Conflict has a way of taking over your life. You wake at 3am in a panic, worried about that co-worker who's been harassing you or reeling from an argument with your spouse or family member. Fisher Law Practice provides the space and support to help folks deal with these hostilities and figure out a way to move forward. We're hired by individuals, couples, families, and companies who want to get to the root of the conflict so they can find solutions that fit their needs. Some matters are flat fee, and we can give you the total cost of our work during the consultation. Other matters are hourly and we give you our best estimate of how much your fees will be.
Mediation is a confidential process where people come together with a facilitator to discuss their differences and develop comprehensive solutions. The process enables people to address issues quickly and at a fraction of the cost of the traditional legal process. But more than monetary savings, mediation is a valuable tool to help people feel heard and find a common ground.
Individual Coaching allows us to work one-on-one to take a deep dive into a specific conflict or situation. We’ll talk about the what’s going on, the power dynamics, the impact on you, and the range of emotions at play. We’ll work together to identify which solutions meet your needs and develop the skills to get you there.
Mediation for Workplace Disputes: Fisher Law Practice provides a la carte conflict resolution services, like executive coaching, mediation, and conflict de-escalation training. We can even be a regular presence in your office, coming in once a month to provide your staff with reliable support. We help employees to clear the air, listen to one another, and develop satisfying solutions that fit their needs. We help businesses avoid costly, disruptive and staff changes… or worse, lawsuits.
Executive Coaching: Most of our coaching clients come to us when they are at a crossroads. Some have recently taken on an Executive role and want help strategizing about how they can get the best from their staff, set key performance indicators for themselves, and manage up. Others are deeper into their Executive leadership, but want to re-calibrate to make sure their leadership styles and work habits are aligned with their core values.
Family Mediation: Some people try to work out agreements on their own, but these outlines often lack clarity and specificity. Uncertainty leads to poor communication that can become toxic. We work with people to create thorough, clear separation, divorce, and custody agreements that set expectations and provide stability and relief for all involved.
