Approach

In some cases, parties need a mediator who will facilitate their conversations with one another, while leaving them to manage the substantive aspects of their dispute. In other instances, parties benefit from a mediator who will have the professional strength and legal sophistication to compel them to evaluate the merits of a case. Danielle is skilled with this broad range of approaches to mediating, allowing her to apply techniques that are responsive as each case develops. During this process, Danielle recognizes the need some parties have to work through the emotional components of their dispute; but she is also outcome-oriented and remains focused on efficiently progressing toward practical solutions. Overall Danielle works to ensure that every party understands and is fully able to participate in the mediation process. As an arbitrator, Danielle is experienced at handling all phases of the adjudication process. She attentively manages prehearing matters, conducts efficient hearings that produce thorough records, and issues decisions that give parties the ability to understand the outcome and move forward with clear direction. As an organizational problem solver, Danielle has encountered a variety of complex situations. She designs custom approaches to personnel and process challenges that are based on an assessment of the unique circumstances in which they have arisen.
