David Fuqua has been a mediator and arbitrator for over 30 years. His experience in these roles includes mediation of a wide variety of cases, including personal injury, employment disputes, contract and business matters and family law litigation. David has handled numerous arbitrations, both as the sole arbitrator and as a member of arbitration panels, dealing with business and contract disputes and employment matters. He brings to the work of mediation his sense of fairness and belief that problems are best solved by agreement. If parties have bound themselves to arbitration and the dispute cannot be settled, the choice of an arbitrator is critical because there is no appeal from the arbitration award. The arbitrator has the duty to judge the facts fairly, without bias or prejudice for or against any party, and to be mindful of the law as it applies to the case. David’s dedication to honesty, high ethical standards, and the exercise of good judgment tempered by over 30 years of law practice serves him well in the roles of mediator and arbitrator.
