Jacqueline Abel is well known to Oregon’s mediation community.  Few have more experience and exposure to mediation.

It was my pleasure to work with her and learn from her when she served as Mediation Coordinator for Multnomah County’s Court.

Upon her retirement, she was kind enough to talk with me about a wide variety of topics.

Unfortunately I had to chop our 47 minute interview from about 6,500 words to about 1,400 words, which the Oregon State Bar Bulletin published.

Enjoy the interview.  Jacqueline shares many insights on best practices and what distinguishes s a good mediator.
