What makes Judith Meyer of JP Meyer Commercial Dispute Solutions unique as a mediator?

1. Her demonstration of empathy to the parties.

“Judy made my client feel that she had her day in court. My client felt good about resolving the matter and putting it behind her. My client had just been going through some difficult times […] I felt that Judith was very sensitive to the needs of my client. That helped.”
Plaintiff Counsel, Apr/12 Philedelphia, PA

“I felt comfortable with Judith Meyer as the Mediator. She demonstrates understanding and shows empathy. I felt supported and she understood the key points of the case. We all wanted to get the matter settled that day and she did her best to make it happen.”
Plaintiff, Apr/12 Montgomery County, PA

“I find that Judith Meyer is able to relate well to Plaintiffs. She shows empathy to them and ensures that their needs are dealt with and validated. In this last case, Judith set the tone so that we could settle the case. She helped mollify the Plaintiff […] Judith is very patient and calm; she is not judgmental. Some mediators become frustrated and want to put their stamp on the mediation. I have not experienced that with Judith.”
Defence Counsel, Apr/12 Philadelphia, PA

“Yes, absolutely, she was very warm to me. There is no doubt that she was neutral but it seemed to me that she knew that the other side was being unfair. I felt Judith Meyer really empathized for me.”
Plaintiff, Jun/12 Philadelphia, PA

2. Her business focus & her ability to make a business case as motivation to settle the dispute.

“Judith Meyer always made it clear to the parties and their Counsels that there was a valid business reason to settle the case early. As Mediator, Judy made it clear that it would cost much much more (potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars) to litigate than to settle it now. She maintained that focus right from the start and it was a very helpful thing. … Judy was the voice of reason and there was no question of her neutrality.
Defence Counsel, Apr/12 Philadelphia, PA

“I was at extreme risk of losing my business license […] her approach helped us make a much smarter business decision. It is now six months later, I again have a thriving and profitable business […] otherwise if we had continued with litigation, we would still be at it.”
Plaintiff, Jun/12 Philadelphia, PA

“My client and I went into the mediation thinking we were going in for one issue. An hour in, the other side used it as an opportunity to (cover another matter). That put Judith in a tough situation. She used her skills as a Mediator to keep the parties working together to come to another resolution. She helped my Client extend his business another six to eight months with some good options […] Judith really did earn her stripes […] she had to shift gears majorly […] she did a very good job.”
Plaintiff Counsel, Apr/12 Harrisburg, PA

3. Her ability to get to the “heart of the dispute”.

“Judith is very good at cutting to the heart of the dispute. She doesn’t waste a lot of time on irrelevant issues that would sidetrack the mediation and not lead to a productive result.”
Defence Counsel, May/12 Harrisburg, PA

“What happened was that Judith Meyer of J.P. Meyer Commercial Dispute Solutions really jumped to what was the heart of the commercial dispute was about and that really helped […] she accomplished a lot by running the mediation the way she did […] we reached a framework to settle.”
Defence Counsel, Apr/12 New York, NY

4. Her commitment to help the parties get to a resolution.

Refer to the quotes in “What did you Value the Most?” below:

5. Her preparation for the mediation.

“I thought she was well prepared, she had read the material and she understood the case. She was not afraid to weigh in on what the court might do. She was very effective in getting the other side to promote a resolution. I think she was helpful in getting us to a solution. She helped foster a compromise that I didn’t expect, as my client was willing to take less to get a resolution […] I didn’t think this was a case that would settle without some court involvement first.”
Plaintiff Counsel, Apr/12 Philadelphia, PA

“She was very prepared and very effective, I also liked her personality.”
Defence Counsel, Apr/12 New York, NY

“We had a lot of complicated factual issues. She was prepared and organized and helped to sort out the matters.”
Plaintiff Counsel, May/12 New Castle, DE

Other comments from Mediation Clients and the Parties


“Judith Meyer understands the process and that is important. She doesn’t impose her thoughts or decisions on the parties. She tends to allow the parties to come together to make their decision. It is not a mediator’s job to be the judge. As a result, the parties leave with their own decision […] happier as a result.”
Defence Counsel, Apr/12 Princeton, NJ


“The mediation was disjointed and the parties were clearly not getting back together. But, Judith Meyer was the conduit. She helped make it a smooth process, it got us where we needed to be. Without a mediator, a good one that both parties trusted, a solution would not have occurred.”
Plaintiff Counsel, Apr/12 Cherry Hill, New Jersey
