Sherrene is a passionate and gifted professional advocate for anybody who finds themselves involved in a dispute, particularly if the dispute involves; family disputes, perceived legal rights, legal wrongdoing, or threat of legal action against them. I work with a peaceful and positive approach with a very experienced and gentle strategic plan resulting in a balanced, informative, and collaborative mediation process.

If you have had prior experience with mediation - this service will be a whole different kind with Sherrene as your mediator. She will also develop the best plan for mediation. If she wants to mediate solo, she will - if she feels that co-mediation will benefit the parties then she brings in her male partner to offer a gender-neutral setting to encourage trust, peace, and hard-work toward a resolution. Sherrene wants you to feel completely relaxed and she believes providing you with a service best for your comfort level is where she wants to excel.

Other Information

*For your information: Litigation is initiated when one party files suit against another. The proceedings structured - formal and are governed by rules, such as rules of evidence and procedure, which are established by the legislature. Outcomes are decided by a judge and/or jury, based on the perceived factual questions of the case and the applicable law. The verdict of the court is binding, not advisory; however, both parties have the right to appeal the judgment to a higher court.

Rather than involving antagonistic parties or opposing interests seeking an outcome most favorable to their position, I prefer to have a conversation with the parties to find out the BEST possible solution that fits both or all of their needs, desires, or interests without the expensive fees and time wasted in court.
