Practice limited to service as mediator in civil matters other than domestic relations.
NARRATIVE:

As an associate, and later partner in the Northern Kentucky law firm of Busald, Funk & Zevely, P.S.C., I represented plaintiffs in personal injury, medical malpractice, F.E.L.A. and product liability cases for over 14 years, and also defended cases for insurance companies and several Kentucky counties. Defense work was about 10% of my practice there. Subsequently, I worked in-house for The Cincinnati Insurance Company for 11+ years defending and trying lawsuits for doctors, dentists, small businesses and individuals. During the last 25 years I have participated as an attorney representing my clients in mediation and negotiation of hundreds of cases and claims. I have also completed intensive mediation training at the Capitol University Law School in Columbus, Ohio. I currently volunteer time several days per month at the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas as a mediator. I have mediated many cases as of October, 2014, including both private and volunteer mediations. The cases run from personal injury and malpractice to employment law and contract litigation.
