The Full Story

I'm  Lisa Zappala Wood.

I have been a licensed attorney in MA and NH since 2004. In 2012, I trained as a mediator and finally found real inspiration in my work. Following my Basic Mediation Course, I began volunteering at a non-profit handling mediations of small claims and pre-criminal matters. Later, I also took courses in landlord/tenant mediation, divorce mediation, elder/family mediation, as well as other mediation specialties and in the last 5 years have expanded my skillset to include conflict coaching, facilitation, ombuds services and a conflict resolution training professional.

I have been the Executive Director at a non-profit Mediation in Massachusetts since 2018. I am also trained as a Collaborative Attorney.

Having moved to NH in the past few years, I am working to move my conflict resolution career here as well. I am available for remote sessions anywhere in the State of NH and in person services in or near Waterville Valley, NH or at Circuit Courts for court referred matters. 

Though I have been practicing in Massachusetts for over 10 years in a variety of case types and courts, NH requires different processes and applications. In 2022, I was approved as a panel member on two different Circuit court lists, namely small claims and minor guardianship. I am apprenticing to become a certified family mediator in New Hampshire. I am currently a member of the New Hampshire Bar Association, Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, Academy of Family Mediators, and the Mass Council of Family Mediation. I continue to learn from others in order to maintain and expand my skills. I would love to to hear from you and find out how I can help you resolve your conflict.
