Experienced Mediation and Arbitration

Litigation Avoidance  ●  Prompt Resolution  ●  Successful Conclusion


Rick Norris and Pete Schroeder have maintained active mediation practices for more than 30 years, having participated in Indiana’s initial mediation pilot program. As a result of their early mediation training, Norris and Schroeder were among the first certified mediators in Indiana in 1992. Since then, two experienced NCS attorneys have joined the mediation team, increasing our capacity and further solidifying this highly reputable NCS practice area. Additional mediators include Tom Bays and Mary Jo Wedding.

Mediation and arbitration continue to play an integral part in Norris Choplin Schroeder’s approach to legal matters. NCS attorneys have been selected to act as mediators and arbitrators in a broad range of cases based upon years of litigation and trial experience. Our mediators understand your goals and will help you achieve them. Visit our Mediation, Arbitration, and Appraisal page for more in-depth information about this practice or scroll down to schedule online.
