After thirteen years in traditional litigation, CMR founder, Kathryn Snyder. J.D., realized the legal process wasn’t suited for all people or situations. Because ADR offers different options for productive dialogue, clients could be better served through an ADR process such as mediation.
So in 1997, following her intuition, Kathryn opened her business in alternate dispute resolution – which is just another way of saying that she created a space that allows people to address their problems, manage the conflict, and hopefully resolve them in a way that is balanced, transparent, and makes sense to all involved.
Not afraid to confront conflict, Kathryn invites clients to explore their challenges, uncover the real interest and needs, and have an open conversation about what really matters.
Kathryn has navigated divorce and co-parenting at both a personal and professional level. She understands that mediation involves a healthy and constructive dialogue between all parties, whether done outside the legal system or in conjunction with litigation.
