ADR Experience

In addition to mediating private cases, Susan serves as a Court Appointed Mediator in the Loudoun and Fairfax County Courts. Susan also has been certified by the Virginia Supreme Court as a Mediator Mentor, and Susan has mentored several mediators assisting them in their court certifications.


As a former litigator, Susan is all too familiar with the win/lose mentality of litigation where a Judge determines who wins and who loses. Realizing there had to be a more positive and less stressful way to resolve disputes, Susan became a mediator so she could help clients find mutually acceptable solutions to their problems. “I help clients decide what works best for them so they can find a path forward in a more positive way saving them time and money compared to other alternatives”.
