Pat is one of the most experienced and successful mediators in the country and one of the few with substantial multi-party construction, catastrophic case, mass tort, and insurance coverage experience. He has mediated over six billion dollars worth of cases, and ninety-five percent of his cases settle.
Although Pat is one of the few sought after mediators who is asked to travel throughout the country, it goes without saying that Florida is home and remains his favorite locale for work and recreation.
