new generations have a chance to build a more peaceful and respectful society.
ADRC Senior Partner
Tom Stodulka has been a lawyer for over forty years and is accredited as a
mediator in Australia, PNG, China and India. He was fortunate to have been
mentored by Sir Laurence Street and continues to promote Sir Laurence’s
philosophy of ADR as additional rather than alternative.
Tom has a reputation as an empathetic and skilled mediator. He is as
comfortable mediating a neighbourhood matter as a multi-million-dollar
commercial dispute with a room full of lawyers. He is also an accredited Family
Dispute Resolution Practitioner and has had 20 years’ experience as a coach
and assessor of new mediators. In 2013 Tom received a LEADR excellence
award for his contribution to the practice of mediation in Australia. Tom and Delcy trained together as co-mediators in Canberra in 1994.
