Description

For some, mediation is a convenient, cost-effective way to avoid a trial. For others, it’s a compromise that leaves them if not the winner, at least not the loser. Regardless of why a party might seek mediation and settlement, it’s imperative to understand the cost/benefit of mediation, to evaluate the likelihood of success, and to understand the parameters of mediation.

This informative CLE course will review the process of mediation from start to finish including how to broach the topic with a client, how to choose a mediator and how to evaluate the value of the case at hand. The course will include the process for mediation and negotiations and the various paths for arriving at a settlement.

Lecturer Bio

Jaime A. Koziol, Esq.

Jaime Koziol graduated from DePaul University College of Law in May 2011 and began working at Levin & Perconti in April 2012.

Prior to joining the firm, Jaime clerked for a personal injury and medical malpractice firm, and this experience sparked her desire to advocate for those seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligence of others. Jaime is committed to reaching the best results for her each of her clients, and realizes that most victims and families have never been involved in a lawsuit. Therefore, Jaime understands the importance of frequent communication with her clients and makes a point to reach out to them during each step of the litigation process. According to Jaime, “When working with clients, I strive to always be accessible to them, and always available to answer their questions and address their concerns.”

As an associate, Jaime plays a key role in a number of complex medical malpractice, nursing home, wrongful death and personal injury matters. Jaime is involved in all steps of the litigation process, including case intake, drafting and filing complaints, and taking depositions. Currently, Jaime is working on a variety of cases, including a birth injury/medical malpractice case, a hospital fall lawsuit, and many nursing home negligence cases.

In law school, Jaime was honored in the spring of 2011 with the CALI Award for Excellence in Mediation. She was also named to the Dean’s List in the fall of 2008 and was a recipient of Law Merit Scholarship from 2008 to 2011. During her second year of law school, Jaime was chosen as a member of the Research Staff of the DePaul Business and Commercial Law Journal, and in her third year served as Managing Editor of Lead Articles.

Outside of work, Jaime volunteers with the Coordinated Advice and Referral Program for Legal Services hotline, a service that offers free legal advice for low-income residents of Cook County. Jaime graduated in 2008 from Miami University with a B.A. in Speech Communication and Journalism. She grew up in Prospect Heights, IL and graduated from Saint Viator High School. She now lives in Chicago and enjoys travelling and spending time with family and friends.
