Mediator & Arbitrator

Kara Best has been practising exclusively in family law for over 15 years and it was a natural progression to mediation and arbitration. Recognised as a Nationally Accredited Mediator & Arbitrator and Accredited Family Law Specialist with the Queensland Law Society, Kara is also a Member of the Australian Institute of Family Law Mediators and Arbitrators.

Kara was born and bred in the local area and returned to Toowoomba in 2007. She is a former Senior Legal Associate to the Chief Justice of the Family Court in Melbourne, an appointment which followed a period in private practice in Brisbane and an earlier period in which she was Associate to the Honourable Justice Michelle May of the Family Court and the broader Trial Division of the Brisbane Registry of the Family Court. She is intimately aware of how the law works in operation, and how best to achieve the most optimal outcome from the family law system.

Extensive experience in navigating the family law system for her clients is paramount in a fair and equitable approach to mediation, and coupled with Kara’s intention is to achieve the most optimal outcome for every client, be it from a legal, financial or emotional perspective she inherently understands the importance of mediation within the family law system and the importance of resolution of conflict at the earliest opportunity that is in the best interests of everyone.
