Welcome!

This is my new website and it's quite exciting and reflects my evolving law and mediation practice.  I'm an experienced attorney, having graduated from West Virginia University law school in 1987.  I've practiced law consistently since graduation, in both public service and private practice all while raising three children, running four marathons and earning a Master's Degree in Conflict Resolution.  These experiences combine to generate this law and mediation practice, this website and this blog.  My work is centered on conflict resolution and finding the ways to address conflict that work best in each situation.  Throughout this website and in my upcoming blog posts, you will find my stories of my experiences addressing conflict through collaborative law, mediation, restorative justice and in some situations, litigation.  I may be reached at my physical offices located in Washington DC and in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, and also via email, facebook, linked in and twitter.  Please feel free to contact me to learn more the exciting changes in conflict resolution.
