Appellate Mediation

I have a track record of seeking out and achieving smart and valuable settlements of cases through mediation and independent negotiation while appeals are pending.  I know how to get the mediation process started, whether the appellate court has an established mediation program or not.  Because of my own extensive mediation training, I have a unique grasp of this alternative dispute resolution process and its potential for resolving litigation at the appellate level.

My experience and the reputation that I have garnered for appellate work make me a uniquely credible advocate in the setting of appellate mediation. I can take the initiative in pursuit of  mediation without inducing any adversary to believe that I would like to duck the battle of briefing and argument.  It is well known and readily discoverable that I am at home in those battles.
