Selina J. Shultz, Esq.


Mediator since 1997.  Received LLM in Dispute Resolution from The Straus Institute at the Pepperdine University School of Law, top ranked program in the country.


Selina is sought out to work with individuals, couples and businesses as a mediator and consultant in dispute resolution. Unlike other mediators in the market, mediation is not a "retirement plan" or a "hobby" for Selina. Mediation is her main vocation and has been for the last twelve years. She brings an enthusiasm for the process that is contagious.


With over eighteen years of mediation experience, hundreds of cases, and training with the best and the brightest in the country, Selina has developed a mediation style that is effective and facilitative. She is an innovative thinker. "Empowering people to negotiate for themselves instead of being a powerless participant in the court process is truly exhilarating."


Selina was one of the original mediators for the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas' Generations Program, where she served as a custody mediator for thirteen years. She is a founding partner of Bunde Gillotti Mulroy & Shultz and later its subsidiary, Shultz Mediation Services. Selina is on the panel of mediators for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission,  and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.  She is the primary founder of The Alternative Group a practice group of Bunde Gillotti Mulroy & Shultz, P.C.


Selina mediates employment, complex and simple divorce and custody cases, and all types of civil and business cases, possessing the sophistication and training necessary to deal with whatever issues arise. Selina has an uncanny ability to bring out people's best thinking in order to guide them to solutions.


Selina can also provide design services to businesses wanting to create an in-house mediation program or litigation prevention system to prevent the cost of future litigation.


Selina is a popular lecturer and trainer in the area of dispute resolution and works with individuals and organizations to provide trainings in mediation and conflict resolution skills.  She is an adjunct professor at the Straus Institute at the Pepperdine University School of Law and also at Duquesne University School of Law where she co-teaches  Judgment and Decision Making for Lawyers with Robert A. Creo.  The course is based on the research of Randall Kiser and is the first law school level course of its kind in the country.


As an active member of the Mediation Council of Western Pennsylvania, Selina has served as the Co-Chair of the Program Committee, Treasurer, Vice President, and is currently President of the Board.  Selina has also served on the Board of the Pennsylvania Council of Mediators.  She is also a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association's Alternative Dispute Committee and the Association for Conflict Resolution.


When not mediating, Selina enjoys spending time with her husband, negotiating with her three active kids, running a marathon or two, and sneaking off to yoga.
