Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton

The Principal at Hamilton Law and Mediation

Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton has focused her practice on alternative dispute resolution, restorative justice, integrative law, and mediation to resolve disputes between people involving animals.  Hamilton ADR-NC (HADRNC), [formerly Hamilton Law and Mediation, PLLC] is the premier solo mediation practice that is dedicated to helping people resolve conflicts involving animals in a restorative manner for all.

She speaks worldwide, on the value of learning conscious communication skills when speaking about animals. The ability to have a conscious conversation with everyone involved in an incident diffuses difficult or dangerous situation in these important and changing times.  Debra’s presentations enable people to recognize their own power of communication and the power of allowing communication for all sides to flow seamlessly.  She illuminates, through examples, how transparency keeps everyone in the discussion feel valued. 


Debra is the go-to person for information involving conflicts over animals for the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Huffington Post and US News and World Report.  Debra is the author of, Nipped in the Bud, Not in the Butt: How to Use Mediation to Resolve Conflicts over Animals and co-author of Onward and Upward: A Guide For Getting Through New York Divorce & Family Law Issues. You can reach her at or at 914-552-5021.
