Best Mediator in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Brian Jerome is the first attorney who comes to mind for me when choosing a mediator. He has settled every case that he has mediated for me. He has a excellent demeanor and clients always feel comfortable with him. He works hard to get the case settled.

Brian Jerome is the perfect choice for ADR services
As someone who has mediated hundreds of cases over the past 25 years, I can honestly state, without any hesitation, that Brian Jerome is among the best of the best. Brian provides both sides of every dispute with a comfortable and unpressured environment within which to resolve their disputes. He has a wonderful mediation style that has been successful in resolving a wide range of complex cases submitted by our firm over the past 20 years.

Wonderful to work with, very fair, definite expert in his field.
Attorney Jerome was the arbitrator for my recent case. I was nervous about the hearing, but he put me at ease immediately - what a nice guy! During the arbitration, he was an attentive listener and very precise with his questioning and gave me the confidence to tell my story. Both lawyers seemed to enjoy working with him, and the award he gave on my case was fair to everyone. I would recommend Brian Jerome to anyone seeking a great arbitrator.
