Our mission is to help businesses, insurers, public organizations, lawyers, and individuals resolve disputes promptly and cost-effectively without the expense and commitment of time associated with litigation. We use mediation, arbitration, and other dispute resolution techniques to resolve conflict. Stephen P. Calardo, J.D. is the Founder and President of Calardo Mediation Service. He is a leading practitioner of mediation who has successfully mediated thousands of disputes. His years of experience as a mediator, arbitrator, and successful trial attorney enable him to assist parties in disputes to focus on common sense pathways to settlement. Unlike litigation, mediation allows parties to meet with a neutral mediator, talk out their differences, and reach an agreement that addresses the important interests of everyone involved. A two-party mediation costs $190.00 per hour per side. Mediations are typically scheduled for half or full day sessions. Types of disputes mediated include: Business, commercial, insurance, employment, environmental, professional liability, tort, medical, class actions, discrimination, construction, contracts, personal injury, wrongful death, land use, securities, and other civil disputes.
