Speaking Engagements


Elizabeth successfully mediated a resolution using her knowledge and professionalism. She also demonstrated significant patience, understanding and the ability to manage difficult parties with unusual family dynamics. Without these traits, a resolution would not have been possible. I would attend with her again and I have already recommended her services to others.

I am thrilled with this service and very grateful for Elizabeth Hyde's expertise and experience. She has resolved the 10 year divorce in one all day session.
