Successful mediators have come to learn that truth is a critical element in any successful negotiation. However, in an adversarial negotiation, trust is a relative thing. You may never come to fully trust your adversary, but that doesn’t mean parties can’t mutually engage in a good faith and ethical negotiation process-a simple and honest approach that is often derailed by parties looking to gain an advantage. The panelists will provide tips on how to use (ADR) in matrimonial matters and family law disputes.
The panel discussion will address the best practices for the successful mediation of medical malpractice claims for plaintiff and defense counsel alike.
