Contact Christine to schedule a mediation


Mediation is a voluntary, non-binding process where a third-party neutral attempts to facilitate a settlement of a dispute without the need for further litigation.  The United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, the federal court in the Pittsburgh area, requires parties to civil cases to go through some sort of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process early in their cases. Most parties choose mediation because of the flexibility of the process and its relatively high level of success. 

Attorney Christine T. Elzer has represented more than 200 clients in mediations.  From that experience, she has learned what types of skills a mediator should have, and what works and doesn't work in mediation. She brings that experience to the table both as a counselor to her clients in mediations, and now as a mediator.  

Christine has completed mediation training offered by the Alternative Group, a well-respected mediation practice group.  She is an approved mediator for the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.  She also provides pro bono mediation services for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ( EEOC).
