Description of Practice

Welcome. At Melito-Dezan Law and Mediation, we want to work with the parties to facilitate constructive discussion that may lead to resolution of issues. I have been a Mediator since 2004. Additionally, I have been a Massachusetts Attorney since 2004 and a New Hampshire Attorney since 2017. After working in the securities regulation industry for a number of years, I decided to operate a private law and mediation practice to serve members of my community. I consider mediation cases in many areas of dispute and offer hours outside of the standard work day. I am also a member of the FINRA Arbitration panel, and can provide arbitration services to clients. My office is located in Salem, NH, which is a convenient location for both Massachusetts and New Hampshire clients.

At Melito-Dezan Law and Mediation, Heather operates from the standpoint of facilitation. I see my role as Mediator is to aid and facilitate discussion of a dispute by both parties with a look toward a mutually agreeable resolution, realizing that there may be several issues and parties may not come to a resolution regarding all issues presented.


Standard fee is $250/hour, which is typically split between the parties. In certain instances, I offer fees on a sliding scale.

Other Information

I have the flexibility to offer my services at non-traditional hours. If evenings or weekends, work better for you, we can schedule that.
