Sitting With, or Running From, Conflict
 
Conflict creates special challenges to resolving disputes in the legal process.  Conflict can arise in relationships with clients, other lawyers and/or third parties.  All of these can work against an efficient and effective resolution to the issues.   Many people are uncomfortable being exposed  to conflict or do not know how to deal successfully with it.  Understanding the conflicts and how to best manage the emotional throes that result will help all parties work toward the best resolution.
