About me

Warren Fitzgerald is a civil mediator with more than thirty years experience as a trial lawyer.  He has a wide range of experience successfully mediating cases of many types and in many areas including personal injury and wrongful death, premises liability, product liability, business disputes, real estate disputes, construction, labor and employment, intellectual property, professional, legal and medical malpractice, trusts and estates, admiralty and maritime, property damage, insurance coverage disputes, environmental contamination, premises liability, mass tort and class actions.
Having represented both plaintiffs and defendants as a trail lawyer, he brings something different to the table than other mediators. He handled and tried to juries many complicated cases of the same types which he now helps settle as a mediator.
