Dan Simon has been the director of Simon Mediation since he founded it in 1998. Dan helps with divorces, parenting differences, real estate issues, employment cases, business disputes, and neighbor to neighbor conflicts.
Dan's advanced training in psychology and law allows him to help with all aspects of conflict. Minnesota Law and Politics featured Dan Simon in the February 2000 issue, calling his process "a kinder gentler mediation." The St. Paul Pioneer Press profiled Dan in 2003 as "the man in the middle."
As a teacher and practitioner of the transformative approach, Dan Simon helps parties have a constructive conversation about their differences. He received his law degree, cum laude, from the University of Minnesota School of Law, his M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Minnesota, and his B.A., with honors, from the University of California at Berkeley. Although he is licensed to practice law in Minnesota, he prefers to practice mediation exclusively. Before creating Twin Cities Mediation, Dan worked as a business litigation attorney and as a family business consultant. Throughout his career, he has sought better ways to intervene in cases of highly emotional conflict.
