Active Mediation

Based on more than 35 years of active experience as a litigator in complex civil matters Mr. Hiatt is familiar with the very significant expense, time and stress on the participants that can be incurred in traditional litigation as a method of conflict resolution.

As a result, and if the parties agree, Mr. Hiatt will help them approach mediation actively and creatively in the hope that, working together, he can assist the parties to reach a reasonable and mutually acceptable solution, without going through a costly litigation process.

Mr. Hiattʻs goal is always to identify a solution which all of the parties can accept and to do so in a process where each party has been fully heard and treated fairly during the mediation process.

In serving as a mediator or arbitrator, Mr. Hiatt works through Dispute Prevention and Resolution.
