Orlando Mediator blog now an official ABA "blawg"

Just a brief post to announce that the American Bar Association has officially listed this blog as one of its law blogs or "blawgs." The ABA's Blawg Directory is promoted by the distinguished ABA Journal online and is touted as a comprehensive directory of continually updated law blogs. Help this blawg reach the "Blawg 100," an annual listing of the top one hundred blawgs in the law, now in its fifth year. Details will be posted when voting opens this year and the hope is that this blog will be the first devoted to mediation to make the list. Thanks for your readership and continued support of this endeavor which is a labor of love published in the interest of expanding the use of mediation and alternative dispute resolution in the 21st century. My mediation practice began in 2001 and continues to push the envelope in creative use of ADR. As an example, recent topics include the use of early ESI mediation to avoid protracted E-Discovery battles, allowing parties in litigation to re-focus their cases on the merits. I look forward to continuing exploring new topics on this blawg as trends develop to keep professional neutrals and advocates alike abreast of the latest in this field.
