Western Springs, IL (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
Anne Chestney Mudd is a noted mediator and collaborative divorce lawyer in Cook, DuPage and Will counties, and one of the first to serve on the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois’s board of directors. She has recently decided to establish her online profile by joining the premium website for attorney-mediators, Mediation.com.
“My approach is facilitative, not adversarial, and we work as a team. Participants find me open and approachable regarding all facets of the negotiation process. I encourage participants to express and understand each other’s point-of-view and then we work towards a resolution that respects both individuals,” said Anne.
Past and present clients assert that, as a mediator, Anne intuitively grasps what is important and as such is able to leverage that understanding to build a comprehensive and flexible working solution based on common ground between parties. Her practice encompasses family law, child custody, alimony disputes, collaborative divorce, legal separation, co-parenting, family law, prenuptial agreements and probate.
After training in mediation at Pepperdine University School of Law and the College of DuPage, Anne served as a mediation intern with Margaret S. Powers, an internationally-known mediator and trainer of mediators. An advocate of giving back, she is currently an Adjunct Professor in Family Law Mediation, Transnational Negotiation and Mediation, and Alternative Dispute Resolution at the John Marshall Law School.
Anne earned her JD cum laude from John Marshall Law School and a master’s degree, with honors, from the University of Louisville. She is a member of the American Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, DuPage County Bar Association, the West Suburban Bar Association, Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois, the Mediation Council of Illinois and the League of Women Voters, as well as other social and community organizations.
