Retired Judge Angela Bartell  -  "Having appeared in front of her a handful of times in Dane County in years past in a number of different family law cases, I always found her analysis to be intelligent and fair, regardless of whether the outcome was to my client’s favor or not.  She has a good way with speaking to litigants, too – such that they understand what she’s saying, in my observation." ~Attorney review.

We have worked with Garrick as well on collaborative cases and mediation or pro se cases. He is always a wealth of information for our clients and they are always extremely happy that they worked with him. His fees are fair and, if clients pay close attention when they work with him, they truly receive double or triple the value of the paid service as he also educates clients on their finances and suggests options for them going forward. His service to clients is always supreme. Clients should also know that he helps to educate judges and commissioners, who regard him highly."

I have mediated over 200 custody cases. I have recently returned to Madison and I am practicing law and mediation as Leeper Law and Mediation.  I am willing to travel and my fees are quite reasonable- in comparison to many. I enjoy mediation and I am looking forward to starting up again. I am teaching a graduate course on Conflict Mediation and Negotiation: Theory and Skills. I will be back by the end of April 2008. I practice a process and relational mediation as opposed to more evaluative mediation. It works for most, and works very well for some."

Lisa Derr llderr@derrlaw.com 920-885-5549 and 262-334-1810 Self-evaluation:  "I have had a private family law mediation practice for 12 years with an office in Beaver Dam and an office in West Bend since 2006. I am listing the counties in which I have actually mediated divorce cases: Dodge, Washington, Fond du Lac, Jefferson, Green Lake, Sauk (1 or 2), Waukesha (2), Columbia and Dane. This month, I will try my two last cases as an attorney and thereafter 100% of my caseload will be as a mediator. Most of my referrals have not come from attorneys but rather through word of mouth, radio and phone book. I have also worked for 6 years as one of the Washington County independent contractors in public custody mediation cases and often receive cases that involve domestic violence issues. I have given statewide training with Perri Mayes on domestic violence issues to allow compliance for mediators with ACT 130. Our office also provides internet/phone conferencing where one client is out of state but both clients can view and discuss documents on my desktop at no extra charge. We have done a significant number of multi-million dollar divorces as well."

Our mediation office, Bonnie Sacia and Mary Geske, are skilled at doing this, and will offer parallel or concurrent mediation, as well as phone mediation, in cases where there is a history of either violence and/or significant power and control differentials.

We have worked with Garrick as well on collaborative cases and mediation or pro se cases. He is always a wealth of information for our clients and they are always extremely happy that they worked with him. His fees are fair and, if clients pay close attention when they work with him, they truly receive double or triple the value of the paid service as he also educates clients on their finances and suggests options for them going forward. His service to clients is always supreme. Clients should also know that he helps to educate judges and commissioners, who regard him highly."  "I would like to propose that you add the name of financial specialist Garrick Zielinski to your site as mediator.  He is a non-lawyer who I find invaluable on all of my cases.  Garrick is a regular financial specialist on my Collaborative cases, and more recently I have asked him to co-mediate my mediations with me as the financial neutral.  His knowledge and skills make all the difference in my cases.  I don’t know anyone who knows more about retirement accounts and their interplay with taxes and debts, and Garrick’s generosity with his time means the clients get all the attention they need as they go through a very stressful event.  He is especially good with unrepresented parties, who need a down to earth approach and someone to help them move forward in a financially difficult time.  His office, like yours, offers free forms and spreadsheets, an invaluable tool for people who are pro-active and want to feel “in control” during divorce time when they might otherwise feel a little out of control.  I wholeheartedly recommend Garrick as mediator and hope you will add him to your site."

The Hon. Patrick Snyder, Attorney evaluation:  Rated:  "Favorite"  - Snyder Mediation Services, 262-567-6712 cell at Judge Snyder is 262-490-4702. I have only used him for Milwaukee and Waukesha County cases. I have been told, but have never asked him, that he does not do child custody or placement cases. I have successfully used him for high conflict and high asset divorce mediation. $200 per hour divided by two, payment at mediation, so clients are to bring checkbooks with them. Far more evaluative than facilitative in approach."  "Wow  I had to post this  Just had my first mediation with Judge Pat Snyder (retired Waukesha County Judge) Complicated case- multiple properties, maintenance, etc He cut to the issue and settled the case in 1-1/2 hours  I would highly recommend him and will certainly use him again He mediates $ issues only, no custody/support issues, I second that.  I’ve always had a great experience with his mediation."

I have found when mediating placement issues more is accomplished when the parties are here alone and then confer with counsel at the conclusion. Depending on the desire of the parties I will either use a facilitative approach or an evaluative approach. I will at the request of counsel do early issue evaluation, where counsel present by offer their theory of the issue which is creating the impediment.

Wood County:   Back to the top.

Retired Judge Angela Bartell  -  "Having appeared in front of her a handful of times in Dane County in years past in a number of different family law cases, I always found her analysis to be intelligent and fair, regardless of whether the outcome was to my client’s favor or not.  She has a good way with speaking to litigants, too – such that they understand what she’s saying, in my observation." ~Attorney review.   

Judge Angela Bartell (now retired from Dane County ) is available for mediation and arbitration.  Her contact info is as follows:   Bartell Dispute Services, 3442 John Muir Dr . , Middleton , WI 53562-1183 , Phone: 608- 233-6262, email: abbartell@aol.com   /// Judge Bartell's self-evaluation:  "Experience. Neutrality. Diligence. Judge Angela Bartell Bartell Dispute Services, 3442 John Muir Dr. Middleton WI 53562-1183, Tel. 608-233-6262 abbartell@aol.com  Judge Bartell is a veteran, retired Dane County Circuit Judge with more than 30 years of experience trying civil (personal injury, medical negligence, real estate and business disputes), probate and family cases. She served as Chief Judge of the Fifth Judicial District (Dane, Rock & Lafayette Counties) for six years; taught evidence and civil trial procedure at the Wisconsin Judicial College for 10 years; and served as its Associate Dean for six years. With the consent of the parties, Judge Bartell has been an innovator in settling disputes, including mini-trials with expedited evidentiary rules and binding settlement conferences. Her knowledge of the settlement value of civil and family cases is based upon literally thousands of contested matters, both jury and judge trials. Judge Bartell serves as a reserve judge for the State of Wisconsin, and offers mediation, arbitration and valuation services. Her efficiency and experience result in final resolutions in a reasonable and fair manner." "I am hoping to utilize traditional mediation techniques in family law disputes, but also hope the parties will agree to arbitration, should they be unable to reach a full agreement.  That way, the money they spend will incorporate their own agreements, but will result in a final disposition of all issues."
