Alternative Dispute Resolution
Helping parties avoid the uncertainty and cost of litigation in the courts, through mediation or arbitration, and achieving a timely and just result are the guiding principles of Ferro Labella & Weiss’s highly regarded ADR practice.
Often, the skills and experience of a mediator or arbitrator are the most critical factors in achieving a successful ADR outcome. Fortunately for clients, FLW’s alternative dispute resolution practice is co-chaired by two of New Jersey’s most experienced and effective jurists: the Honorable Peter E. Doyne, (Ret.) and the Honorable Robert P. Contillo, (Ret.).
Judge Doyne is a distinguished, twenty-two-year veteran of the New Jersey Judiciary, having served as Presiding Judge of the Chancery Division, Presiding Judge of the Law Division and ultimately as Assignment Judge for the Bergen County Vicinage. Before his elevation to the Bench, Judge Doyne was a prolific practicing litigator and trial lawyer in the state and federal courts.
Judge Contillo, a distinguished sixteen-year veteran of the New Jersey Judiciary, served twelve years in the Chancery Division and eight as Presiding Judge, handling both General Equity and Probate cases. Before his elevation to the Bench, Judge Contillo maintained a well regarded commercial law practice.
Judge Mizdol is a distinguished, fifteen-year veteran of the New Jersey Judiciary, having served as Assignment Judge of Bergen County for eight years, and was appointed to the Superior Court in February 2006. Judge Mizdol served as Presiding Judge of the Family Part of Bergen from 2008 through April 2015.
Attorneys and clients who have worked with Judges Doyne and Contillo can attest to the fact that their insights, dedication, commitment, and results are exceptional.
