About Deborah Besserman

My Journey

My legal career began in 1988, and over the years, I have gathered extensive experience in various facets of the law. Before establishing Besserman Law, I honed my skills over the years, having been blessed to work with two outstanding attorneys, Joseph Davidson and Eric Evans, and in Madison County both in the Juvenile Court and the State's Attorney's office.

A Commitment to Excellence

At Besserman Law, I am committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive legal services. My approach is client-centered, ensuring that you receive the attention and dedication your case deserves. I believe in open communication and strive to make the legal process as smooth and understandable as possible for my clients.

Expertise in Mediation

In addition to my extensive legal experience, I have a strong background in mediation. Mediation is a key component of my practice, as it provides a collaborative and non-adversarial approach to resolving disputes. I have successfully guided many clients through mediation processes, helping them reach amicable settlements without the need for prolonged court battles. My mediation experience enables me to:
Facilitate constructive communication between parties.
Encourage mutual understanding and compromise.
Develop creative solutions that meet the needs of all involved.
Save time and reduce the emotional and financial strain associated with litigation.
By incorporating mediation into my practice, I help clients achieve favorable outcomes while preserving relationships and minimizing conflict.
