Denise has a uniquely broad practice. For over 25 years she has helped clients resolve disputes
yielding 5- to 9-figure settlements across multiple subject areas
and often involving creative process or subject matter solutions.
Denise does not apply a cookie-cutter approach to her mediations. The obstacles to settlement are not the same in every case, and may include, among other things, conflicting views of law or fact, confidential business or personal needs, psychological and personality issues, and clashes in communication and negotiation styles.
Because the challenges differ from case to case, she tailors her efforts accordingly.
Denise also believes people & process skills are as important as subject-matter expertise.
Difficult personalities, intense emotions and unproductive tactics can derail a negotiation in no time.
There are real people involved, not just issues. And with over 25 years of full-time mediation experience,
there probably is nothing she hasn’t seen – or managed – in a mediation.
Feel free to contact Denise for an initial assessment of your dispute to see if she is the right mediator for you.
