WAMS is delighted that Teresa Sidlowski has joined the organization to provide staffing support in the Tacoma office and bookkeeping help with the Lemon Law and other programs based in the Seattle office. Teresa has an extensive background in accounting, finance and office management, so WAMS is fortunate to have someone with her experience on a part-time basis.
In other news, WAMS mediator Bill Joyce recently contributed to a regional survey of mediators, attorneys and judges regarding confidentiality in the mediation process. The study was conducted by the Albers School of Business & Economics at Seattle University. The findings from that study were just published as “The Promise of Confidentiality in Mediation: Practitioners’ Perspectives” in The Journal of Dispute Resolution (Vol. 2009, No.1), a publication of the University of Missouri School of Law.
