About Patsi Michalson

I am an experienced and culturally diverse mediator, lawyer and conflict resolution expert.

 

My interest and challenge are to help others unlock creative solutions to difficult problems. I use my professional skills and life experience to facilitate difficult conversations and influence productive and constructive dialogue to end conflict and achieve lasting outcomes.

 

My core mediation focus is on health law, including medical disputes, insurance, aged care and disputes in the art space, which I am interested in and to which I am deeply connected.
