For experienced mediation professionals who would like guidance with the area of disaster mediation, please refer to the information
on Disaster Mediation Training.
For those who have suffered a loss due to a natural disaster and wish to mediate their claim, unfortunately the opportunity to do so
is often limited to cases with government sponsorship. Most disaster mediation occurs in the wake of a major disaster, such as
Hurricane Andrews in 1992 or Hurricane Katrina
in 2005. These are typically the circumstances under which the second party (typically an insurance company, but possibly a
government agency) will participate in mediation.
There are cases where two private parties are involved in a dispute resulting from a natural disaster, and both agree to resolve
the dispute using mediation. Mr. Rubin, as a pioneer of the field of disaster mediation, can expertly guide you and the other parties
involved through the mediation process to a successful outcome, whenever possible.
