    Judge Rosenbaum was widely regarded by plaintiff and defense counsel as a jurist who could settle cases because he knew the facts and understood the law when he served on the bench. His immense trial experience allowed him to paint a picture for clients which made them realize the strengths, weaknesses of their cases and risks of going to trial. Counsel can now benefit from having access to his skills as a mediator. I recently successfully mediated a medical malpractice case with Rosenbaum Mediations, PLLC . Judge Rosenbaum was effective at brokering a settlement that satisfied all parties using the same skills, patience and determination for which he is known. In addition his process for scheduling and attending the mediation is streamlined and effortless. In this multi-party case he easily handled a mix of parties appearing in person and by video. I look forward to mediating my next case with Judge Rosenbaum. Read less

The AAA is a not-for-profit […]

  • The Wisdom of Choosing a Retired Jurist for ADR

    Nov, 10 2020 | Arbitration, Mediation

    During this year of COVID-19, courthouses have been repeatedly challenged with closures and delayed start-ups. New York has been one of the more ambitious states to cautiously recommence civil trials, albeit at a slow pace. The many moving and complex parts of civil cases make it very difficult to break up the court log jams wrought by the pandemic. Consequently, attorneys and clients […]

  • Mediation, or Hostage Negotiation?

    Sep, 08 2020 | Arbitration, Mediation

    Two months ago, The Wall Street Journal published an interview with Christopher Voss – a former hostage negotiator for the FBI and current CEO of a company that trains people to negotiate – to get his take on how to handle difficult discussions. It actually turned out to be a fantastic primer on how parties and their attorneys can navigate difficult mediations as well. Here […]
