Experience that Counts

After more than 40 years as a senior attorney, Phyllis knows firsthand how many disputes can benefit from the use of mediation, as opposed to litigation. Mediation allows parties to retain control of the outcome, rather than having a decision handed down by a third party. It can also be more efficient and less of a drain on parties’ resources.

Phyllis has mediated more than 2,000 disputes, pairing a facilitative approach with the ability to ask both parties hard questions that lead to greater clarity on the important issues. With the in-depth legal knowledge necessary to keep parties focused on the relevant issues, she is passionate about helping people find creative, viable solutions to their disputes so they can move forward.
