About Michael Menard, Attorney

I Can Help Mediate or Arbitrate Your Case!

IMG_0851-webSince 2001, I have been honored to have been chosen to serve as a mediator or neutral arbitrator in over 2,000 claims which were pending in our court system. The vast majority of the non-binding mediations were successfully resolved.

In addition to having over 30 years of experience in the litigation and trial of personal injury claims, I have lectured on behalf of the Erie County Bar Association and the Erie Institute of Law and have given in-house presentations on the topic of ADR. I have served as the President of the Western New York Trial Lawyers’ Association. I have been trained and certified as a Federal Court mediator.

My fees are extremely reasonable, certainly a more cost-effective alternative to a trial. I will be as flexible as possible in terms of scheduling, resulting in a quicker resolution of your claim.
