Gene is a frequent lecturer before State and local Bar associations, as well as at plaintiffs' attorney and defense counsel functions, on the subject of mediating and settling the most contentious of litigated cases.
Mr.Moscovitch is able to draw freely upon his highly acclaimed background as a trial attorney (70-80 jury trials) and his forty-five year career as a negotiator to find ways to settle the cases that others often label as impossible. His relentless and energetic pursuit of the settlement objective distinguishes him from others who merely "try to get it done". What do you get when you combine a keen intellect and strong work ethic with a warm and friendly demeanor ? A winning set of mediation skills which have consistently allowed Gene Moscovitch to achieve an extraordinary rate of settlement (over 90 %) and an unparalleled degree of client satisfaction.
Plaintiff and defense attorneys alike agree that Gene's consistently pragmatic approach, his practical insights into likely juror perceptions and probable Court rulings, and his ability to strongly empathize and identify with both parties, have all combined to make him one of California's most effective and busiest mediators. He currently mediates approximately 100-150 full day cases per year and also engages in mediation training activities both at home and abroad.
