About Dana Louise Curtis Esq.
For 22 years, I have devoted my career as a lawyer to helping parties resolve their conflicts efficiently, effectively and respectfully. I believe the quality of a mediated resolution, and of the mediation process, to be as important to the parties as the fact of resolution.

Professional Experience
Principal, Elder Mediation Group
Elder Mediation Group was founded in 2008 to provide mediation services and training in matters related to elders. Ms. Curtis' extensive experience in this field has taught her that mediation has the potential to help older people, their families and their caregivers make important decisions or resolve controversies in ways that create stronger relationships and a greater sense of well-being for older people and/or their families.
