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.

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

Posted on June 13, 2016 at 10:30am 0 Comments

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,…
