Neutral  |  ADR

ADR Consulting includes educating parties about the kinds of ADR processes they might want to consider for resolving a particular dispute, and advising on the selection of Neutrals. Ms. Samaras has rendered such services to clients as both outside and in-house counsel, drawing from her experience as a Neutral, and her use of various ADR processes to settle cases.

Case Presentation Feedback (or Mock Hearing) includes a neutral’s evaluation of a trial counsel’s presentation (e.g., how legal arguments and evidence are presented) for the purpose of strengthening the persuasiveness of a presentation before an adjudicator (e.g., judges or arbitrator). Ms. Samaras brings her extensive experience as an arbitrator, litigator, and judge in mock appeals to providing case evaluation services to trial counsel.
