Kathryn Lazar completes 1,000 mediations
September 19, 2019
Kathryn Lazar, founder of MH Mediation, recently completed her one-thousandth mediation. A mediator for nearly 40 years, she founded MH Mediation in 1981, offering mediation for every sort of matrimonial dispute, as well as family, business and estate mediation. Of cases mediated during her tenure, over 90% were resolved successfully.
The 1,000-mediation benchmark, which nearly passed unnoticed, is one of many in Kathryn’s career. She has been honored by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys as one of the Top 10 Female Attorneys in family practice in the United States and by Thomson Reuters as a Superlawyer. In addition to founding MH Mediation, she is a founder of the Hudson Valley Collaborative Divorce Association (2002), the Battered Women’s Law Project (1977), and the Mediation Center of Dutchess County (1982).
She is a frequent speaker and workshop leader for professional audiences, and has several speaking engagements this fall, including in Poughkeepsie September 26 for the Dutchess County Bar Association (“Divorce Today”), in Chicago October 24 at the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (“Protecting the Inheritance Rights of Children of Divorce”) and in Boston November 9 for the Association of Professional Family Mediators (“Radical Candor and Other Communications Strategies”).
