MEDIATED SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE IN SUPERIOR COURT

NC DRC Certified Mediator

Almost all cases filed in the Superior Court require mediation before trial. I have tried or mediated cases as varied as condemnation and personal injuries, boundary disputes and damage to property, contract breach and medical malpractice. Let me help you resolve your case without the time, expense and uncertainty of trial.

FAMILY FINANCIAL SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE IN DISTRICT COURT

NC DRC Certified Mediator

Any case filed in District Court which includes a claim for Equitable Distribution (division of marital property) is required to be mediated before trial. Other disputes involving money may also be mediated. I have tried and mediated innumerable cases involving these issues. I can help you resolve these difficult issues while you still control the outcome - before a trial with all its accompanying anxiety and expense.

MEDIATED SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE IN WORKERS COMPENSATION

NCIC Approved Mediator

Compensation claims for injuries suffered while on the job must be mediated before  hearing by members of the Industrial Commission. I have participated in many hours of training so that I could be approved for mediation appointment by the Commission. I have mediated numerous claims now and bring the same fairness and impartiality to the process as I did as a Judge and as I do in all other mediations.
