We are excited to announce the launch of "Specialized ADR," a full-service firm comprised of professionals who provide a wide array of alternative dispute resolution services as Mediators, Arbitrators, Independent Investigators, Court-Appointed Special Masters, Magistrates, Receivers, Referees, E-Discovery Special Masters, and Neutral Case Evaluators. Founded by Steven L. Schwarzberg and Aaron D. Schwarzberg, Specialized ADR focuses its services in the tri-county area and uses facilities conveniently located in West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Miami.
Why Alternative Dispute Resolution?
Resorting to litigation in crowded courts to resolve disputes can be unpredictable, time-consuming, expensive, within public scrutiny, and can lead to unanticipated consequences. Relying upon Mediation, Arbitration, Special Masters/Magistrates, Independent Investigators, E-Discovery Special Masters, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution can enable parties to: a) resolve, settle and compromise disputes themselves less expensively, more expediently, on a confidential basis, and on creative terms fashioned by the parties themselves; or b) when mediation fails, have their dispute determined by an arbitrator who is proficient and experienced in the industry or area involved in the dispute (e.g., internet, healthcare, finance, employment, education, brokerage, family law, complex commercial, etc.).
Why "Specialized" ADR?
Specialized ADR has professionals with substantial experience in their respective fields available who can better understand and handle hard-to-resolve disputes in a pragmatic, reasonable, mutually acceptable manner. Some of our professionals have many years of successful mediation experience; others are non-lawyers who are leaders in their fields (e.g., engineer, appraiser, physician, internet and Intellectual Property, HR Consultant). Some of our mediators are Supreme Court certified and act as facilitators; others are non-certified, able to apply a more evaluative direct approach to settlement negotiations, as the parties request and the situation requires. Depending on the case at hand, having a non-certified professional experienced in the industry or field in question who will play a more involved evaluative role may be exactly what the parties need.
Our Mission is to become the "Go To Firm" for Alternative Dispute Resolution in South Florida.
We're not just another mediation firm. We want to attract the highest caliber of professionals capable of serving in a variety of ADR functions in judicial, administrative, regulatory, corporate, and related forums. When Courts, Businesses, Organizations, Attorneys and other professionals think about how disputes can be resolved, Specialized ADR wants to be considered the alternative to "Go-To."
Specialized ADR Is Results-Oriented.
The Specialized ADR approach cuts down on the time needed to be spent explaining the complexities of the issues and gives the parties an opportunity to have a third party neutral in the room who understands their problems as well or possibly even better than they do. This saves the parties time which, in turn, saves them money. It also provides the parties with high quality, intelligent, engaging, and effective assistance on a neutral and efficient basis. Specialized ADR (specializedADR.com) will utilize cutting edge technology and creative resources to make available web-based mediation, operate 7 days a week into the evening, use professionals who speak foreign languages, offer Team Mediation, and provide the infrastructure needed to handle a wide array of ADR services. Specialized ADR will achieve results.
