David John is a refreshingly unique civil and appellate Florida mediator with over 30 years of actual experience with plaintiffs and defendants, that has uniquely prepared him to assist litigants to efficiently and cost effectively resolve disputes quickly and with dignity.
He has hands-on business experience in manufacturing, professional engineering consulting, construction, commercial & residential real-estate transactions and general business, and brings actual earned experience directly to the litigant parties during the dispute resolution process. His work has taken him to many parts of the world where he has gained valuable experience working with many ethic groups and cultures.
His belief is that Mediation is a quicker, voluntary process, that is less expensive, informal and private. Mediators assists as a neutral third party, the process often preserves relationships, are far less combatant and more flexible.
