Jana Russell Garner is an experienced mediator who has handled a wide range of cases. She works with the parties to obtain their best settlement, letting the parties negotiate their agreement but providing insightful ideas, informed observations, and real-world practicalities based on her litigation experience throughout Tuscaloosa and the Black Belt.
She is a good listener. Since mediation is the one time in litigation when someone gets to tell their side of the story, that is important. She listens and understands.
Because she has represented both plaintiffs and defendants, individuals, and large corporations, she can easily relate to and understand the interests of both.
Jana is patient but persistent. She keeps the parties engaged in the process so that they have every opportunity to explore a settlement that they can live with, avoiding the risks and uncertainties of trial. She’s tried those cases and can explain those risks.
Jana is available to mediate cases such as:
Estate and trust litigation
Fraud and breach of warranty
Property disputes, including timber issues
Divorce and family law
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Class Actions & Mass Torts
