About Jeffrey R. Johnson, JRJ Mediation

I would be honored to utilize my mediation experience to help resolve your case.  Every mediation situation is unique and personal, and I bring a commitment to be thoroughly prepared to understand the issues most important to the participants and legal and practical analysis of each case.  Fresh perspective and creative thinking can work around even the most significant roadblocks, and I never give up seeking resolution to ensure the parties avoid the potential costs and risks of going to trial.
