Professional Women's Alliance of CT (PWA-CT) co-chair Karen Stansbury moves her mediation law practice to Litchfield and looks to spearhead new membership for PWA-CT in the area.

Online PR News – 07-April-2010 – – Litchfield, CT - Fairfield attorney and Professional Women’s Alliance of CT (PWA-CT) co-founder Karen Stansbury is proud to announce the opening of her brand new Litchfield mediation law practice with her move to the area on April 29th.
“I'm thrilled to be relocating to such a beautiful, peaceful part of Connecticut,” says Stansbury. “And I’m thrilled to be able to offer my clients the opportunity to experience all the benefits that a mediation law practice has to offer.”
Stansbury is a respected attorney who spent over 20 years in successful litigation practice before announcing last year that she is now focused solely on providing mediation for family and civil disputes. Her decision mirrors a larger trend that, over the past 25 years, has seen increasing numbers of couples turn to divorce mediation as part of a broader quest to find more civilized and efficient alternatives to courtroom divorce proceedings, according to the National Conflict Resolution Center.
Stansbury is also a co-founder, along with Westport financial planner Elizabeth Cox, CFP™, of the Professional Women’s Alliance of CT. PWA-CT is an alliance of professional women committed to supporting individuals before, during and after major life transitions. Stansbury and Cox launched the group in 2008 in direct response to a real need they saw among clients for comprehensive, caring guidance as they navigated such life transitions as parenthood, job loss, reentry to the work force, retirement, divorce and widowhood.
“The goal of PWA-CT is to educate the public about financial, legal and emotional self-empowerment,” says Stansbury.
Today PWA-CT is made up of members licensed in the areas of accounting, career coaching, finance, law, mental health, mortgages, real estate, insurance, retirement planning and taxes. The group is committed to pooling expertise and resources in order to provide individuals, facing major life transitions, with a multifaceted service not available elsewhere. PWA-CT members also give talks, conduct workshops, write articles and are presently writing an e-book.
The group is looking to expand into Litchfield County, already having members in Fairfield and New Haven Counties, and Stansbury notes, “We'd love to hear from interested professional women who work in the areas of helping people through life transitions.”
