We are a group of experienced and respected retired appellate and trial court judges, attorney adjudicators, a nationally renown and respected neuro-psychologist and sophisticated community mediators with backgrounds as elected and appointed officials who have mediated federal, state, local and community disputes. We offer experience and expertise in specific practice areas as well as advanced skill-based training in the mediation, arbitration, neutral case evaluation, and case management of both simple and complex litigation. All of our neutrals continue to educate themselves in both their specialized practice areas and in dispute resolution skill development.
The Platt Group is different because its neutrals are selected by you with our assistance if requested based on the neutrals knowledge, background and experience in adjudicating, resolving and evaluating cases with issues similar to those presented by your case or controversy. The panel of neutrals available through The Platt Group includes retired judges and highly trained and experienced practitioners in many different areas. These include professional liability, business conflict and litigation including, simple and complex tort and contract disputes, regulatory practice, appeals from administrative agencies (federal, state and local), intellectual property, real estate, land use and family law.
The Platt Group also uniquely offers in certain cases at competitive prices co-mediators or panel of 3 arbitrators where the parties and counsel recognize the need for expertise in multiple disciplines. We also work directly with forensic accountants and other professionals with whom we can consult if business or property valuations are needed to efficiently mediate and economically arbitrate a case as a part of a unified rapid and reliable dispute resolution process. We also uniquely offer a mediation or neutral case evaluation by co-mediators or evaluators made up of a retired judge and a PHD neuro-psychologist in family law cases or experts in related disciplines in other cases.
