Naomi has a solid business background and in-house legal department experience at The Home Depot. She also has a traditional employment law firm background where she represented both employers and employees, which has given her real-world insight into the perspectives of both the plaintiff and the defendant.
Naomi is an active mediator who assists and challenges the parties to recognize the strengths, weaknesses, and values of their cases, as well as the risks of not reaching a settlement through mediation.
