Christine understands that the human element is key to resolving employment claims.  She focuses on understanding the emotional content so that she can guide the parties to make informed and rational decisions about their options.  She normally meets separately with each side but, depending on the dynamics of each case, may encourage parties and counsel to communicate directly with each other in open session in order to further mutual understanding or explore non-monetary settlement terms.
