Amy Coopman

Bridge Mediation, LLC

Amy has a track record of national leadership on employment law issues, and she developed a wide range of experience on the defense and insurance side of business and personal injury matters while working for 15 years at a prominent Kansas City law firm representing individuals, businesses and insurance companies in complex litigation throughout the United States.  Amy’s training and background also makes her well-suited to mediate challenging education and nonprofit philanthropy disputes.

“Understanding both sides” is a skill that Amy applies throughout the mediation process.  She has an innate ability to get to the heart of a dispute.  Amy uses various tools to manage difficult emotions, knows how to listen well, asks the right questions, and stays focused on helping the parties find a way to reach a deal and resolve their dispute.

Amy is firmly committed to guiding the parties to a successful resolution.  Her words and actions show respect for all parties, representatives and attorneys involved in the mediation.  They trust her, and as a result, trust themselves to achieve favorable outcomes, even when the stakes are high, the matter is complex, and the parties appear unyielding.

Amy serves on the boards of the following organizations: The M.R. & Evelyn Hudson Foundation, The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Foundation, the Association of Missouri Mediators and The University of Kansas Honors Program Advisory Board.

Amy received her Juris Doctor from the University of Kansas School of Law and her B.A. from the University of Kansas.
