The firm provides mediation services to litigants through its Managing Partner, trial attorney E. Frederick Straub. Mediation as a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution has become a significant part of trial practice. Mr. Straub, in an effort to utilize his vast trial experience in addition to experience in the discovery and settlement of civil cases, has become certified by the Commonwealth of Kentucky Court of Justice as a civil mediator. Certification requires a 40-hour course of study, working as a mediator under a mentor and requires annual continuing education. Rick has participated in courses nationally to assure that he maintains his skills and mediates cases regularly at the request of insurers and attorneys.
