Michael R. Diliberto, Esq. is an internationally recognized mediator and arbitrator. Since 2003, he has settled thousands of cases with complex facts and legal issues, earning a reputation as an accomplished mediator who can resolve even the most difficult cases. He skillfully helps the parties engage in respectful and tactful conversations and works hard to keep that dialogue moving forward in a constructive manner along the bumpy road to a settlement agreement.
Mr. Diliberto has the skills of a diplomat who can reframe issues to avoid impasse, the experience of a trial lawyer who has walked the same path with similar clients, and the evaluation skills of a trial judge who has seen it all. His professional and life experiences (including work that enabled him to travel around the world and interact with various cultures), allow him to serve as a trusted neutral who can connect with the parties in a meaningful manner and find creative ways to settle disputes.
Mr. Diliberto recognizes that mediation presents the unique opportunity to solidify relationships between attorneys and their clients, repair and restore relationships between the parties when applicable, and help parties make wise choices to untangle themselves from conflict and move on with their lives. He is adept at gracefully guiding the parties towards an agreement, instead of strong-arming a settlement at all costs.
