(PITTSBURGH) April 28, 2022 – Bernstein-Burkley P.C. Bankruptcy and Restructuring partner Keri P. Ebeck has recently completed he 40-hour training to become a Mediator for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Keri’s background will encompass consumer and commercial bankruptcy matters, including but not limited to mortgage litigation.
Per the Western District of Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Court, Mediation is a simple and informal settlement process in which the Mediator acts as a facilitator to assist the parties in reaching an agreement. The Mediator holds joint conferences with all parties as well as private separate conferences with the parties to discuss the facts, issues, and risks. The Mediator’s experience and understanding of the issues and neutral perspective enhance the possibility of reaching a settlement by agreement of the parties.
In mediation, the mediator does not act as a judge and does not make any decision about who is right or wrong. In arbitration, the parties present their witnesses and evidence to the arbitrator who decides the case in favor of one or more of the parties. Mediation is more informal and is more of a collaborative process than arbitration. A mediation can be scheduled anywhere the parties and mediator agree. Usually, it takes place in a conference room at a location convenient to all parties and can resolve many disputes in a half-day or less.
