Through their substantial courtroom experience in a wide variety of cases, Walsh Pancio attorneys have gained a reputation as unbiased, meticulous, and understanding. Based on that reputation, the firm’s attorneys are routinely called upon—by plaintiffs and defendants alike—to serve as private third-party neutrals in mediations, arbitrations, and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. Not only have our attorneys had great success as advocates, but our attorneys have been recognized by multiple courts to serve in a number of roles where they were fortunate to help litigants resolve their disputes outside the courtroom. The Honorable Joseph P. Walsh draws upon his experience as a former judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County in resolving many different types of cases, and continues to serve the county as a civil case master, where he frequently assists parties in resolving active civil matters. Bruce Pancio, Esq. served as member of the Montgomery Bar Association’s Center for Mediation and Arbitration, and was appointed by the President Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery as a discovery master.
The firm uses this experience, along with its substantial breadth of experience in litigating cases in state and federal throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to help parties work in a productive manner toward a mutually beneficial result. All mediations, arbitrations, and third party neutral proceedings are conducted with an entirely unbiased and neutral examination of the facts, law, and circumstances. Where appropriate, the firm uses advanced communication technology for these proceedings at the agreement of the parties.
