Good mediators facilitate communication between the parties. Great mediators help the parties evaluate the respective strengths and weaknesses of their positions to create a realistic framework for an agreement.
Mediators who view their role as little more than messengers always disappointed me. I wanted a proactive third party to assist in settling a case I had already made every effort to settle with opposing counsel informally. Good lawyers don’t need messengers, they need an experienced and pro-active mediator.
My post-judicial practice is entirely focused on mediation. Over the last ten years, I have mediated over one thousand disputes with an outstanding success rate. I work diligently to serve as a great mediator. References are available upon request.

Mr. Spivey was able to help the parties reach resolution of a very difficult case. Without his expertise, the case would not have settled. I recommend him to anyone seeking a skilled mediator.6/15/2018

Mr. Spivey did all any mediator can do to help adverse parties settle a very difficult set of claims. He was sincere in his discussions with the lawyers and the clients and directed them to meaningful considerations and alternatives. He also sacrificed a personal engagement to finalize the settlement. Excellent all the way around!9/26/2017
