About Tracey-Leigh Wessels



Tracey-Leigh has been practicing as a Family Law Mediator & Attorney since the mid 1990’s. Her Practice is situated in La Lucia, Durban. She holds the degrees :  BA. LLB.  LLM.  M. ChPr (Cum Laude).  Tracey-Leigh has over the years as a Family Law Attorney acquired a wide range of legal knowledge, negotiating skills and practical legal experience in the field of Family Law, Divorce and Reproductive Law. 


She is an accredited Family Law and Divorce Mediator having received her Mediation accreditation already in 1998. She recalls Mediation in the late 1990’s and early 2000 as being slow and sporadic.  This primarily due to a lack of understanding of the value of mediation for families experiencing separation, divorce and other family traumas. Recent changes to the Law and increasing societal recognition of the advantages of mediation over litigation has resulted in Tracey-Leigh spending most of her time mediating family disputes, divorce and post-divorce matters.


Tracey-Leigh believes that it is critical that professionals give back to society and she has over the years provided legal advice to a large number of Non-Governmental Organizations in respect of Family Law and Gender and Children’s Rights issues.  Tracey-Leigh is a well-known public speaker and Mediation trainer and she regularly speaks at meeting on Family Law, Women and Children’s Rights, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
