McCarthy Fingar's Mediation & Arbitration Practice Group provides responsive, skilled, and compassionate services to help clients resolve their controversies. Our well-rounded team, all of whom are attorneys, consists of seasoned professionals with diverse backgrounds and experience.
Clients and attorneys can choose among the various members of our team.
Judge Sondra M. Miller, the firm's Chief Counsel, leads our Mediation & Arbitration Practice Group. Judge Miller served as a New York State Judge for twenty-five years (Appellate Division, Supreme Court - 1990-2005; Supreme Court, Ninth Judicial District - 1987-1989; Westchester County Family Court – 1983-1986). Her experience has allowed her to understand the litigation process well and the economic and other perils the parties face when they proceed to a decision by the courts rather than to a mediated settlement. She is a practiced mediator and arbitrator.
Abby P. Rosmarin is Mediation Counsel to our firm. Abby’s effectiveness as a mediator stems from her training and experience in law, conflict resolution, and counseling. As an attorney, she is skilled at finding creative solutions to the competing demands of business pressures and legal realities. As a mental health professional, she is experienced in helping clients overcome the barriers to resolving emotionally charged conflicts.
Kristen Mackay Pennessi is an associate at our firm. Kristen has concentrated her practice helping clients who are involved in matrimonial and family disputes. As part of her work, Kristen has been involved in all aspects of negotiations and settlements related to divorce and family matters.
