“Given her background handling employment cases, Phyllis has an excellent grasp of employment law. But what has impressed me the most was her willingness to educate herself on noneconomic damages and apply that knowledge to her growing mediation practice. As an employment lawyer with thirty plus years of trial experience, it is frustrating to go into mediation and have the mediator dismiss your claim for noneconomic damages. To meet a mediator who is not just willing to consider the value of emotional distress damages, but is seeking to educate herself on the way juries process claims for noneconomic damages, is inspiring. I am not surprised that Phyllis has had great success in settling cases. I would encourage my colleagues to run, not walk, to schedule a mediation with Phyllis.”
