Mediation

Wiley is an experienced qualified neutral mediator under Minnesota General Rule of Practice 114.  Wiley’s years of experience in a variety of legal areas makes him the ideal choice to mediate your case.  His depth of understanding in employment law, labor law, public law, civil rights law, and commercial law make him uniquely suited to assess the strengths and weakness of your case, and to help each party understand the risks inherent in pursuing litigation rather than resolution.

Wiley has leveraged his experience as a litigator and as in-house counsel in mediation situations.  He recognizes the interests that each party to a case may have in seeking an alternative way to resolve their dispute, and knows the costs of a prolonged litigated case.
