Mediation CLE

Sneak Peak of Gary's Mediation Presentation

Since the pandemic, I have done a bunch of Zoom mediations. I have developed effective strategies and ways of presenting during the mediations, which I will share.

Here are some teasers (more in the presentation):

  • Before the mediation we have a firm system of activities to be prepared, including contacting lienholders, form emails to clients explaining mediation, etc
  • A week or two before a mediation I prepare my case summary to the mediator with pictures or whatever good evidence I have and send it to the other side too. They need to digest it and set reserves accordingly.
  • Pre mediation meeting via zoom with the client to prepare them for the mediation process and to talk case value.
  • Prior to and during the mediation I take notes in a word document and prepare arguments and parts of depositions or medical reports. Then I share my screen with that in Zoom to my client and the mediator to present points in the mediation.
