Experience that Counts

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.
