Mediation Training

About Us

 Linda Liljedahl graduated from Tulane Law School in 1979 & has engaged in general civil practice for 33 years. Her mediation and ADR practice began officially in 1991. She likes to say "officially" because even before Linda was taught mediation and other dispute resolution techniques, she found herself constantly trying to find ways to assist and support disputants in court cases and potential lawsuits find ways to work out their differences before advancing to actual trial. While never fearing to represent her client(s) in court if litigation could not be avoided,  Liljedahl had observed and knew that once a case had finally reached the point where trial was unavoidable, all parties had lost. There are no true winners in court.
    Liljedahl has led the training in
General & Advanced ADR Training, General Mediation Training, Advanced Mediation Training, Family Parenting Dispute Training, Beginning and Senior Negotiation Training, Advanced Postal Service Mediators (REDRESS) Training, Juvenile Dependency Mediation Training, Mediator Due Process Hearing Officer (LA) Training, Early Neutral Evaluator Training, & Arbitrator Training in several areas of civil disputes.
