Description of Practice

Mary welcomes high-conflict, high-emotion disputes, particularly those involving the workplace, families, and others involved in an ongoing relationship. Mary has mediated hundreds of disputes and is skilled in addressing the emotions and interests involved in the conflict as well as supporting people effectively in moving toward a resolution that allows everyone to let go of the conflict. As a 16-year attorney and as a mediator, Mary works with clients to co-create a relationship of mutual respect and understanding. Having conducted jury trials in state and federal court, as well as arbitration and mediation, Mary understands case analysis and the risks and benefits of trial. A recent mediation client complimented Mary on her ability to "empathize while also getting the case settled." Mary also works a Parenting Coordinator (Special Master), having been trained by Joan Kelly. Feel free to contact Mary for further information about her practice and experience.
