Attorney Adam Wolfe, before becoming a Florida Certified Circuit Court Mediator, represented a panoply of clients – the insured and the insurer; employers and employees; homeowners and homebuilders; general contractors and subcontractors; plaintiffs and defendants.
He has been a member of a large, national law firm, a mid-size firm, a small firm, and now a solo practitioner. His varied experiences give him the unique ability to appreciate the vast and differing perspectives presented in a civil lawsuit or controversy. He calls on this background when trying to help adversaries find a common ground in the mediation setting.
Adam’s legal experience includes personal injury matters (MVA’s, premises liability, etc.), as well as commercial litigation matters. Board Certified in Construction Law since 2010, Adam’s law practice largely focuses on disputes in this field. His legal knowledge as well as his practical understanding of what is involved in construction litigation both serve him well when helping the parties sort through the morass of issues they face.
Mediation is by far the most cost-effective way of resolving most disputes. Beyond the potential money saved, mediation is beneficial in many other ways, such as:
Control: You and the other party are in control of what potential resolutions you are willing to accept or reject.
Speed: Because you control the pace and time frame of mediation, disputes are often resolved more quickly than they would be in the court system.
Flexibility: You and the other party have the flexibility to come up with and agree to creative, detailed solutions.
Privacy: Court hearings are a matter of public record. Mediation sessions are held privately, usually in the mediator’s office.
Confidentiality: All discussions and documents reviewed in mediation remain completely confidential. They cannot be used in any court proceedings.
Improved communication and relationships: Because mediation focuses on reaching agreement, not placing blame, there is often less hostility between parties and better communication going forward. This is especially beneficial in family law matters, where parties may have to co-parent long after the case is over.
Scheduling – Please use the calendar link to book your mediation. There is a three and one half (3.5) hour minimum charge for all mediations unless agreed to by the mediator. Also, unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the participating parties shall divide mediation fees equally. If a full day is reserved, there will be a seven (7) hour minimum charge.
