With over 30 years of experience as a civil trial lawyer, Rowland was elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) in 1993. However, although he has experienced success as a litigator, Rowland asserts that mediation is always the best first approach to any dispute. “Being in an active trial law practice, I understand the economics, stress, uncertainties, time and value of the money involved in litigation,” says Rowland. “Having tried cases, I can relate to what a judge or jury is likely to do. Because I am still in an active practice, I make it a point to know the judge’s and jury’s tendencies and relate these to my clients when we are in the process of mediation.”
It is this insider knowledge of the process of litigation that helps many of Rowland’s mediation sessions reach a successful resolution. “When clients understand what is at stake if they can’t resolve the matter on their own, they are more driven to reach a solution without going through the courts,” says Rowland.
Having served as a mediator/arbitrator for over 500 cases, Rowland also has extensive experience as a Judge Pro Tem. He is a member of the Association of Attorney Mediators and holds the attributes of credibility, honesty, confidentiality and effectiveness as the top attributes a mediator can possess. “I believe a mediator should do no harm to the parties, attorneys or the process,” says Rowland. “I persevere, work hard and think outside the box.”
