Mediation is a process that has grown in popularity over the last several decades and can be used in cases involving both arbitration and litigation. While mediation is similar to arbitration and litigation in that it involves a neutral person, someone not involved in the lawsuit; the mediator is present only to facilitate settlement discussions and has no authority whatsoever to make a decision regarding the case.
In addition to representing clients during mediation, Beggs & Lane attorney's Bob Crongeyer and Tom Gonzalez also serve as Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil mediators. Bob Crongeyer has previously practiced as a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Court Mediator. He has recently completed the necessary steps for re-certification and is awaiting formal certification.
Both Bob and Tom are available to conduct half, full and multi-day mediations in all circuit civil matters. Our multiple state-of-the-art conference rooms provide the ideal setting for multi-party mediation sessions. For out of town mediations, they are available to travel as needed.
