Speaker: Stacie Hausner
Stacie Feldman Hausner, Esq. has successfully mediated hundreds of cases in the areas of business, personal injury, employment, real estate, construction defect, and entertainment law. She has an exceptionally high settlement rate due to her tenacity, calm and friendly demeanor, creative “out of the box” thinking, and keen insight. Ms. Hausner draws on her broad mediation experience, as well as her extensive study and understanding of the fields of negotiation and mediation.
After a 15-year career as a litigator, practicing law at both defense and plaintiff firms, Ms. Hausner launched her mediation practice because she understood the perspectives and interests of the opposing sides to a dispute, as well as the benefits of alternative dispute resolution. She received an LL.M. in Dispute Resolution from the Straus Institute at Pepperdine University School of Law, and prior to joining ADR Services, Inc., she successfully mediated hundreds settlement conferences at the Santa Monica Courthouse.
Ms. Hausner is enthusiastic in her passion for mediation, so when she is not mediating, she spends her time teaching mediation skills to practitioners, attorneys and law students. She is an Adjunct Faculty Member at Pepperdine School of Law (Straus) where she teaches “Mediation Theory and Practice” and trains judges and attorneys who are becoming mediators through the Straus program “Mediating the Litigated Case.” Ms. Hausner also trains the mediators on the Central District Court panel of mediators.
