Krista Gottlieb, Esq., Mediator, Arbitrator, Attorney and Counselor at Law

Our mission is to find the most cost and time effective means of resolving the issues and conflict parties face, whether through mediation to help preserve or resume relationships, serving as decision making arbitrator, or being a counselor and advocate.

The “best” process and solution will vary depending on the situation, needs and abilities of the participants, always on a customized and individual basis. Often a successful result can be obtained through strategic discussions and negotiations. Sometimes a more adversarial approach is dictated. Frequently, the best acceptable solution to a dispute can be found through mediation or arbitration. We strategize and provide the resources to engage the appropriate process for you.

“Krista goes the extra mile...”

“I highly recommend Krista Gottlieb as an extraordinary mediator...”

“Without hesitancy, I highly recommend Krista as a mediator in any dispute you may have...”
