Mark’s extensive experience allows him to speak candidly to both sides about the strengths and weaknesses of their case and how it may be received by a judge, jury, or arbitrator.

“I am a firm believer in the mediation process and its ability to place control back in the hands of the parties, who are often rightfully apprehensive about the uncertainty of the litigation process,” said Mark J. Chumley, Partner at Keating Muething & Klekamp PLL. “Having successfully mediated many employment disputes I understand and can address the issues that often serve as an impediment to resolving a case.”
