Martinsburg, WV, December 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Excitement is in the air this holiday season at the offices of attorney-mediator Brenda Waugh, having been selected as one of the top fifteen mediators in the DC area by Expertise.
Expertise is a national resource based in Seattle that compiles human-curated lists of the top local professionals across different industries near major U.S. metropolitan areas. They achieve this by researching every business in a particular industry within that area, manually weeding out lower performing companies first. The companies that make the first cut are then graded on six essential criteria: reputation, credibility, experience, availability, professionalism, and engagement. Only the highest-scoring professionals make the final cut. Expertise’s staff carries out initial research on the companies, and the final top businesses are hand-selected as well, rather than being a computer-generated list.
Brenda Waugh is one of only 15 mediators selected from 142 in the area. She earned praise from Expertise's team of curators, who cited over 25 years of experience in mediation and conducting conducted dozens of seminars on legal issues for groups such as the Association of Conflict Resolution and the Virginia Mediation Network.
As a law and mediation firm, working with a growing number of select clients, Ms. Waugh prides herself on bringing a full spectrum of conflict resolution options to her work. She is better positioned to use litigation only as necessary in resolving conflicts, and even then to employ such methods as win-win or interest based negotiation to find the best resolution for clients.
With offices in both Washington DC and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, Brenda has a unique understanding of the varied needs in conflict resolution of the greater DC area. She offers free monthly seminars to help clients to understand options to litigation including collaborative law and mediation.
