Sherri Swain

The FOUNDER & THE WHY: Sherri Swain, Founder, has a unique skill set to offer mediation clients that sets her apart – depth & breadth of over 30 years of financial experience. Sherri is meticulous -she simplifies financial complexities to help you uncover optimal financial solutions quicker. She is warm, insightful, & an outlier in her professional life.

After negotiating multiple mediations in the dissolution of her 20-year+ marriage, she took that insight, combined with her financial & legal skill sets, to help others negotiate complex issues. Sherri has learned a hard truth: only mediation allows you to customize solutions to protect what you built. Clients are welcome with or without attorneys. Sherri has relationships with like-minded attorneys.

The MISSION & VISION: Through her experiences, Sherri’s passion grew to design a firm to help clients make key moves around issues she overcame in her own dissolution process – to emerge stronger – with a mission to help all thrive. She saw reoccurring opportunities to use her financial insight to negotiate smarter. She uses this insight to “expand client’s pies with a vision of abundance”-VS “divide up a client’s lives” -in a scarcity mindset. She can read a room to help ease negotiations.

The Intentional HOW & The Transparent FLAT FEE – that provides more certainty: The key to her process is a passion to help parties negotiate more simplistically & harmoniously in reducing costs & stress. Sherri “deep dives” expediently – she does more prep upfront while charging a FLAT FEE to #1-eliminate undue stress & #2-allow for key “fluid communication” versus worry over length of calls. Result: resolution options get clearer quicker as she finds financial nuances readily.

Why is Sherri unique?

  • financial insight to simplify complex financial issues & design customized solutions expediently.

  • drive to help all emerge resilient & thrive, having personally navigated life’s toughest transitions-Sherri “truly gets” how stressful conflict & transitions can be.

  • insightful approach that enables clients to be methodical & fact-based VS positional & anger driven.
