Thoughts on Orlando (by Scott Douglas, Chair of the LGBT Law Section)

Friends and colleagues:As I write this, it is just after 3:00 am in Orlando. The candles from tonight’s vigil are still burning amid the roses in our garden where we set them down in the fading light of this sad day and watched the sky bleed red at sunset. Like all of us, my husband and I awoke this morning to the shock and horror of news both too familiar and wholly foreign: unprecedented savagery unleashed against our community, a hail of bullets cutting down 50 of us: our friends, our…See More

A Lesson on Friendship and Respect from the U.S. Supreme Court

Whether you loved him or hated him, agreed with his elegant legal opinions or fervently disagreed with them, it is undeniable that Justice Antonin Scalia was one of the most influential jurists in American legal history. His death on Saturday has sent waves – of shock, dismay, and jubilation – through the country.At a time when political partisanship is at an unprecedented height, what most intrigues me is the much-chronicled friendship between Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice…See More

Joint Sessions in Mediation - “Prisoners’ Dilemma” or Opportunities for Better Outcomes?

One of the panel presentations at last week’s ABA ADR Conference in Seattle led me to wonder whether attorneys perceive mediation negotiations, especially in joint sessions, as a type of "Prisoners' Dilemma". You may recall the setup for this classic example of game theory. Two co-conspirators (A and B) are arrested and held in separate cells with no means of contacting the other. The prosecutors do not have sufficient evidence to convict the two on the principal charge, so they offer each…See More

The Space Between (by Andrew Kidde)

Here at the Bellevue Mediation Program our work is first and foremost a matter of listening to stories.   We have an unspoken contract with our clients – you tell us your story, we’ll try to help you.   Our volunteers are paid in stories.  To be a good mediator, you need a hunger for stories, because that’s what sustains you, and also because your clients can tell if you’re not interested.When you pick up the phone and start listening to stories at our office, you will hear from people who are…See More

Bio
Sasha S. Philip is a licensed attorney who practiced civil litigation for 13 years before becoming a certified professional mediator and arbitrator, based on the conviction that conflict is most effectively resolved without the emotional and financial cost of litigation.

Ms. Philip is trained and experienced in mediations of litigated cases as well as the facilitative community mediation model. As such, Ms. Philip offers mediations both of cases that are in litigation and of disputes in which no formal lawsuit has been filed, and utilizes both evaluative and facilitative techniques to tailor mediations to her clients' unique needs. She is also available to act as an agreed-upon arbitrator in private arbitrations, MAR arbitrations, and UM/UIM arbitrations.

Ms. Philip received a B.A. in Psychology and Political Science from Vassar College and a J.D. from Tulane University Law School. She obtained her Professional Mediation Skills Training Certificate from the University of Washington School of Law in 2007, completed a rigorous WMA-approved mediation practicum and certification under the joint auspices of the Bellevue Neighborhood Mediation Program and the Seattle Federal Executive Board's ADR Consortium, and has acquired extensive additional training in conciliation, negotiation and mediation techniques from various accredited sources. She is also certified as a Rule 39.1 Neutral by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.

Ms. Philip draws on her extensive experience representing parties in mediations and arbitrations of litigated cases in Washington State and Federal courts for her own mediation and arbitration practice. In addition, she is an adjunct professor at Seattle University School of Law, is active as a mediation coach and volunteer mediator – mediating discrimination claims for the EEOC, workplace conflicts at federal, state and local government agencies for the Federal Executive Board's ADR Consortium, small claims court cases for the King County Dispute Resolution Center, and neighborhood disputes for the City of Bellevue Neighborhood Mediation Program – and acts as an arbitrator for the King County and Snohomish County Superior Courts in mandatory arbitration cases.

Ms. Philip was selected as a "Rising Star" by Washington Law & Politics' Super Lawyers magazine in 2006, 2008, and 2012-2013. In 2014, Ms. Philip was named as the sole “Rising Star” in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

When not serving her clients as a mediator or arbitrator, Ms. Philip enjoys singing with the Seattle Symphony Chorale, cooking, kayaking, yoga and urban farming. She is married with two teenage stepsons, and is fluent in German.
