approach pays dividends I think. Upon reflection I think your strength as a mediator is that in your approach at mediation it is not about you, but is about the clients."

        - Alan Taylor, lawyer, North Coast law, Palmwoods, QLD

"Dear Zoe

Thanks for your assistance recently. I know it was a complicated mediation both in terms of parenting and property issues. Thanks for establishing a good rapport with the clients and also your helpful suggestions as to the way forward. You were empathetic and attentive and I look forward to working with you again.

Thanks

Dianna Kovacevic"

        - Dianna Kovacevic, Principal, Kovacevic Lawyers, Woollongong

"Thanks for encouraging us to think of creative solutions outside the box."

               - client

"Zoë thanks for the way you conducted the mediation and in particular the way you handled things when we needed to separate into different rooms."

               -client

 

​“Zoe, I really appreciated the way you opened the mediation with the initial session which solidified shared ground and mutual understanding and created momentum on resolving the issues.”

               -client

 

“Zoe just wanted to say that from start to finish you conducted your mediation in a relaxed, but professional way that was conducive to resolution.  Your manner puts the parties at ease which meant they were more open to listening to each other.  You were realistic about the outcomes of mediation and focused on reaching agreement that will last.  I will be recommending you to others.”

               -Melissa Sharpe, Sharpe Legal and Conveyancing

 

“Hey Zoe, just wanted to say you were able to build trust with all the parties today. In my opinion trust is crucial for the success of a mediation and your empathetic approach really allowed the parties to communicate their position. The real value of all this is if all relevant issues are on the table, the possibility of getting to a yes is much more likely.  I will be recommending you as a mediator to others.”

               -William Calokerinos, barrister, Second Floor Wentworth Chambers

 

Zoe – thanks for today. I just wanted to say that I think it helped to have such a clear agenda which provided structure and made us feel that all points were important. I also noticed that you worked with the less tense items first and build up from there.  Thanks also for the way you kept things on track and rehashed what we were each saying to reach understanding and reduce animosity.”

               -client

 

“Thanks Zoe – I feel we now have clarity on what there is left to work through.  The process really allowed us to listen to each other and work out some compromises. Thank you!”

               -client

 

“Thanks Zoe for your very professional work today.  You were able to mediate an outcome which was beyond what I thought was possible. This is the first (and I hope last!) time I am in a situation that necessitates having a mediation, so I can’t compare it to anything else, but to be honest I can’t think of anything that could have been improved upon. Thanks so much.”

               -client

 

“Thanks Zoe, I really appreciated the way you explained the process on the day and kept us appraised of the progress.  I always had the feeling that we were moving ahead in the process and obviously am relieved all issues were resolved. Thanks.

               -client

 

“Thanks for your assistance.  You have been really professional and diligent in your approach to mediation and have addressed each issue.  In particular I noticed you were very particular in your attention to detail and approach to the clients.”

               -Rana Saab, Founding partner, Saab Law Group

 

As the author of Inside Family Law

 

"Durand gets to the human side of law... other authors of law books could learn from her precise questioning, her focus on the emotional and psychological toll of law...along with her focus on the effect law has on society. The approach of asking these questions directly to those within the legal system (judges, lawyers and so on), is a fresh new approach to the problem, and one that again, deserves celebration for Durand’s efforts."

               -Joshua Krook, author and writer at The New Intrigue 

​"Zoë Durand has provided such an important resource for those going through the process looking for more perspective. I've been recommending Inside Family Law to all my friends." 

               -Isabel Lo, journalist, founder of Media Diversity Australia and former producer for ABC and CNN International 

"As far as I am aware- having worked in family law as a barrister, Judge and now mediator and arbitrator- there is no other book like this. If there is, despite many years working in this area, I certainly have never come across it. 

Inside Family Law offers the reader, whether a law student, academic, inexperienced lawyer, a lawyer wanting a refresher, a person going through a separation, a public servant, or politician (which today could be pretty important), quality knowledge and experience in the practise of family law in all its aspects, from representing and guidance of the client, to advocacy, appreciating psychological issues and their importance and more. The interview with Dr. Antony Milch in the book is a must-read. 

