Mediation has become one of the most valuable tools an attorney can use to settle a dispute. In this presentation, National Law Journal’s #1 mediator of 2014, Hon. John DiBlasi, discusses the effective tools to maximize profit within meditation. The presentation begins with skills to prepare for mediation. From there, Justice DiBlasi offers techniques for having a valuable joint session along with settlement agreements. He concludes the presentation with an in-depth conversation on how to maintain negotiations post-mediation.
Justice DiBlasi is a former Justice of the New York State Supreme Court and is exclusively affiliated with National Arbitration and Mediation.
I. Prepare you and your client for mediation

The Judge was very practical in his approach.
excellent, the importance of emotion and understanding it.
Nice overview of process and need for parameters.
nice inside look at mediation
This was the best course I have watched to date.
Excellent recommendations; wish I'd seen this sooner!
Yes I liked this informative presentation.
He starts out by saying that different mediators have different styles -- a true statement. Much of the rest of the lecture is how to be effective with HIS style, and is useful. The lecture is less useful if you have a mediator who has a diferent approach.
Very good information!
Hon. John DiBlasi was very informative and articulated the subject well.
Lecture was focused and effective; lecturer provided clear and pragmatic advice for litigators regarding mediation.
I have been an attorney for 20+ years. Most of my cases resolve by mediation. This was the most practical and concise MCLE presentation on the topic that I have heard.

Really a solid presentation!!! His insights are based on common sense, and his practical approach based on experience is terrific!!! His warnings to "do this" and "don't do that" seem to be right on the money!! If one wants to settle a big case, give John a call!!!
