We offer a number of mediation formats including traditional facilitative mediation, mediation with active feedback, and mediation-arbitration. Kevin mediates cases with parties and counsel and with parties who are not represented by counsel.
Binding arbitration is available for those parties seeking an enforceable resolution that is less adversarial and less expensive than a contested hearing or trial. The arbitration can be as informal as the parties wish. Kevin favors the least formal process that also guarantees the due process rights of the parties.
Utilizing Rule 53 either by court order or by stipulation of the parties, Kevin will receive evidence and present findings of fact and recommendations to the presiding Judge.
Pursuant to Rule 122/C.R.S. 13-3-111, Kevin will conduct a hearing or trial as a retired/private judge.
For Special Master and Private Judge proceedings, hearing times are guaranteed, eliminating the risk of being bumped from the docket; a record is preserved by digital recording or court reporter; and the parties retain their appellate rights.
