Mediation can be a cost-effective means to settle part or all of a dispute. The parties typically share the expense and are all vested in a common goal of resolving their dispute in a neutral environment. Ideally, the parties should retain the services of a mediator with experience in the general subject matter of the case. Then the likelihood of bridging the gaps between them is greatly enhanced.
Ray Mariani is very experienced in
representing clients and serving as a neutral in mediations in more than
25 states. He is a member of the panels for the federal courts in Manhattan and Brooklyn as well as the Westchester County Commercial panel and has completed the Harvard Law School course on Mediation Training.
For parties with disputes involving products liability claims, contracts for services or products, warranty claims, insurance coverage issues, transportation matters and other subject areas, Ray Mariani can serve as a mediator in an informed and productive manner. The parties do not need to spend valuable time and money educating him on the subject matter before he is able to constructively help resolve a dispute. Instead, Ray Mariani will bring to bear more than 25 years of experience from first-hand litigation and mediation of these very types of cases. This means he will be working to resolve the matter with the parties from the first moment he meets with them.

in furthering the use of mediation as a means to save clients time and
