Judge Mark A. Schuering (Ret.)

An Experienced and Economical Mediator

With knowledge gained through ample years of handling cases, Judge Mark A. Schuering is an expert in civil mediation and alternative dispute resolution.

Certified Civil Mediator

Now Offering Zoom Mediations

From my experience mediating and my years on the bench I have found that pursuing alternative dispute resolution (outside the court) removes uncertainty, reduces the costs of litigation and gives clients peace-of-mind and closure.

Voluntary mediation can be opportune when conducted:  (a) pre-suit; (b) after a lawsuit has been filed; (c) prior to trial; (d) post-trial / on appeal.

My training and certification as a civil mediator at the National Judicial College, 24 years of experience as a trial judge, plus over 10 years privately mediating cases, continues to benefit the attorneys and parties who utilize my services for alternative dispute resolution.

Attorneys and their clients may be certain I will continue to provide quality, economical, and trustworthy mediation services.

Thank you.
