ADR/Mediation

Co-Chairs:  Kim Nutter, Esq., 561-241-3113;  Amy Wolsky, Esq., 561-703-2726

The ADR/Mediation Committee of the South Palm Beach County Bar conducts educational luncheons every other month. The luncheon meetings not only allow mediators, arbitrators and attorneys to meet and network, but provide substantive seminars on all aspects of ADR, including family mediation, civil circuit mediation and arbitration. Participants receive continuing educational credit for mediators and attorneys in the various areas needed. The Committee's luncheons focus on all aspects of ADR including a traditional two hour "Role Playing Seminar" that allows all attendees to participate in mock mediations to challenge them on impasses, diversity issues and ethical dilemmas that mediators regularly address.

 

Appellate Practice

Chair: Jeremy Dicker, Esq., 561-994-6273

The Appellate Practice Committee is comprised of attorneys whose practice primarily focuses on state and federal appeals, in addition to complex litigation support for other attorneys. We meet several times a year for lunch in order to exchange substantive information and discuss procedures, as well as to plan seminars of interest to appellate and trial practitioners alike. All of our members are willing to speak at any South Palm Beach County Bar Association committee meeting or event where an appellate perspective would be of assistance.  For more information, please contact either Co-Chair.
