DiBlasi, a former presiding justice of the Commercial Division now exclusively affiliated with National Arbitration & Mediation, write: As a full-time mediator, by virtue of sheer volume, you are involved in the resolution of more cases in one month than most attorneys are in their entire career.

Many lawyers and their clients do not fully understand the process, which leads to numerous mistakes that often doom their best efforts (and those of the mediator) to bring the case to a successful resolution.
