While our firm offers significant trial experience and capability for your cases, only a small percentage of lawsuits actually make it to a trial. Many of these cases settle via alternative dispute resolution procedures, including mediation. In fact, according to the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution, more than 80% of the cases mediated in Alabama result in a settlement.
BTNL is prepared to assist you with your mediation needs. Our partner Bruce Barze is a trained mediator registered with the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution. He also brings to mediation his more than 30 years of experience as a trial lawyer in Alabama state and federal courts, as well as trial experience gained in proceedings in Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, and New Jersey. Bruce has the capability to serve as a mediator in a wide range of matters, including commercial disputes, personal injury cases, product liability and catastrophic injury lawsuits, insurance coverage matters, and construction claims.
