I am a licensed attorney and Judge Pro Tempore who has conducted and been involved in hundreds of mediations and thousands of arbitrations. I can answer questions regarding settlement conferences, mediations or arbitrations. I do not give legal advice over the internet and it would be helpful to list your location such as country or state.

What do you like about this subject?

Arbitration and Mediations are a growing trend in the field of law. Both arbitration and mediation provide a more expedient and cost effective alternative from litigation.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Resolving issues in a less expensive and faster forum is always best for the parties.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

There is a difference between arbitration and mediation. Arbitrations involve a fact finder making a determination on the facts presented in the case. The factfinder is the arbitrator who listens to evidence. A mediator is a person who facilitates a settlement between the parties and does not decide the facts of the case.
