Mediator's Profile

Elliot Hicks

Business Name: Hicks Resolutions, PLLC

Mediation works when the parties want it to work out. You have to be committed to resolving your disagreements peacefully and thoughtfully. If you can compromise for the good of your family, your financial resources, your mental health and well-being, mediation may be the right solution for you.

Elliot Hicks is an experienced litigation attorney, now offering his services in dispute resolution for more than 20 years. Through his vast experience, he knows the true cost of litigation, both emotionally and financially. Litigation is too often pursued, but many times, not worth the time, money, and stress.

His former practice consisted entirely of litigation with a focus on:

  • Product liability
  • Premises liability
  • Employment law
  • Corporate and Commercial litigation
  • Insurance law cases
  • Medical malpractice defense
  • Construction Law

Hicks Resolutions has added family mediation because he wants to help you work through the constraints of the law for YOU to generate creative solutions that fit what YOU need. The court can’t decide what’s right for your life better than you can, so Elliot offers mediation services for family law matters involving:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Property division
  • Child and spousal support
  • Visitation
  • Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
