Jasmine Henry started with RSI in 2022 and worked in our Eviction Mediation Program, assisting landlords and tenants in resolving cases. She is currently RSI’s Research Associate and supports our ongoing projects in various ways. As part of her role, Jasmine plans focus groups, drafts research surveys and edits research findings. Jasmine obtained her J.D. from Florida State University College of Law and her B.A. in Editing, Writing and Media from Florida State University. She previously worked in private practice as a family law attorney, where she helped her clients obtain divorces, modify prior judgments and adopt children.
During her time as an attorney and law student, Jasmine employed several alternative dispute resolution (ADR) tools, and, over the years, her positive experiences with mediation and the collaborative law process increased her interest in ADR. Jasmine loves ADR because it helps resolve disputes outside of the courtroom, in a typically lower-stress and lower-cost alternative setting. She also values ADR as a tool for connection and education, as it also allows opposing parties to talk in-depth and gain a greater understanding of each other and the legal process.
