Description of Practice

Mary Lyons is an experienced, full-time, professional mediator with Virginia Supreme Court certification, as well as an attorney, and is available to help you resolve disputes quickly, and with less stress and costs than litigation. Regardless of the issue that is between you and another business, a client, your business partners, or even between you and your family members, we can help you have a good conversation that will make it much less likely that you will need to hire a lawyer. Or, if the dispute has already escalated to a lawsuit, we can help you figure out how to settle it. Clients (with the assistance of their lawyers, if desired) get to talk about the situation on their own terms. They are invited to say whatever they want to communicate to the other party, and ask whatever questions they need answered in order to move forward. Especially in cases that concern financial matters, Just Resolutions helps clients make the best possible decisions about how to resolve a stressful situation successfully. Most often, within a few hours, clients arrive at a settlement they are truly satisfied with. Mediation provides the greatest likelihood that conflicts can be resolved to the satisfaction of all concerned. We focus on resolving conflict so that you can get back to what you do best! Call us at (804) 503-6974 to schedule a free consultation.

Professional Background

A mediator who has 15 years’ experience as a business and tax attorney as well as 13 years’ experience as a business owner, is able to immediately understand the types of disputes that business owners face and the issues involved (keeping costs down). While she found the role of advocate challenging and rewarding, resolving disputes has become her true passion and calling. Mary has mediated hundreds of cases, and is highly valued for her ability to connect personally with everyone at the table while drilling down on the issues that can adjust parties’ positions and guide them toward settlement. She is very proactive in helping parties prepare for the mediation by identifying the information that is critical to the negotiations, helping them evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their positions, and will work tirelessly to facilitate a resolution. Mary has well over 200 hours of mediation and negotiation training from numerous institutions.
