Office of Stephen Spivey Mediation


 I define a good mediator as one who facilitates communication between the parties and a great mediator as one who, in addition, helps the parties evaluate the respective strengths and weaknesses of their positions to create a realistic framework for an agreement.

As a practicing attorney, I was disappointed that some mediators viewed their role as little more than messengers. In my experience, telephone calls to opposing counsel are a more efficient way of communicating. I hired a mediator with the expectation that a proactive third party might 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 background in business and government service, coupled with my litigation and judicial experience, provide me with an outstanding and well-rounded foundation to assist the parties in resolving their despute. I work diligently to serve as a great mediator. References are available upon request.
