Phoenix Mediation and Arbitration
Skilled Mediators and Arbitrators
Attorneys who select our mediators and arbitrators
to facilitate alternate resolution of clients' disputes benefit from our
extensive experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a
variety of trial settings.
We offer valuable, diverse understanding of the
strengths and weaknesses of claims and defenses. Because of our diverse
experiences as litigators and trial attorneys, we are able to help
litigators and their clients recognize when it is in their best interest
to “give a little more” or “take a little less” based on our insightful
analysis of the facts, the law, and how judges and juries are likely to
respond to their arguments.
Success in alternative dispute resolution is
enhanced by extensive experience by the mediator or arbitrator in
litigation and trial work. Both Tom Shorall and Paul McGoldrick are
