We litigate cases from pre-lawsuit through appeal, including mediations in between. Whether pursuing or defending, the NCS firm brings more than 300 collective years of experience in more than 20,000 cases since our establishment in 1980. We also have broader experiences informing our practice outside the courtroom, including but not limited to aviation and security. Our lawyers participate in larger communities, serving as coaches and referees in athletics and as board members and officers in arts and charitable organizations. We understand the bigger picture of life and maintain a balanced perspective as we work with clients throughout the legal process.

Adaptable and Innovative Mediators

Our mediators and arbitrators have the legal background, experience, professionalism, and adaptability to provide resolution to your complex business or construction dispute, personal injury case, insurance coverage matter or real estate dispute. NCS mediators have handled thousands of mediations involving these areas of dispute. In addition, the NCS arbitrators also handle commercial, insurance coverage, construction, and other types of disputes, that are redirected from courts. Our deep bench of mediators/arbitrators draws from the collective experience of practicing together for more than 40 years and benefits from the wisdom of Rick Norris and Pete Schroeder, pioneer mediators in Indiana.