...This book, as far as I'm concerned, is prime real estate. That's because of its range of practical knowledge from leading experts. Should you want to know what makes a good family lawyer in practice, or the methodologies in valuing a business or real estate, or the wisdom gained in dealing with difficult child-related matters, the topics can be easily found in the well-organised index. In my opinion, a copy of this book is a must for all institutions teaching family law, as well as for those who are current or aspiring family law practitioners or those going through the family law process firsthand."

              -The Honourable Peter Rose AM QC, former Family Court Judge, adjunct professor at the University of Sydney, Mediator, Arbitrator

“As a journalist and someone who found themselves going through a separation, I found Zoe's book so helpful. I felt like I was sitting down with these Judges, barristers and other legal experts getting exactly the sort of information I needed.  I highly recommend this book for anyone about to embark on this difficult and overwhelming time.”

               -Justine Kearney, ABC journalist

 

​As a speaker

 

"I would like to thank you for coming to speak with my Family Law students yesterday.

Your talks were insightful and interesting, and gave students a much needed understanding and perspective about the reality of practising family law."

          - Dr Noam Peleg, lecturer at UNSW

 

“In particular I really enjoyed the informal question and answer part at the end of your talk. When you were talking so openly about your own experiences from the heart. You could feel the atmosphere in the room – everyone was on the edge of their seat.”

           - Olia Skvor, criminal and family lawyer

"Dear Zoe, 

Thanks for the workshop you ran for us on marketing and legal practice business strategy. We really think it has added value to our firm and in particular appreciated the practical, useful and strategic advice on how to establish and build our brand and develop and manage our client base. Thanks for adapting your knowledge and experience to our particular areas of practice and our individual needs. We will definitely be recommending you to others!”

        - Katherine Evans & Melodie Elliott, Evans & Elliott Lawyers.

 

As a lawyer

"As the barrister instructed, I also wanted to say that the way you managed this case was wonderful, both the first time round and again on the other’s party current application to reopen the matter. Your approach and management of the matter was balanced and reasoned. As always your preparation went above and beyond.  Congratulations to you for the Judgement in our client’s favour." 

               - Mary-Clare Kennedy, barrister at Waratah Chambers

"Thank you very much for your time, advice and kindness. I am truly grateful and felt inspired and strong when I left you.  Please accept these flowers as a token of my appreciation."

                - client

"Dear Zoe,

I am quite sad to hear that you will no longer be the Independent Children’s lawyer in this matter, but that is me being selfish.

I have worked with two excellent ICL’s in matters in the Family Court since commencing family court work. There is your excellent self and another.

You are to be commended for your open mind and your ability to see the issues and then to try and obtain a result in the child’s best interests and whilst that may sound quite routine and what should ordinarily be done, it in my view, rarely what happens. You are excellent. I hope you will continue to have the same amount of success that you have had to date in the future. You will no doubt win the minds of those whom you work with because of your ability and you will win hearts because of who you are."

              - solicitor in a matter in which Zoe was the Court Appointed Independent Children's Lawyer

 

"I would like to thank you for your amazing work as my solicitor through my extremely difficult, emotional and often unsettling divorce. Throughout the exhausting process, you explained fully, all the issues pertaining to my case in layman's terms and pointed out all options that were available to me. Moreover, the support you gave me went well beyond that of a retained divorce lawyer.

As you are aware, I have recommended several people to you and will continue to do so. I would just like to say how grateful I am for all that you have done for me and I feel blessed that you were the person who had to endure this case with me. Good luck for the future."

                - client

"Thank you for your instructions on this matter. In particular I wish to express my appreciation to Ms Durand for the very thorough way in which she prepared the matter, in particular the affidavits of our client. I am certain that this hard work led to the Barrister instructed obtaining the favourable orders that he did."

                - Paul Livingstone, barrister at Frederick Jordan Chambers

"Dear Zoe,

It was nice to meet and work with you as Independent Children’s Lawyer and it was a pleasure. You must be able to withstand much stress doing that sort of work all the time and be as pleasant as you are.

I am sure you will continue to succeed in your career. I really appreciate all the efforts you made."

                - solicitor in a matter in which Zoe was the Court Appointed Independent Children's Lawyer

"Dear Zoe, your approach is something that I was expecting and really missing from my previous lawyers. I didn't have to chase you but you made sure to inform me about any developments. This is something that a person in a similar situation as mine needs.

