Eugenio A. Moreno M.
Eugenio wholeheartedly believes in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and in the effectiveness of professionally managed mediations to resolve disputes. ADR is a proven alternative to traditional legal courses of action and the high emotional and financial costs often associated with those options. He attained certifications from the Florida Supreme Court to support all aspects of County, Circuit-Civil and Family mediation cases. His collaborative skills and experience are invaluable and serve to assist parties in conflict toward a peaceful and mutually beneficial resolution to their dispute. Eugenio fully engages & builds rapport with the parties using his interpersonal skills & trust-building techniques, thus fostering a productive, non-adversarial mediation environment conducive to successful settlements and agreements.
Eugenio has being developing his experience in Florida, USA, as a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator, being involved with diverse and very interesting types of County, Circuit-Civil and Family mediations.
