Why hire a certified mediator for your civil litigation case in Georgia?

What does it mean when a lawyer says he or she is a certified mediator in Georgia? Not every attorney meets the requirements because not every lawyer focuses on pursuing resolutions through sound methods of alternative dispute resolution.

Dedication, time and energy

To become a Georgia State Bar Board-Certified Mediator, an attorney must complete 28 hours of approved classroom training and supervised coursework. But book learning isn't enough. The candidate for certification must also observe and serve as co-mediator in five general civil mediations or, in place of actual mediation cases, complete an additional 12 hours of hands-on mediation practice. However, Mr. Hawk has participated in hundreds of mediations in various types of cases during his career. This experience is invaluable when selecting a mediator.

What certification means for the client

For the client seeking to resolve a civil litigation matter through mediation, having a certified mediator means confidence. Confidence that the process steps will be followed according to law. Confidence that the parties involved will have a non-partial professional guiding their settlement negotiations. Confidence that the final proposed resolution will be acceptable to the courts adjudicating the case.

In Macon, Georgia, the certified mediation professional to turn to is attorney Jon R. Hawk. Since beginning practice in 1997, Mr. Hawk has represented clients across a broad range of civil litigation matters in jurisdictions throughout Georgia.
