CIRCUIT CIVIL MEDIATION
Senior Partner John Jopling recently achieved Supreme Court certification as circuit civil mediator. As a mediator, John brings more than three and a half decades of experience as a civil litigator and frequent party to the mediation of complex, multi-party matters.
As defined by Florida Law and Administrative Rule, mediation is an informal and non-adversarial process with the objective of helping the disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable and voluntary agreement. The mediator is a neutral and impartial third person who acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute without prescribing what that resolution should be.
In Florida, virtually all civil lawsuits are required to go through mediation in an effort to resolve the cases without the stress and expense of a trial. Over the decades since its implementation in Florida, mediation has proved to be a usually successful and cost-efficient method of alternative dispute resolution, often resolving even very complex, emotional, and hotly contested matters of civil litigation.
The Dell Graham firm offers its own facilities at 203 NE 1st Street for the conduct of mediation or travel to a convenient location which the parties may require. If you are in need of a Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, please call (352) 416-0066, or use the scheduling links below.
