Fred Van Liew, a lawyer, mediator, consultant, trainer, lobbyist, community organizer, and novice blogger, is the Director for the Center for Restorative Justice Practices in Des Moines, Iowa.  For most of his twenty-eight years as a practicing attorney he worked as a prosecutor "inside the system."  He learned much during those years but looking back says what he took away from the experience is that we can do much better when it comes to how we respond to crime and those who commit them.  Fred retired as a prosecutor in 2010 and worked for awhile applying Restorative Justice Principles to workplace conflicts.  He takes part-time classes in Conflict Transformation at Eastern Mennonite University and says he is fortunate to have Howard Zehr as his mentor.  He is in the early stages of writing a book exploring the experiences ordinary people have had with the justice system, traveling every month to a different part of the country to discover what justice looks like for the average person and those who have been caught up in the system.
