Mediations

A mediation is an attempt to settle a legal dispute through the active participation of a third party (the mediator) who works to find points of agreement and make those in conflict agree on a fair result. Mediations have become very common, and in most instances mandatory for cases filed in Florida, in resolving a variety of claims.

Paul M. Doolittle has mediated well over 1,500 cases arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, and specifically under its extension of the Defense Base Act. Paul currently mediates such disputes several times a week throughout the United States and Europe. Paul also mediates claims governed by the Florida Workers’ Compensation Act. Paul has earned a positive reputation with both the claimant and defense bars; otherwise, these lawyers would not ask him to mediate their disputes.

Following his retirement from the position of District Director with the U.S. Department of Labor, Charles D. Lee joined the firm as a mediator in 2015. Due to his unique perspective as a former District Director, he has been incredibly successful at facilitating the resolution of cases at mediation. Chuck has quickly become a well-known name in the Longshore and DBA communities across the United States and is currently mediating 2-3 cases per week.
