About Jason Rosen
It is an honor and a joy to work with people resolving disputes through mediation.
I come to my mediation practice after years of litigating. I have represented both plantiffs and defendants.
My litigation experience ranges from A to Z and I have extensive training in Mediation and hold numerous program certificates.
My skills and personality are best suited as a mediator, helping parties reach productive solutions, using my innate ability for fruitful discussions.
I come to my mediation practice after years of litigating in a variety of subjects, including personal injury, municipal liability, police misconduct (i.e. excessive force, unlawful arrest, etc.), professional malpractice, employment, construction and product defect. I have represented both plaintiffs and defendants. While I enjoyed litigating (and working with fantastic people on both sides), I recognized that my skills and personality are best suited as a mediator, helping parties reach productive solutions.
As for my mediation style, I take the approach that gets the job done. Extensive pre-mediation work, including conversations with both sides, helps determine what that will look like. I also have an innate ability to “read the room” and help set the best environment for fruitful discussions. If a party wants me to employ an evaluative style (assessing the respective positions and potential outcomes of an issue) I am well-equipped to do so. However, strategic discussion and questions with the parties often allows them to come to their own conclusions.
I am a strong proponent of early mediation. The reasons for early mediation are numerous, and the rationale is sound. Quite simply: If you don’t make an attempt to resolve your conflicts at an early stage, you may eliminate the possibility of reaching the best solution. However, it is never too late to mediate, as many cases are settled “on the courthouse steps” even when the parties may think attempts to negotiate will be futile.
I have a Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) from Willamette University College of Law and have extensive additional training through Pepperdine Law School Straus Institute’s “Mediating the Litigated Case” program, King County Dispute Resolution Center, and numerous other programs.
I am also a certified Rule 39.1 mediator for the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington’s Alternative Dispute Resolution program, and am rated “AV” (the highest rating for legal ability and ethics) through Martindale-Hubbell.
“I highly recommend Jason as a mediator. Mutual clients tell me he is a fantastic mediator, and I personally know him to be a great guy.”
Kubik Mediation Group
“Jason is a thoughtful, hard-working and effective mediator. He does not give in when a settlement looks difficult–even impossible–to achieve. Two of the most important characteristics of an effective mediator are preparation and follow-through, and Jason is terrific at both.”
Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell LLP
Thomas B. Nedderman
“Jason mediated two cases that seemed unlikely to settle without his efforts. As a mediator, he intrinsically connects with people on both sides of an issue, and introduces creative ideas to bridge the gap. I recommend Jason and look forward to working with him again.”
Floyd, Plueger & Ringer, P.S.
