"Many of my Mediations and Arbitrations are scheduled before suit is filed and the parties are involved in litigation.  Pre-suit Mediation is generally effective and can help to expeditiously settle what would otherwise be a costly dispute that takes on a life of its own in the litigation process."

Fred Tromberg

"Mediation and Arbitration are part of the larger, effective process called Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and these are effective tools to settle claims and cases avoiding the expense and uncertainty of going to trial."
