Mediation is the non- litigation road to resolution, and, as a mediator, John is the guide. As every journey is different, so is every mediation. His exact role as a mediator- be it facilitative, evaluative, or transformative—is itself guided by the terrain. This includes the nature and substance of the dispute as well as the voluntary, contractual, or court-mandated origins of the process. He pays close attention to all personalities and elements involved so the best possible conclusion can be reached.
With years of experience and training, John H. Drucker is fully prepared to keep mediation on track, expediting the process where applicable without hurrying anyone along. He is an entirely trustworthy, always neutral individual with whom both parties can fully disclose their concerns. He is a perpetually attentive individual who strives to discover the most productive path in any dispute, directing the discourse in such a way that an amicable, cost-effective resolution can come to pass.
