In the second installment of articles geared towards informing people of the benefits of mediation, Hon. Bradley J. Ferencz, JSC (ret.) addresses another good reason - it saves time and money.
Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) may provide a quick, efficient, and economic means of resolving disputes. We have several senior members of the bar available to utilize their decades of experience in resolving matters through the ADR process.
Judge Mark Epstein (Ret.) is counsel to the firm and spearheads the ADR efforts. Since retiring from the bench in June 2005 , Judge Epstein has limited his practice to serving as a mediator, arbitrator and special discovery master in complex environmental insurance coverage, substantial personal injury, commercial, construction, employment and matrimonial matters.
Andrew Carlowicz, Jr. has also been appointed by the American Arbitration Association as both an arbitrator and a mediator for large track, complex construction cases. He currently is also available to be retained directly as either an arbitrator or a mediator in all types of construction disputes including commercial, institutional, infrastructure, educational & residential projects. He has experience with all types of contraction claims and disputes, including but not limited to, delay, interference, acceleration claims; change order disputes; building defect claims; serious construction site accidents; and construction contract claims to name a few. In 2016 Andrew was accepted to serve on the panel of mediators for New Jersey Superior Court Rule 1:40 mandatory mediation program. Finally, he was also named as one of the “Class of 2017 ADR Champions” by The National Law Journal.
