Expertise in Resolving Business Disputes through Mediation and Trial

We understand the costs in lost time and money that result from disputes. Our goal is to help you resolve your business conflict as quickly and cost effectively as possible so you can focus on what you do best – operating your business. With our expertise in business dispute resolution, we can help you reach a resolution. One effective dispute resolution technique is pre-suit mediation. Mr. Mashburn will meet with you, the opposing side, their attorney, and a professional mediator to discuss solutions to the dispute. This procedure works well for the following reasons:

  • Less costly than litigation

  • Less time consuming than litigation

  • Mediator brings as unbiased view to dispute

  • Emphasis on resolution, not conflict.

In some circumstances, a trial before a judge or jury is the unavoidable. Mr. Mashburn has over thirty-seven years of trial experience. His expertise is recognized by the Florida Bar. He has been a Florida Board Certified Business Litigation or Civil Trial Lawyer since 1993.
