Jeff Merrick – Portland-Area Mediator, Merrick Mediation

Practice/Organization Description

I truly enjoy my work as a mediator. I believe that skilled, professional mediators make a positive difference. Mediators must be the calm center, persistent and patient, and quick to grasp the subtleties of personality, facts and law. Then, we must employ the appropriate tools of our trade to facilitate understanding and forward movement toward resolution.

I work with the parties to determine the process that best suits their circumstances. Sometimes, that means negotiating in the same room, sometimes in different rooms, and sometimes a hybrid process offers the best opportunity for success. I do not believe that “one size fits all.”

I am on the mediation panel for the American Arbitration Association and the U.S. District Court for Oregon. I am approved as a General Civil Mediator for the state courts of Oregon, and I am on the panel for adverse health care incident mediation through the Oregon Patient Safety Commission.

I am a member of the Oregon Mediation Association, and I follow the OMA Standards of Practice and OMA Guidelines.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here for you.
