Review Sharon O'Day

About Me

Family conflict is the most difficult situations that most of us can face.  Whether it is conflict with your current spouse, your former spouse, your siblings and parents or your adult children, the disagreements can lead to stress that invades all aspects of your life.  These conflicts, when turned over to the legal system by contested divorce, post divorce litigation, probate or guardianship conflict all can result in costly escalation with limited positive outcomes.  My practice focuses on assisting parties to reach positive outcomes to such disagreements through mediation or collaborative legal representation.  These alternatives to normal litigation reduce the stress of conflict for everyone involved and are less expensive and take less time.  I have been a practicing attorney for over twenty years and have learned that these alternative dispute resolution techniques are often the best solution and an opportunity for all parties to achieve a win-win, rather than a judge imposing a solution that meets no ones needs.

  • Scott Kenneth Petersen

    Sharon served as a mediator in a very difficult case in which my client was involved. We were fortunate to have Sharon as a mediator, as a settlement was obtained that I believe was in the best interests of all involved. Prior to mediation, I had my doubts as to whether the case would resolve and but for Sharon's services, I don't think it would have. It was a pleasure to deal with her and I would recommend her as a mediator in the future.
