Approach

Preparation and attentiveness are key to a neutral's effectiveness. A mediator must come to understand the nature of the dispute, the applicable legal constraints, the parties' perceptions of their interests and concerns, the existence of barriers to resolution, and the history of any settlement negotiations. This helps the mediator adjust her approach to best assist the parties in resolving their conflict. Preparation, attention to detail, empathy, and conscientious neutrality are keys to an arbitrator's effectiveness. I am willing to mediate or arbitrate either in person or virtually.

Lisa has served on the Boards of Directors of the Association for Conflict Resolution and the New York State Dispute Resolution Association. She has also chaired the Suffolk County Alternative Dispute Resolution Association Committee. She is a recipient of Long Island Business News' Leadership in Law Award and of the Directors' Award from the Suffolk County Bar Association.
