Applying Advanced Communication Skills to Mediated Settlements
We approach mediation with a commitment to understand the concerns of both parties, including the personal and business issues that are at the heart of disputes -- and have conducted over 100 mediations in cases ranging from medical malpractice to insurance claims. In any mediated settlement, we make sure we are part of the solution, not part of the problem. While litigation is sometimes unavoidable, mediation is often a faster, less expensive and ultimately more satisfying path to resolution.

To that end, we employ technology, research capabilities and analytical skills to craft compelling written arguments and, when necessary, argue your case before the court. When you need to make sure that a ruling is not overturned, we apply the same zealous approach to convince the court that the ruling should stand.
