A. Lee Parks

Print | Back to Bio


Lee has been one of my go-to litigators on difficult business and emploment cases He understands the essence of cases quickly and, most importantly, learns the psychological component for each party which is critical to overcoming obstacles to settlement. I have worked with many of the best mediators in Georgia and elsewhere, and he has been one of the most tenacious and effective. In the last two months alone, he settled in one day a series of related complex trust and business cases pending for seven years where emotions were high and attorneys’ fees on each side were in the millions, and then later settled another arbitration between a high level executive and a private equity fund. His ability to understand the parties and keep the mediation on track is unparalleled in my experience. His passion for mediation is notable, which makes a huge difference for clients.

It was my pleasure dealing with an absolute pro. Thanks to you we got these cases resolved. I look forward to other opportunities to utilize your mediation services.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting you and the extraordinary job you did.  This was a very difficult mediation and I don’t think many folks could bring what you brought to the table to get past the obstacles to settlement – in both rooms.  You are at the top of my list!

Lee was excellent! The chasm between the positions of the parties for the majority of the day was so vast settlement seemed remote, but Lee made it happen.

Lee, since this mediation has concluded one way or another, I want to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks for the excellent job you did. Our side entered into the process most reluctantly but left the room with little hostility and with a very realistic evaluation of the economics of litigation. Equally significant, you drew out the Plaintiff in settlement discussions for the very first time.

Bruce E. Mitchell, Esq.

Lee is absolutely superb. He is among the best, if not the best, employment mediator in Georgia.


Lee Parks is the most effective mediator I have used in 30 years. He knows the law. He studies the parties' positions and understands their interests in pursuing or defending a claim. He recently had to mediate a case involving claims of national origin discrimination with 9 plaintiffs each thinking that his or her case was highly valuable and each was reluctant to settle. Lee diligently studied each claim and never mixed one up with another. He achieved a settlement of nearly all the claims and the few remaining ones were dismissed.

Without [Lee’s] skill and talent, and [his] ability to thread the needle, there is zero chance we would have gotten this one done. I cannot thank [him] enough.
