Combining a keen grasp of negotiating strategies with an expertise in risk evaluation, both of which were sharply honed during his years as a litigator, Floyd Siegal has developed a well-deserved reputation in legal circles as a gifted mediator and creative problem-solver.
Praised for his communication skills and diplomacy, Floyd quickly establishes rapport with opposing counsel and parties alike, putting everyone at ease and building a framework for ongoing dialogue and compromise. His even-handed demeanor brings calm to the most emotionally-charged disputes, and his ability to help each side understand and appreciate the other’s point of view breaks down the natural barriers to resolution.
Patience and persistence are attributes shared by every good mediator, and Floyd is no exception. He is fully committed to resolving every dispute he mediates — no matter how long it takes. Toward that end, his services include — at no additional cost — unlimited follow up by e-mail and telephone if the parties are unable to reach a resolution at mediation.
Finally, Floyd has designed a unique dispute resolution process, called Baseball Mediation™, which he offers — at the parties’ option — as an alternative to either traditional mediation or binding arbitration. Fusing elements derived from “Baseball Arbitration” and “Night Baseball Arbitration” with elements derived from conventional mediation, the process incorporates a built-in mechanism that automatically resolves a final impasse at mediation, thereby guaranteeing same-day resolution of any dispute.
For more information about Baseball Mediation, including a summary of results obtained by others who have engaged in the process, please contact Floyd at email@example.com or (818) 262-5830.
