Using case scenarios, the speakers will discuss the ethical dilemmas attendant to negotiating personal injury/malpractice settlements. They will answer questions such as, “Does agreeing to mediate imply a good faith obligation to negotiate?” and “How many mediations does it typically take to resolve a high value case?”

Judge Bernthal’s calm demeanor and deliberate approach helped us settle a very difficult case which had failed in a prior mediation.  His ability to put my client at ease and gain her respect was instrumental in getting the job done.  I would not hesitate to have Judge Bernthal mediate any of my future cases.
