Ido possesses significant experience mediating first-party property claims, personal injuries claims, as well as complex business disputes. He is a Supreme Court of Florida Circuit Civil Mediator that is recognized by his peers. His straightforward approach cuts through the noise to focus the parties on resolving their disputes efficiently and beneficially. He is adept at understanding and utilizing new technologies, and has presided over hundreds of virtual mediations throughout the State of Florida.


Listening skills are key to a successful mediation. I have observed first-hand how those skills are a crucial element to forging a settlement in which both parties get what they need.

He persisted in a lengthy mediation that I had predicted would be at an impasse within a couple of hours. – Anonymous Counsel
I have been in business for 40 years. I attended too many mediations. More than I can count. Ido was the finest mediator that I ever met. Ido understood the parties and facts. He is personable and a pleasure to do business with. Without his guidance the case would never have settled. If you need a mediator, use Ido. He is the best!!! – R. W.
The following is a review of real estate mediation by Ido Alexander. Through my experience in being a physician, and in business and investing, I have experienced many different personalities. Given such, it became immediately apparent to me that Ido Alexander has a unique ability to steer strong emotions as well as disjointed viewpoints into a constructive outcome. His years of experience not only give him immense wisdom based on historical data, but also attentiveness to the critical details of a negotiation. I initially did not feel as though I understood the benefits of mediation, until I had the opportunity to work with a professional like Ido Alexander who is able to provide an incredibly valuable service. I truly appreciated his patient guidance, his perspective, and his ability to unite as opposed to divide. If matters arose again, I would be very happy to work with Ido Alexander. However, hopeful to avoid those circumstances, I give Ido Alexander my highest recommendation as both a mediator and a person of character. – Dr. Y
