Specializing in Mediation



We’ve selected six Lawyers of the Year for portraits and to share trends in their legal specialties and a quotation that has inspired them in their work.

Notable trend: When I began mediating in 1994, the practice was a relatively new part of the litigation process. Over the past 20 years, lawyers and clients have accepted mediation as an integral part of most court systems, including those in New Hampshire. More recently, mediation and other facilitated conversations have become more prevalent outside the court system. Families, businesses, municipalities and nonprofits recognize the importance of managing conflict. Addressing conflict in a less formal setting before entering the court system often provides the opportunity to find a broader range of possible solutions than are achievable through litigation. Assisting parties in creating the best solution possible is my favorite part of mediation.

“Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete.”
