Ms. Pelot guarantees an experience that is professional, impartial and balanced; takes place in a confidential setting; and is infused with her unique energy and passion for facilitating agreements. She is tenacious and dynamic, with a quick intellect and highly intuitive nature. She has the innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life, and a knack for succinct problem solving. Ms. Pelot's goal during mediation is to resolve the instant dispute. However, she believes a "good mediation" is marked by participants who leave feeling satisfied in knowing they have made an educated and well thought-out decision, that is in the best interest of themselves, their clients, and/or their companies. Contrary to popular belief, "equitable unhappiness" is never the goal. Ms. Pelot strives to insure mediation is a pleasant experience, while remaining completely cognizant of the serious nature of the business at hand.
