FAQ: What Do You Do?

At The Law Studio, we help people recover lost time–at least figuratively. No, we don’t have a time machine, and we can’t actually restore to your life the time you wasted worrying about a conflict. We can’t send you back in time to change your present circumstances, but we can work with you to:

  1. Forgive yourself for having conflicts, making mistakes, and being an imperfect human, like the rest of us.
  2. Acknowledge yourself, so your life isn’t limited by waiting for acknowledgment from others (which might not come, or might not come in the form you want).
  3. Forgive others for making choices or taking actions that had terrible consequences and for being imperfect humans, like the rest of us.
  4. Free the emotions you’ve been told to suppress or otherwise are afraid to express.
  5. Clear your mind of fears, worry, and negativity–every time it creates those experiences for you.
  6. Assume you know nothing about anything in a conflict so you can review it anew and see possibilities for resolution.
  7. Listen with your third ear for the thoughts, beliefs, expectations, and needs driving a conflict.

We use a holistic, integrative approach that draws from our experience in arbitration, business, education, family, human resources, law, mediation, religion, spirituality, sport, or whatever inspires you. We don’t limit ourselves or you.
