Conflict Resolution Services

“Conflict is inevitable, combat is optional.” – Max Lucado

Conflict in our relationships, communities, or organizations is inevitable. We have choice in our response and attitude towards those conflicts. We can choose to see the conflict as an opportunity to shed those habits that are not working and try something new to address our new challenges and circumstances. To arrive at this place, however, we often need the assistance of an outside party to facilitate and guide the conversation with those with whom we are in conflict. This is the role of a mediator and conflict coach.

Abby Brown is both a practicing attorney and trained mediator, facilitator, and conflict coach. Abby is an adjunct facilitator and mediator with Brave Conversations, LLC.

With a decade of experience in water and natural resource law, and almost two decades of experience working collaboratively with diverse groups and individuals in educational and legal settings, Abby’s skill set positions her to help clients approach their conflicts with curiosity, integrity, and collaboration. She strives to help clients recognize the vast potential for opportunity in conflict, rather than viewing that conflict as a roadblock.

While the majority of Abby’s mediation and facilitation services through ARB Law Group focus on disputes in the water, environmental and natural resources arena, Abby is trained in, and offers, several other types mediation and facilitation services.
