Mediation is a process that has been utilized as an alternative dispute resolution process in Florida for many years. In fact Florida is a recognized leader in the implementation of mediation into the court system. One of the core principles of mediation is that of self-determination. This principle requires that mediation be conducted in an atmosphere that enables the parties to reach a settlement on their own agreed upon terms and conditions. Mediation has been a very successful part of dispute resolution. Brian Battaglia is available to mediate cases in the areas of Business, Commercial, Governmental Affairs, Corporate, Class Action, Construction and Personal Injury.

conference roomBrian Battaglia is inspired by the words of Abraham Lincoln, who said ‘Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can”. Brian Battaglia knows the value of avoiding court and settling conflicts and disputes through mediation and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) mechanisms in a pre-litigation setting or after a suit has been filed in court. He has taught on the subject of mediation and ADR and understands the value and benefit that ADR can offer business’, individuals and government agencies.
