Description of Practice

Meghan offers facilitative mediation, facilitation, and conflict coaching services. She specializes in mediating emotionally complex relationships, including premarital and cohabitation agreements, the dissolution of marriage and domestic partnerships, and co-parenting agreements. She also works on family, interpersonal and business matters, neighbor and community related cases, peer and coworker relationships, landlords/tenant and HOA issues, and business-client conflicts, including complex multiparty disputes. Meghan believes that every conflict is an opportunity to enhance understanding and repair relationships.

Professional Background

In 2011, Meghan became a mediator and began focusing her practice on alternative dispute resolution. In 2014, she joined forces with former colleague and friend, Anne Mania, to launch North Star Mediation Partners LLP, serving clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to her private mediation practice, Meghan volunteers for SEEDS Community Resolution Center, a nonprofit serving the Alameda County area. Meghan serves as a community mediator, a coach for mediators-in-training, and a court-based mediator in the Civil Harassment Court of Alameda County, mediating emotionally charged cases in which one party is seeking a restraining order. Before launching a dedicated mediation practice, Meghan worked as a public interest attorney. Awarded an Equal Justice Works Fellowship, Meghan worked at the National Center for Youth Law in Oakland, where she designed and implemented the Juvenile Mental Health Court Project to secure services and benefits for adjudicated youth, working closely with judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and service providers in a collaborative court setting. At Rosen, Bien, Galvan & Grunfeld LLP, Meghan continued her work on behalf of the incarcerated, litigating civil rights class actions designed to improve the terrible conditions in California’s prison and working closely with stakeholders to develop new policies and procedures for her clients.

Degrees

Cornell University, B.A., magna cum laude, 1996 UCLA School of Law, J.D., Public Interest Law and Policy Program, 2002 Admitted to the California Bar, 2002

Approach

Meghan believes that most conflicts can be resolved with direct and respectful communication, but sometimes it’s hard to find a solution on your own. Meghan provides the structure, support, and confidentiality needed for difficult conversations. In mediation, Meghan facilitates a cooperative problem-solving process, ensuring that each participant has the opportunity to raise and discuss the issues important to them. The process is confidential, enabling the participants to talk openly and explore a full range of ideas for resolving the conflict. By helping participants to communicate constructively, Meghan empowers them to design durable solutions that meet everyone’s needs.
