Results achieved early in a case by motion practice or later at trial are only worthwhile if they can be protected on appeal. Campolo, Middleton & McCormick has written and successfully argued appeals in a wide variety of cases in both State and Federal court.
Insurance clients, either the carrier or the insured, often feel frustrated as a result of being represented by lawyers who do not respond to their individual needs. We understand and address the needs of both the claims professional and insured through a targeted and aggressive approach to litigation. As a result, defending third-party lawsuits and representing insurance carriers in alternate dispute settings is a cornerstone of the practice.

The firm assists clients in resolving disputes without litigation through various alternative dispute resolution procedures, including nonbinding and binding arbitration, mediation, mini-trials, summary jury trials, expert fact-finding and early neutral evaluation. We also structure dispute resolution contract clauses for inclusion in client contracts, represent clients in individually tailored ADR proceeding and serve as arbitrators, mediators and other neutrals in ADR proceedings.
