After nearly three decades as a successful trial attorney, Floyd made the decision in 2008 to transition from litigator to mediator. His passion for mediation stems from his realization that he could have an even greater impact on people's lives by employing his negotiation skills as a neutral. Since he began offering his services twelve years ago, Floyd has proven to be extremely effective in gaining the trust, confidence, and respect of those who have used his services.
Whether he is tackling claims against governmental entities, emotionally challenging claims of sexual abuse or workplace harassment, claims of professional negligence or personal injury, or sophisticated real estate or business disputes, Floyd's ability to listen and his natural instinct for problem-solving enable him to guide the parties toward a mutually acceptable resolution. An attorney in one recent mediation commented "Floyd was incredibly efficient and effective in resolving a difficult case that needed some extra attention to reach resolution. He really does go above and beyond to facilitate a settlement and he knows the art of closing a deal." The plaintiffs in another mediation identified Floyd's most important attribute, "Your clients are, I think, lucky to have you on both sides."
In his spare time, Floyd, a one-time drummer enjoys watching his son (who is far more talented) perform with the band Perta. He also has an interest in baseball, golf, reading non-fiction and watching the entire DVD collection of "The West Wing" over and over and over again.
"Judicate West, and Floyd, always do an excellent job."
