20 Years of Helping Resolve Tough Disputes
and Finding Practical Solutions to Complex Problems

About Eric Phillips



As a certified mediation attorney with over 20 years of litigation experience, Eric has seen the effects litigation and arbitration can have on both parties and their counsel.

Court fees, attorney fees, delays by the court, extensive time to reach a judgment, challenges at having to explain complex topics to juries, and frustration by both parties as a result of the decision can take its toll on everyone.

In most cases, neither party is happy with the outcome, the relationship between the parties is ruined, a dispute is shared publicly, the losing party may not have the funds to pay, and quite possibly, the case could be appealed, extending the nightmare.

That’s not even taking into account the emotional toll that is being placed upon the disputing parties.  Stress due to high-conflict litigation affects your relationships, makes you less productive at work, can keep you awake at night, and expends time, energy, and focus that could be spent elsewhere.  Productive efforts wane as you prepare for a court room battle.  Money spent on litigation and arbitration is diverted from more productive business opportunities or personal spending.
