Prior to his certification as a mediator, Mr. Brams practiced for close to forty years as a civil litigator and trial attorney in state and federal court. His practice included personal injury and wrongful death cases, with considerable experience litigating motor vehicle accident and premises liability cases. Mr. Brams also handled government entity litigation, insurance coverage matters, life and health insurance disputes, and property damage claims.

His practice involved substantially the representation of defendants; however, Mr. Brams has also represented claimants and plaintiffs. He has participated in numerous jury trials and can discuss knowledgeably with all parties the risks of litigation and the advantages of voluntary dispute resolution.

Mr. Brams will utilize his extensive experience and knowledge to facilitate the resolution through mediation of cases of all levels of complexity.
