Since 1994, Joan Morrow has limited her professional practice to mediation, handling complex business and employment law disputes. She was previously a litigation partner with the former Rider, Bennett firm in Minneapolis, where she worked from 1978 to 1994 with an emphasis on employment litigation and counseling and insurance coverage disputes. In 1994, she founded her own firm dedicated to dispute resolution. She relocated to Virginia in 2001 to become an East Coast-based mediator, mediating in Virginia, the mid-Atlantic States and Washington, person and nationally via videoconferencing.

Mrs. Morrow has conducted over 1200 mediations in commercial and employment cases with a very high resolution rate. She has mediated cases involving all aspects of employment law (including FLSA Collective Actions, discrimination, harassment, defamation, tortious interference and non-compete agreements); law firm, professional firm and business dissolutions; breach of contract, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty; and malpractice. She has also mediated numerous multi-party and class action cases and over 300 sexual harassment/sexual assault cases including clergy sexual abuse cases. Joan also regularly mediates cases via video-conferencing link, which has proven to be very successful in settling cases in remote locations.
