About

Professional neutral Frank Bedell provides experienced mediation and arbitration services for commercial and liability clients in Orlando and throughout the State of Florida. A commercial trial lawyer and veteran dispute resolution practitioner, Frank has more than 35 years of experience in helping parties find the best way to resolve legal conflicts.

Frank offers alternative dispute resolution services through productive, problem-solving venues to individuals, businesses and corporations that wish to avoid costly courtroom battles. He makes himself available to serve the dispute resolution needs of Florida’s legal community and its clients.

When parties engage in mediation by agreement or by court order, Frank is committed to helping them optimize case outcomes and arrive at a resolution to their dispute. Sometimes, when a case needs to be tried but the parties want to avoid the courtroom, arbitration may be the best option. In arbitration, all parties agree to dispute resolution by an arbitrator or arbitration panel. Frank is a respected Florida arbitrator known for being fair-minded and impartial, and knowledgeable in diverse subject matters of dispute.

In many cases, Frank Bedell is retained to cut to the chase early in the process — before fortunes are spent — to thoroughly explore the interests of all parties and determine if an effective resolution to the dispute can be reached without the need for trial.
