Company: Dovetail Resolutions, LLC
Position: Certified Conflict Coach, Mediator, Facilitator
My passion is helping people with conflict prevention and conflict resolution. I founded Dovetail Resolutions in 2006, after practicing as an attorney and mediator for a number of years. I graduated from Trinity College in 1979 with a B.A. in Economics and then served as a VISTA volunteer in rural Colorado. I received my law degree, cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984. The same year I earned my M.A., also from Penn, in Public Policy Analysis, with a concentration in conflict resolution. My career has included time as a law clerk, private practice of law, service in the public sector, and not-for-profit work. I have served as an adjunct moot court instructor at the University of Connecticut School of Law and as an adjunct professor at the University of New Haven, teaching Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Evidence.
Conflict Coaching in the CINERGY (R) model, mediation, facilitation, and consulting for families and their businesses: succession planning for family businesses, family wealth challenges (including estate planning and settlement issues), and family philanthropy.

Good Lead: My services are often a good resource for trusted advisors who become aware of a client's need for mediation or consulting to deal with a destructive conflict or situation primed for conflict. These advisors can be attorneys, accountants, business bankers, wealth management professionals, business consultants, geriatric care managers, continuing care center staff -- or sometimes a trusted friend.
