RESOLUTION THROUGH MEDIATION is a national employment law, personal injury and medical malpractice, and intellectual property mediation firm based in Honolulu, Hawai'i.

Elizabeth Jubin Fujiwara, founder and principal, is a trained and experienced mediator who is especially effective with hostile and litigious parties because of her two decades of trial experience as a lawyer handling employment law, discrimination, civil rights, and labor law cases. She is also available as a neutral fact-finder in employment matters.

Ms. Fujiwara has served as the Senior Trial Attorney for the EEOC in Hawai'i and the Pacific Basin. She is the founder and was president of the National Employment Lawyers Association of Hawai'i from 1993 to 1996. She holds a Masters Degree in Social Work with a focus on counseling and community development.

Earlier in her career (1986), Ms. Fujiwara headed up her own law firm, which is considered by some to have been the vanguard for employment law in Hawai'i. She has also focused her practice in the areas of tort issues and intellectual property law, and also represents entertainers in contract negotiation.
