Shalanna Pirtle

Certified mediator, adviser, counselor, investigator, speaker, trainer.

I serve as a trusted mediator and employment attorney. I bring an uncommon perspective to this work in light of my varied professional and personal experiences. I work with parties to find a resolution, no matter how big or small the dispute, with patience, empathy, creativity, and perseverance.

Certified as a mediator by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission, I mediate disputes of varying subject matters at the state and federal levels, both before and during litigation. Mediation is an important tool that can be useful for parties in the resolution of all disputes, and it is needed now more than ever given the current backlog at courts around the country due to the impact of COVID-19. Effective mediation is about helping parties sort out their issues, needs, goals, and the ultimate root of the conflict.
