Alternative Dispute Resolution


Conflicts in life can be stressful, especially when they result from litigation.  Knowing and understanding legal rights and obligations can be difficult, and negotiating a resolution is oftentimes demanding.  Sometimes informal settlement efforts just do not work, and mediation by a neutral arbiter is required.  Bringing in an impartial person who is trained in mediation can make all the difference in the world.   Indiana's Alternative Dispute Resolution rules allow this.  Mike knows how to bring together parties to resolve their legal conflicts. Mike is registered as both a Civil and Family Relations mediator in Indiana.  Mike’s extensive experience in litigation serves him well in mediation.  If you need a neutral party to help you find common ground for settlement of your litigation case, or even in pre-suit mediation (before a lawsuit is filed), then contact Mike at the LOOMIS LAW OFFICE in Fort Wayne at (260) 271-1299 or email at [email protected].
