Description of Practice
I am putting my decades of litigation experience to work as a full-time Neutral I am ready to serve as a trained Arbitrator, Family Law Mediator & Florida Supreme Court Circuit Civil Certified Mediator. I have always been a trial lawyer, government lawyer and foreclosure lawyer, among other areas. I have been a trial attorney with the highest ratings granted.

My goal as a mediator is to identify and, if necessary, create common ground. Knowing the law and human nature facilitates that creating of common ground. Such common ground almost inevitably exists, but is only manifested with the improved communications and the creative doses of logic and reality that I believe I can bring to the process. Mediation has the capability of identifying & creating or delivering a common ground not easily found in any other manner. The mediation process requires a mediator to possess excellent litigation skills & knowledge, combined with talents like those exhibited throughout Clark Jordan-Holmes’ career. As your mediator, Clark Jordan-Holmes can help increase your chances of capturing the advantages the mediation process can offer.
