Description of Practice
We have a particular interest in working with the unique issues and challenges facing parents in neurodiverse families and families with special needs, including those having 2E (Twice Exceptional), GTLD (gifted talented learning differences), Autism spectrum (ASD), dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other language processing differences, social / emotional regulation issues, and the variety of other learning and behavioral differences. We also work with families living with chronic illness and similar challenges.
What sets us apart from other practices is our focus on mediation as more than a means for “amicable disengagement.”
Our approach is built upon our belief that constructively engaging on conflict can create opportunities when parents and families are empowered to step back and, with support, examine what’s possible while taking into account their needs, goals, and values.
Doing so requires a willingness to engage that often can be difficult when conflict sets in. It can be transformative to have a supportive process with a neutral resource who can facilitate the conversation to help get through the sticking points.
We appreciate that every family and every business we work with is unique. Our goal is to provide a process that helps them find ways to align on the future.
Mr. Feig’s extensive toolset upon which he can draw for the benefit of the mediation clients he serves sets him apart from so many practitioners with “traditional” notions of what mediation can achieve. He is trained in both family and commercial mediation, and has 25 years as an accomplished attorney and corporate general counsel having built a reputation as a hands-on, trusted partner who “gets” his clients and who helps them prevent crises and create opportunities.
Combining all of this with a background in engineering and as a parent in a Neurodiverse family, Mr. Feig helps his clients expand their perspectives to see the bigger picture so that they can better explore what’s possible.

We provide a process for constructive, restorative dialogue intended to empower our clients to move past the points where they get "stuck", so that they can:
Understand each other's perspectives, interests, needs and goals
Evaluate possibilities in a collaborative, informed manner, and when possible,
Align on the future.
In my experience, having a neutral resource to help navigate difficult issues and facilitate constructive conversations, and who can help explore where goals and interests could realign, can be transformative.
