At Hearn Law, we recognize the importance of mediation

Mediation stands as a cornerstone of effective conflict resolution, offering parties an alternative avenue to resolve disputes with the assistance of a neutral third-party mediator. At Hearn Law, we recognize the importance of mediation in fostering constructive dialogue and facilitating mutually beneficial agreements between conflicting parties.


Trina Hearn, a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, brings a wealth of experience and insight to the mediation process. With a background in litigating and trying cases, Mrs. Hearn offers parties a unique perspective informed by her comprehensive understanding of legal complexities and courtroom dynamics. As your mediator, Trina Hearn is committed to facilitating a fair, efficient, and successful mediation process, guiding parties toward mutually beneficial resolutions, and helping them move forward with confidence and clarity.



  • Mediations are booked in half day or full day sessions.
  • Reserve enough time.  People mediating a case involving high risk exposure, multiple parties, coverage issues or other complex features often benefit from having a full day to mediate the case. Having enough time to work through issues and negotiations maximizes settlement opportunity.  Contact Trina@HearnLawPL.com  if you want to discuss whether to reserve a full day for a particular mediation.
  • Morning mediations begin at 9 a.m. Afternoon mediations begin at 1:30 p.m. If you require an alternative start time, request it in the Notes section of the Intake Form.
  • Full day mediations begin at any time agreed to by the Parties.

A Collaborative Approach to Conflict Resolution and Settlement Agreements
Mediation operates on the principle of collaboration rather than confrontation, providing a forum for parties to openly discuss their concerns, interests, and goals in a non-adversarial setting. Mrs. Hearn works diligently to create an environment conducive to productive communication and problem-solving, empowering parties to explore creative solutions and reach a consensus that aligns with their respective needs and priorities.
Guided by Impartiality and Confidentiality
As mandated by statutes and rules governing mediation, Mrs. Hearn maintains strict impartiality and confidentiality throughout the process, ensuring fairness and neutrality in facilitating negotiations. All discussions held during mediation sessions are strictly confidential, fostering trust and promoting candid dialogue among parties without fear of disclosure. This commitment to confidentiality allows parties to freely express their perspectives and explore potential resolutions without compromising their legal positions.
Benefits of Mediation
Mediation offers numerous benefits over traditional litigation, including increased control over the outcome of the dispute, expedited resolution timelines, and cost savings for all involved parties. By engaging in mediation, parties retain autonomy over the decision-making process, avoid the uncertainty and expense of protracted courtroom battles, and foster long-term cooperative relationships conducive to future collaboration.
