As a mediator, I work with litigants and private clients to resolve disputes involving business, tort, real estate, and family/family business issues. In tough economic times, talking things out can save not just money but also strategic relationships. An experienced trainer and coach for over 12 years, I have taught thousands of people to resolve conflict, negotiate better, or become mediators -- from lawyers from Bulgaria through the US Agency for International Development to Fortune 500 executives in the U.S. My profession of origin is the law: as an attorney I practiced tort, municipal, labor/employment, and probate law for both sides of the legal aisle, plaintiffs and defendants (needless to say, not on the same case). It gave me an appreciation for seeing things from all sides. I'm also an avid experimenter when it comes to digital technology. An early adopter, I have been blogging for four years and advise dispute resolution professionals and attorneys on social media and web site design. Writing is an important component of my professional life, allowing me to creatively explore and share ideas relating to the resolution of disputes or negotiating business and interpersonal issues. Together with three colleagues in the ADR field -- Victoria Pynchon, Stephanie West Allen, and Gini Nelson, I write "The Human Factor", a regular column published in The Complete Lawyer, an online magazine for legal professionals, and since January 2005 I have published the award-winning blog MediationChannel.com.
