A mediation cannot be successful without a measure of trust in the mediator and between the parties.  On this edition of Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen and co-host, Teddy Snyder, Esq. welcome Seth J. Davis, a private mediator and the sole proprietor of ADJ Mediation Services, to discuss the ethics of structured settlements for lawyers and mediators.  Larry, Teddy and Seth take a look at the preparation of a structured settlement proposal, the duties of the plaintiff attorney when advising the plaintiff on a structured settlement, the area of public benefits and the impact of the ethical rules on mediations.

Two expert guests help sort through the very important range of ethics issues encountered in mediation and negotiation of lawsuits during settlement. Join Ringler Radio host, Larry Cohen of Ringler, first with Professor Judith McKay from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. She is also a mediator, arbitrator, and attorney who brings insight to standards for mediation under the purview of State Supreme Courts – similar to the practice of law and should mediators put a value on a case? And join special guest, Professor Edward Conlon, Associate Dean at Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame, who is an expert in conflict management, a writer and researcher. Find out about the drama of negotiation, distinguishing between truth and half-truths and other challenges in settlement negotiations.

Lawyers have ‘the Code of Professional Responsibility or the Rules of Professional Conduct’ – standards to which they must adhere that are set by the Supreme Court of the states in which they practice. But there are many other pieces to the ‘ethics in litigation’ puzzle. Join Ringler Radio host, Larry Cohen from Ringler with special guest, Professor John Freeman from the University of South Carolina’s School of Law as they tackle issues like client confidentiality, discovery abuse, settlement confidentiality and the ethical consideration for an attorney to be sure the client understands what is going on in his/her case. Freeman holds the John Campbell Chair at USC and has also testified as an expert witness and served as trial counsel in many cases that involved the subject of ethics.
