Ira understands strong personalities and entrenched positions of parties and that mediation is a process which takes patience, persistence and creativity.
The Evaluative Approach
As a mediator with trial lawyer experience, Ira approaches each mediation with the goal of understanding the personalities, as well as the legal issues and facts involved. Ira will review all relevant pleadings, documents, mediation summaries, as well as relevant case law. In Ira’s experience, the only way difficult cases get settled is if the mediator understands the case and is able to present both sides with evaluations of how a judge or jury might view their respective positions and the risk, reward attendant thereto.
Ira has mediated State and Federal disputes throughout the State of Florida, various cities throughout the country.
