During the pre-mediation conference call, the following considerations will likely be discussed: when claims, counter claims, responses and statements of uncontested facts are due; when and where the hearing will take place; timing and parameters regarding discovery, witnesses and experts; how expert and other testimony will be presented; the timing of pre-hearing briefs; allocations of attorney fees and costs; the form of the award; and other items.

With Judge Ward's assistance, we were able to obtain an amicable resolution of the case.  Just as when he was sitting on the bench, Judge Ward showed understanding, temperance and intelligence in addressing the issues.  Settlement was fair and adequate the nature and extent of injury.  I would not hesitate to use ADR Systems’ assistance in the future.