Thank you for your patience. I don't know how you can deal with similar cases every day. After finding you, I just wish you had been my first (and only) solicitor, I would have had much better understanding of the relevant factors in the property settlement and how they should have been done from the start."

                - client

"Your time and information was undoubtedly valuable and definitely worth the investment, I really appreciate how you captured and supported my situation in such a short time. It was lovely to meet you as well and thank you for your kindness."

                - client

"Zoe you were GOLD to me. There weren't many who could have stepped up to my ex like you did and give me the emotional guidance you gave. Thank you.  I have come through the other side now and my new partner and I are going beautifully. My ex and I keep a pleasant distance through email and text."

            - client

"Zoe Durand acted as a family lawyer for me in my property settlement matter with my wife. Throughout the entire proceedings I found her dealings with me cordial, constructive and surprisingly very relaxing and calming so much so that it was hard sometimes to believe that I was even going through a divorce and property settlement. She provided expert advice and considered all possible issues in my case, but always allowed me to decide what I felt most comfortable with, again pointing out the issues with whatever it was that I decided upon. I felt fully informed throughout the entire process. Over the period of time that I consulted with Zoe in fact she became more like a counsellor and trusted person to me.

The outcome of my matter (which involved an amicable settlement and Consent Orders outside of Court) was excellent and more than I had hoped for, and I felt that I had grown as a person. Whilst my wife and I were bitter towards each other prior to approaching Zoe, at the end of the process we became very good friends and now respect and understand each other better. Our little boy is also very happy and healthy as a result.

I have recommended Zoe to my brother who is a minister at his local Church. As a minister he is witness to many marriage break downs. To know that there are significantly better alternatives than Court and destructive adversarial cases is comforting.

Again, I cannot thank Zoe enough. Should I require any further dealings in matters of family law, I would unreservedly approach Zoe Durand, again."

                - client

"I have spoken to other (cheaper lawyers in my area) but found them to be difficult to talk to, you explained everything and were very honest."

                - client

"Dear Zoe,

I will of course advise anyone to consult you in case they need a lawyer or mediator. I may also be contacting you again one day as although I am hopeful, I never know when I may need to resort to the courts again.

Without you acting for me I would not be today so hopeful and able to enjoy a relationship with my son that I now have. I attached a couple of pictures of my son just because I am so proud :). 

Mes salutations les plus distinguées, Zoe !"

                - client and father (French national) 

"Thank you for these useful pieces of information. Also thank you very much for your advice on this. I find the letter excellent and you may send it at your earliest convenience. I completely agree with all the points that you just made. Please send your excellent and apt response, which does not require any amendment. In addition, I agree with the strategy that you have outlined.

The French barrister from Paris recommended by you to assist with my other matter in France has been great. He is being very competent, helpful, and generous (he has revised his fees in light of my difficult financial situation). So, thank you Zoe for this excellent reference. I expect to continue to work with this barrister on my other family issues in France.

Thank you for sending me the financial update about my account. And thank you Zoe for trying to rein in my costs. I have greatly appreciated your legal services. Thanking you once again for your help."

                - client in property matter

"Thank you so much for a focused, informed, effective (and at times humorous!) effort today at mediation.. I can't tell you how relieved I am that the entire matter is resolved and to bypass the whole courtroom nightmare and to have my kids with me.. I am truly grateful. I hope we stay in touch."

                - client

"Hi Zoe,

I appreciate your diligence. Thank you for all your work, you have been extremely helpful, supportive and competent."

                - client's mental health support worker at New Horizons

"Zoe Durand set about developing a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA) that was completely tailored to my situation. At first I recommended cutting and pasting from an off the shelf BFA to save money, but quickly realised that was not going to work due to the complex nature of our situation and getting it legally right. She upfront negotiated a fixed fee that was higher than other lawyers but to my surprise I got a bargain, not just in billable hours, but in the quality of Zoe's advice and scrutiny placed in producing the BFA.

The complexity of the document and the number of changes needed to satisfy myself and my partner while keeping it a strong legally incontestable document was something that I did not forecast. I appreciated her responsiveness and quality work.

