Ms. Setzer is trained in family law mediation and has extensive experience serving as both a Mediator and a Consulting attorney. As a Mediator, Ms. Setzer acts as a neutral. She does not and cannot (ethically) provide advice to either party. The role of the mediator is to help facilitate the parties in reaching agreement on all relevant issues in their case.

In her role as a Consulting attorney, Ms. Setzer can provide advice to her clients. She provides advice through all stages of the mediation process, which might mean that Ms. Setzer attends mediation sessions or it might mean that she provides advice behind the scenes.

Mediation is a form of Alternate Dispute Resolution. It is confidential, meaning that what is said during mediation cannot be used outside of the mediation setting- for example, in court. It is ultimately the parties who direct the mediation process and reach a settlement.

During your consultation, Ms. Setzer will answer your questions about mediation and she will explain the mediation process.
