Serving as Mediator

When parties engage in mediation, whether voluntarily or as required by law, it is important to have a mediator who has a solid understanding of the litigation process and likely outcomes, and can bring that experience and knowledge to bear on the dispute at hand. The attorneys in our firm who serve as mediators have strong backgrounds in civil litigation, domestic law and business disputes.

Sarah Brady and Claire Samuels bring more than 27 years of collective experience as family law attorneys to the mediation table. Sarah and Claire are both certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission as Family Financial Mediators. Their mediation practices include mediation services for couples seeking to resolve their child custody, child support, spousal support, and property division issues voluntarily.

Business Litigator Fred Monroe is also a certified mediator. The North Carolina Business Court for Complex Cases has appointed Fred to serve as a mediator and has found him qualified to serve in the capacity as a receiver in complex business cases. Fred’s almost 25-year practice in complex business disputes, when coupled with his educational background in the areas of finance and accounting, provide him with a distinctive ability to save as a mediator on business litigation issues.
