Brief
Thumbnail:


Ms. Gordon, a mediator since 1987, is an expert in dealing with highly emotionally charged and complex cases. She has also supervised and trained hundreds of mediators. Comments from lawyers present in her appellate mediations include:
\"It was a case which my client and I had despaired of settling, in spite of our having attempted settlement several times, both before and after the trial court\'s rulings. Ms. Gordon was well prepared, helpful and instrumental in bringing about a settlement.\"
\"Your mediation allowed the client to express himself and allowed the attorneys to hear his concerns. The attorneys were then allowed to express their opinion of the probate legal system as it applied in this particular case. Your mediation led to the settlement of a case that could have continued in the legal systme for some time.\"
