[dropcap]F[/dropcap]loridians who are or may become involved in litigation should meet Aventura based mediation expert Marc Narotsky – a Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil and Family Mediator focusing on effective, cost efficient alternative dispute resolution.
“Dealing with legal issues can be emotionally as well as financially draining,” Nartosky explains. “Over the years, I’ve mediated over 1,000 cases involving issues such as real estate contractual disputes, business dissolutions, divorce and asset distribution, and insurance.”
Known for professionalism, statewide availability and competitive rates, diverse clients have benefitted greatly from Narotsky’s experience as a practicing attorney with highly specialized training acquired from pioneers in the mediation field. Narotsky agrees with former Chief Judge Joseph P. Farina, who recently stated, “Mediation, more often than not, turns out to be a very successful experience for litigants who can really save a lot of time and money.
“Everybody’s case is going to settle 99 percent of the time. Out of every100 cases filed, only about one percent ever get before a jury. Your case is most likely going to settle – it’s just a question of when and how much money you want to spend. So the smart thing to do is to try to mediate your case before the law suit is filed. If you’re already involved in litigation, get to mediation as soon as you can.”
A candidate for Aventura City Commissioner Seat 6, Narotsky is regarded as an emerging leader in the field of alternative dispute resolution. A Magna Cum Laude graduate of Brandeis University, he received his Juris Doctor from the University of Miami. After working in the mediation department of a local law firm, he went on to become a Florida Supreme Court certified civil and family mediator, a qualified arbitrator, approved mediator for the Florida Department of Financial Services and a certified mortgage foreclosure mediator. He also devotes his time to community service and guest lecturing on alternative dispute resolution at venues including Nova Southeastern University.
