WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Matthew Brickman made the opening statement, "As a mediator I may be viewed as a professional peacemaker but that's technically not true...as a mediator I simply help the parties change their viewpoint and possibly their attitude towards a particular situation or one another so that they can choose to receive peace in their own life."

Mr. Brickman is currently one of the leading family mediators in South Florida serving West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Juno Beach and the greater Palm Beach County area. He has been fortunate enough to enjoy a record number of mediations in recent years and share his wisdom through those experiences.
He addressed this by saying, "In 2016, I had the honor and privilege of being chosen to conduct 273 mediations in 365 days. Of those 273 couples, 170 couples chose to receive peace and settle their case in mediation, 103 couples chose to move forward and litigate their case surrendering all decision making authority to a judge to decide their fate."
He went on to give the financial data on couples who choose to litigate, "Most cases I'm told are at minimum $10,000 per person. It doesn't take a great mathematical mind to see that for these 170 couples who chose to receive peace and chose to settle their own case - collectively $3,400,000 in legal fees were saved."
