On December 2, 2011, Tom will present “The 4 W’s (What? Why? When? and Who?) of Alternative Dispute Resolution,” for the PA Bar Association’s Institute. The PBI (Pennsylvania Bar Institute) serves as the continuing education arm of the Bar Association. Its mission is to provide Pennsylvania lawyers with information that is timely, practical, cost effective, and of the highest possible quality.
While Tom maintains an active trial practice, he has become a well-regarded mediator and arbitrator who provides services to attorneys from both sides of the “aisle.” His alternative dispute resolution practice focuses on medical malpractice and other professional negligence, products liability, commercial and business disputes, employment issues and personal injury.
He has successfully completed the forty-hour mediation certification training at Duke University, as presented by Beason & Ellis Conflict Resolution, LLC. This training is also in compliance with the requirements for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania and its pilot program instituting mandatory alternative dispute resolution.
