About Us


Mary W. Lyons, J.D., LL.M.

A mediator who has 15 years’ experience as a business and tax attorney as well as 13 years’ experience as  a business owner, is able to immediately understand the types of disputes that business owners face and the issues involved (keeping costs down).  In her legal career, she has worked extensively with business and tax transactions as an attorney for the government, as well as a Fortune 500 company. While she found the role of advocate challenging and rewarding, resolving disputes has become her true passion and calling.  

Mary has mediated hundreds of cases, and is highly valued for her ability to connect personally with everyone at the table while drilling down on the issues that can adjust parties’ positions and guide them toward settlement. She is very proactive in helping parties prepare for the mediation by identifying the information that is critical to the negotiations, helping them evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their positions, and will work tirelessly to facilitate a resolution.  Mary has over 200 hours of mediation and negotiation training from numerous institutions.
