Mediation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation has become the focal point of all litigation. State and federal courts even require that the parties mediate their cases before heading to court. While choosing the right attorney is important, having a mediator who can help the parties negotiate the settlement waters is just as important.

Rob has been mediating cases since 1995. He was among the initial few attorneys to participate in the Conasauga Judicial Circuit Alternative Dispute Resolution Program. He now participates in the 7th Judicial Administrative District’s ADR Program as well as the 9th Judicial Administrative Districts Program. He is a member of the Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution section of the State Bar of Georgia as well as the ADR section of the American Bar Association. In 2014, Rob was honored by being recognized as a distinguished mediator by the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals. He is the only mediator in northwest Georgia to receive such a distinction.

Rob mediates cases involving personal injury, business disputes, family law, real estate litigation, and probate disputes, just to name a few areas. He is consistently in demand and mediates approximately 120 cases a year. Rob also mediates conflicts not in litigation, these include pre-suit divorce mediations as well as business conflicts. We have found that pre-suit mediation has the parties “cut to the chase” and avoid the expense of litigation. For further details, feel free to contact Rob directly.

To schedule a mediation, please contact Samantha Perez at The Cowan Law Firm or visit The National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.
