Florida Mediator Brandon S. Peters
MAITLAND/ORLANDO, Fla. (July 18, 2014) -- Upchurch Watson White & Max is pleased to announce that Florida mediator Brandon S. Peters
will join the firm effective Aug. 1, 2014. Mr. Peters currently operates a successful sole practice, imMEDIATE RESOLUTION LLC, and he intends to offer the same high-level services as dispute resolution counsel for UWWM.
He recently described his unique value as a mediator. “I work differently,” he said. “I challenge the status quo to achieve better outcomes. I do that by focusing on the people involved in a mediation conference before I focus on the issues. It is important to know my audience and to know what factors –- emotional or otherwise –- may be driving negotiations. This helps me do my job more effectively.”
UWWM leaders explained what the new addition will mean for the group and its clients. "Brandon Peters brings experience, unbridled enthusiasm and creativity to our practice," firm principal and CEO John Upchurch
said. "His intellectual curiosity and willingness to explore unconventional approaches to vexing conflicts blend perfectly with the demands of our sophisticated clientele in today's complex litigation environment."
Other salient chapters from Mr. Peters' biography include his studies at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the University of Virginia Law School. He is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell, a member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals and a panel member of the American Arbitration Association.
Mr. Peters has long been active in his community as a director of the United Safety Council since 2000 and a director of Project Walk Orlando from 2009 to 2013. His continuing involvement in the Orange County Bar Association features service on many committees, including appellate practice, business law, construction law, family law, in-house counsel, insurance law, labor and employment, professionalism, and solo and small-firm practice.
He lives in Longwood with his wife, Stacey, and their five sons, four dogs and a cat.
