Jeff Trueman

Helping lawyers & parties manage conflict & negotiate resolution.

I mediate conflict because I am drawn to meaningful conversations with people at a time when they need to make significant decisions. I appreciate the power of listening and dialogue – it saved my marriage and changed my life.

Past director of dispute resolution for the Circuit Court for Baltimore City and solo practicing attorney.

ADR Experience

  • Experienced in a wide variety of litigated and pre-litigated conflict resolution.
  • Conducted over 1,500 mediations and settlement conferences.
  • Specializing in interpersonal conflict. Manager of difficult conversations.
  • Emphasizing pre-session preparation. Patient listener. Creative closer.


My goal is to help parties find a way to solve problems and resolve conflict. My job starts the minute I accept a case. I work until it’s settled.

My style may change over the life of a case, adapting to the needs and requests of the parties. Expect me to listen, ask questions, negotiate, problem-solve, evaluate, propose, and at times direct. We will have frank discussions about the risks and potential benefits of resolving the dispute through negotiation instead of litigation.

I am comfortable using technologies such as audio/video conferencing, texting, and other tools that increase efficiency and reduce costs.
