Panter, Panter & Sampedro Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Services

Mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services are processes used to help individuals and organizations resolve conflicts outside of the traditional court system. These processes can be particularly useful when parties want to maintain control over the outcome of their dispute, save time and money, and preserve relationships.

Mediation is a form of ADR where a neutral third party, called a mediator, helps facilitate communication between the parties involved in a dispute to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement. Mediators do not make decisions for the parties or impose their own opinions, but instead help parties explore potential solutions and guide them toward an agreement. Mediation can be used to resolve a wide range of disputes, including those related to family, business, and personal injury.

Benefits of Using Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Services Include:

  1. Time and cost savings: Compared to traditional court proceedings, mediation and ADR services can save parties significant time and money. They generally take less time to complete, require fewer court appearances, and are less expensive than going to trial.
  2. Control over the outcome: Parties involved in a mediation or ADR process have more control over the outcome of their dispute than they would in a court proceeding. Instead of leaving the decision in the hands of a judge or jury, the parties work together to create a mutually agreeable solution.
  3. Preservation of relationships: Mediation and ADR services can help preserve relationships between the parties involved in a dispute, as they encourage open communication and cooperation. This can be particularly important in disputes between family members, business partners, or coworkers.
  4. Confidentiality: The information shared during mediation or ADR services is generally confidential, which can be appealing to parties who want to keep their dispute out of the public eye.
  5. Customized solutions: Mediation and ADR services allow parties to create unique solutions to their disputes, rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all approach from the court system.
  6. Increased satisfaction: Parties who reach an agreement through mediation or ADR services are generally more satisfied with the outcome than those who go through a traditional court proceeding, as they have played an active role in creating the solution.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
