About Harriet J. Fishman, Esq.
2008 - current
Mediator in private practice.
1991 - 2007
Marital Master, New Hampshire Superior Court and New Hampshire Family Division.
In this position, I presided over thousands of family law cases: divorce and parenting actions, domestic violence cases, and child support lawsuits. I heard the full timeline of actions, from the temporary to the final hearing, and matters brought forward after a final decree issued. While serving on the bench, it was my practice to facilitate discussion among the parties and counsel with a goal of reaching a mutually acceptable stipulation.
1987 - 1991
Deputy Clerk, Rockingham Superior Court with a concentration in the Marital Division. I was primarily responsible to the Masters, court staff, counsel and pro se litigants in both an administrative and advisory capacity.
1983 - 1987
Private practice, as an associate and partner at the Giles Law Office. My practice had an emphasis on personal injury, medical malpractice, and workers' compensation matters.

1977, B.S. Northeastern University, Boston, MA.
1974, R.N. Beth Israel School of Nursing, New York, NY.
