With her strong background in employment law Melanie is uniquely positioned to work with parties to mediate disputes.

In addition to the experience gained in more than 25 years of private practice in the area of employment law, Melanie has received intensive training in alternate dispute resolution.

The rising cost of litigation and delay in reaching trial creates ongoing issues in terms of human and monetary resources.  Mediation offers an opportunity to arrive at a resolution in a more cost effective manner while having control over the outcome.

Beyond an understanding of employment law, a successful mediator in workplace disputes is one who has an appreciation and understanding of the interests of the parties and how to create an environment within which to reach a resolution.  After years of representing employees and employers, Melanie brings this insight along with a balanced and fair approach to the table.
