Mediation is an economical way for willing litigants to resolve their disputes and avoid the expensive and stressful ordeal of a trial. Whether it produces a favorable outcome for all participants, however, depends heavily upon the experience, neutrality, and legal knowledge of the person conducting the mediation.
Spear, Spear & Hamby’s Mediation Team consists of three seasoned professionals, Mark E. Spear, G. Randall Spear, and David A. Hamby, Jr., all of whom have more than twenty years of litigation experience representing plaintiffs and defendants before state and federal courts in a variety of civil matters.
Mark, a 1979 graduate of the Cumberland School of Law, is certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and maintains an active case load in the areas of property, subrogation, casualty, products liability, personal injury, and bad faith litigation.
Randy, a 1982 Cumberland graduate licensed in both Alabama and Florida, has served as lead counsel in more than 150 cases tried to a verdict before juries and devotes his practice to matters involving property subrogation, personal injury, and products liability.
David, a 1984 graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law, maintains an active case load in the areas of construction defect litigation, workers compensation, subrogation, personal injury, and products liability, in addition to serving as a mediator in construction and other civil litigations.
Over the years, Mark, Randy, and David have acquired an intimate understanding of the negotiation process. As certified civil mediators, they are trained to deal equitably and confidentially with all parties to attain a fair, satisfactory resolution to their disagreements. With their commitment to impartiality and dedication to achieving agreeable settlements, they have earned the respect of both litigating attorneys and their clients.
Our Mediation Team recognizes the cost-reducing benefits of settling legal issues outside the courtroom in a non-adversarial manner and stands ready to serve you and your client’s mediation needs.
