In many instances, employment claims can be most effectively, efficiently and economically resolved not by litigating, but rather through mediation. Jeff is trained in all aspects of mediation and can offer parties guidance in reaching negotiated settlements in employment and other cases. Mediation services provided by the Brown Jacobson Employment Practices Group afford a non-binding and non-threatening alternative to protracted and costly litigation.
To be successful, parties to a mediation must be committed to engaging in a good faith effort to settle the dispute. As a neutral mediator, Jeff works with both parties in an effort to identify areas of common interest, opportunities for compromise and ultimately resolution. The process may serve not only to resolve the conflict, but also to establish a shared recognition of the factors that caused it in the first place.
