Kim Henderson, Mediate First

MediateFirst was established by Kim Henderson in 2011 to offer alternative approaches to the traditional Family Law legal services available to couples whose relationships have broken down.

Kim is an Accredited Family Law Specialist, a nationally accredited Mediator and a collaboratively trained lawyer. He is a member of the Australian Institute of Family Law Arbitrators and Mediators and has over 30 years’ legal experience.

Kim is assisted by Jennifer Henderson who provides administrative support. Jennifer has significant Family Law experience in a paralegal capacity and attends mediation sessions in that role.


Kim’s focus is on assisting his clients to identify acceptable financial settlement outcomes and reach agreement with as little anxiety, stress, expense and conflict as possible.

With a combination of practical common sense and the experience acquired during his legal career, Kim encourages his clients to confront and address relevant issues, to discuss appropriate property settlement options, and when necessary to recognise the benefits of compromise.
