Neutral Bio: Hon. Anthony D. Perri

The single most important trait that a mediator must possess is an understanding of what each side needs. – Hon. Anthony D. Perri

Hon. Anthony D. Perri

Hon. Anthony D. Perri started his impressive legal career doing three decades of  personal injury trial work, in house for Hartford, Crum & Forster and then USAA (as Executive Director Managing Attorney).  He then parlayed that into a diverse body of work as a Neutral-Village Justice, Judicial Hearing Officer, Stock Exchange Arbitrator and Mediator/Arbitrator for SSAM. He firmly believes the key to his success as a neutral is based upon his respect for the parties and positions, his acute listening skills and his ability to fully focus on the respective positions.
