Sharon M Easley - Mediator Sharon Easley has not only been a trial attorney for over 24 years, she has been a trained mediator for over 15 years. Sharon began her career as a commercial litigator in 1988 with the Dallas law firm of Moore & Peterson and ended her career as a trial attorney in 2012 with the Plano-based family law firm of Easley & Marquis. In January 2013, Sharon transitioned her career to that of a full-time mediator with Dispute Mediation Specialists, in part, because of her strong belief that parties to a dispute are much better served by reaching agreements to resolve their issues than by resorting to the litigation process. While Sharon has always been very competent and comfortable as a trial attorney, she learned after many, many trials that seldom do all parties to a lawsuit, particularly in divorce and custody cases, walk away feeling good about the result. In contrast, her experience as a mediator and as an attorney representing parties in a mediation has taught her that mediation offers the best opportunity for a "win-win" resolution.
Sharon is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma School of Law where she was a note editor of the Oklahoma Law Review. In addition to establishing a highly successful law firm in Plano while raising a family of four children, Sharon has dedicated endless hours for the legal community of Collin County. She is an active member of the Plano Chamber of Commerce, having previously served as Director of the Women's Division and a member of the Chamber board and most recently as a recipient of the Fred Moses Minority Business Owner award. Sharon was also named the national Business Woman of the Year by the American Business Women's Association in 2000.
In the legal community she is a founding member of both the Collin County Bench Bar Foundation and the Collaborative Law Alliance of Collin County. She has served numerous terms as a Director of the Plano Bar Association, the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of North Central Texas and the Collin County Bench Bar Foundation. She has also been very active in the Collin County Bar Association, having served as an officer and director for many years, as chair of the ADR Section and the Family Law Section and, finally, as President of the Collin County Bar Association.

Sharon Easley, as one of the only family law attorneys in Collin County who is also qualified to be appointed by a court as a parent coordinator or a parent facilitator, cautions other family law attorneys and their clients to make sure the person they choose has experience in handling high conflict custody cases, because most situations where a parent coordinator or a parent facilitator is needed fall into that category of family law matters.

Sharon Easley, who frequently represents parents who are concerned that their children are being alienated from them by the other parent, has found that children of divorced parents are frequently the victims of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). She has worked diligently to encourage family court judges to consider more creative solutions when the signs of parental alienation are present.
Parental alienation is the action of one parent in an attempt, even if subconscious, to turn the children against the other parent. Parental Alienation Syndrome is the result of the conscious or unconscious efforts of one parent to alienate the children from the other parent. This alienating behavior may start during the divorce process itself or begin later, such as upon the remarriage of one of the parents. Sharon Easley, a partner of Easley & Marquis, is a seasoned attorney specializing in all areas involving child custody matters, including PAS.
...
A judge making such an order has been a very rare occurrence in Easley & Marquis' experience in handling custody disputes. His ruling in this case, however, was very successful for their client and the children. After the children had the opportunity to get to know their father better without interference by their mother, they told the judge they realized their mother had been trying to make them hate their father and they now wanted to continue living with their father. He was awarded permanent, primary custody.
...
When a new client with a Child Custody matter comes to Easley & Marquis, the case is usually referred to Sharon Easley, who immediately begins to assess the case for evidence of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). When evidence of PAS is present, Sharon knows that the "fight" to insure that her client has the opportunity to have a quality relationship with his or her children, after divorce, will be very tough and require very specialized treatment in order to succeed. The following is an example of one such case in which Easley & Marquis succeeded in stopping a mother from alienating her children from their father, who was ultimately awarded custody of both of his children by a Family Court judge in McKinney, Texas.