I would highly recommend using Zoe to complete a BFA due to her strong understanding of the legislation surrounding the legality of producing a legally strong binding document that should give you piece of mind that you have done everything you can to ensure that it is not contested or set aside by a court in the future."

                - client, in pre living together Binding Financial Agreement

Hi Zoe, now that you are already booked to appear in Court in another matter on the day my matter is in Court, I just wish I had just made the decision earlier and secured you for that day from when we first met at the initial conference. I obviously feel the connection with you as you grasped my situation so well and have offered me such great service.

                - client

"I am very happy with Zoe Durand's handling of my family law property matter. She worked hard and was very energetic in expediting all relevant correspondence and documentation.

Very conscious of not incurring undue costs, she would keep our phone conversations focused.

Being very personable, it was easy to communicate with her and she showed a great amount of tact and empathy in regard to some of the more delicate features of my matter.

Zoe was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the law and consistently offered excellent advice and proffered various options as to what course to follow.

During all phases of the court process and the Conciliation Conference she proved herself to be a clever tactician and a solid ally, supplying excellent advice and being great emotional support. I would unreservedly recommend her services and indeed would avail myself to them if I were in similar circumstances again."

                - client

"You are a brilliant lawyer. Thank you so much for your help and all the support. I wish you success and happiness."

                - client 

"Thank you for all your help. I believe the property outcome which you negotiated with the other party is what you told me I would probably get in the very first place. Yes, I'm actually aware that I'm a pain, but I do appreciate all your work!

                - client

I hope none of my friends, family or myself ever goes through what I went through and needs to use your help, but if they do I will definitely know who to recommend.

                - client

"Thank you so much Zoë. Meeting with you was like a godsend just appeared in front of me and told me "It's okay, you can come out now", after spending 10 years controlled and abused by my ex husband. I have had no say in my children's life and now I have the strength to fight for my freedom. Thank you so much for your help. I am really thankful. God bless you.

                - client

"Hi Zoe – I am so impressed with the Affidavit for interim hearing. It all hung together so well I don’t know how you did it. All the incidents, which on their own are not major, the way you pieced them together was just brilliant."

                - client

"In 2012, feeling anxious and out of my depths, I contacted Zoe Durand, who took on my matter, which was a dispute with my ex about our child.

From the get go, Zoe has been warm and comforting; carefully taking in the abundance of information I'd given her, while always keeping me informed of the many possible outcomes of my matter and giving constructive advice and guidance that has helped navigate me through what would have otherwise been an impossible whirlwind.

Having Zoe as my representation has given me a sense of comfort and much needed relief.

Through almost 3 years of litigation regarding our child, Zoe stayed strong and productive when faced with receiving constant correspondence, reviewing/composing lengthy documents, drafting of letters and somehow managing other clients.

During times where my matter became overwhelming, Zoe was always able to prioritise what did and didn't need attention, gently shifting focus to the points of importance, saving me time and also money in fees.

Approaching court hearings and especially in the lead up to my trial, Zoe worked incredibly hard and put her all into making sure all parts of my documents and evidence were completed and completed well.

She threw herself in the deep end and went above and beyond all my expectations.

To this day, Zoe continues to represent me (because unfortunately my ex tried to start proceedings again) to this standard and continues to do everything in her power to achieve excellent results for me; in and out of the courtroom.

I consider myself incredibly lucky to have this outstanding, empathetic, and hard working solicitor representing me and would highly recommend her services."

             - client  

"A huge thanks to you Zoe for the exceptional management of my recent family law matter. Zoe was not only across all requirements, she was responsive and quick to act at all stages and gained a great result."

                 - client

"Thank you so much for your personal approach. I really appreciated the way you can pick up people when they are most vulnerable and work to assist them in such a caring manner. It really is beautiful and most appreciated. Thanks not only for your legal advice and expertise but also your reassuring words and manner and your kindness."

                 - client

"It has been a pleasure working with you, only wish that I had listened to you the first time but we will get this sorted."

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Zoë made us both feel comfortable and explained the process thoroughly as well as expectations. As we were comfortable, we were able to air our "grievances" and come to an amicable solution.  Zoë encouraged us to speak to each other. The process was wonderful. After this experience I would prefer mediation to any other kind of problem solving. I would not have changed a thing about how the mediation was conducted."
