From the blog of Nancy Hudgins
My friend and colleague Paul Merlyn has launched a new blog called Wires Crossed. Paul is a well-respected, accomplished mediator in Northern California. He has three great websites: New Resolution, which features a varied and general mediation practice, CID Resolution, which features disputes involving homeowners associations, tenants in common, condo conversions and homeowner/contractor disputes, and San Francisco Real Estate Brain, which covers all things real estate. I hope you’ll check them out.
When I was a new mediator, Paul was kind enough to join my mediation study group. His calm and supportive demeanor as well as his intellectual and intuitive grasp of mediation best practices were helpful to all of us. He was also my mentor on the Board of Directors of the Association for Dispute Resolution of Northern California. And did I mention that he is a delightful human being?
Congratulations, Paul! I look forward to reading your posts!
Howard Bellman talks about how he analyzes cases using a metaphor of treatment and diagnosis. He compares the analytical process between complicated, multi-party mediations to less complex mediations.By Howard Bellman
