Our Mission

In her twenty-seven years of experience as a litigation attorney, Maureen Dougherty has witnessed how prolonged litigation can be devastating to families, waste vast savings, and disenchant even the “winning” litigants with an overburdened court process.

In 2009, Maureen began incorporating mediation and the collaborative process in her law practice. She went on to establish Dougherty Mediation Group in 2011 as a constructive alternative to litigation. She passionately believes that mediation is a far more equitable and productive process for dispute resolution.

The professionals of the Dougherty Mediation Group practice mediation in the purest sense, and all have extensive experience and expertise in family, estate, and corporate law. This provides every session with an added perspective, while maintaining the integrity of the mediation process.

A Winning Team

While the team members at Dougherty Mediation Group come from diverse backgrounds and bring to the table their own unique strengths, all are united in their appreciation of mediation as a form of conflict resolution that ultimately best serves the interests of their clients.
