Who We Are

My name is Jerry O'Connell, I am the founder of Jeremiah Associates LLC, a firm providing Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to parties facing disputes. My work, in assisting parties in resolving disputes, provides the opportunity to leverage my 35+ years of experience in the financial services industry managing a consulting and training practice that supported clients throughout the global financial marketplace.

I began my ADR career as a FINRA Arbitrator in 2008. FINRA is a regulator overseeing the financial services industry, under the supervision of the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC). I expanded my ADR qualifications via mediation training in 2012 as a community mediator. Since then I have continued to expand my skills and experience through additional training and apprenticeships. Currently I mediate civil court, community, family, housing, small claims court, employment, special education as well as Attorney-Client fee disputes. Mediation is the largest segment of my practice due to the breadth of my case experience. I currently use Zoom, as a virtual platform to conduct mediations and is preferred by most participants.  I have mediated more than 225 cases as of 2023.

Typical disputes we assist clients to resolve include:

Business, Consumer, Contractor, Employment, Family, Financial, Homeowner's Association, Labor Unions, Landlord Tenant, Legal, Neighbors, School  

There's are many issues to consider when choosing a Dispute Resolution professional. Styles, experience and approaches are important. My motivation is to help people manage & resolve conflicts in a productive manner while exploring workable solutions. My rate is $275.00 per hour, which can be shared by the parties in dispute or underwritten  by one party. I require a retainer on engagement and will bill as services are provided. Payment can be made via check or PayPal. 

​My Commitment to Clients
My goals are centered around meeting the needs of each client. I accomplish this by assisting each party to identify and explore acceptable solutions for their disputes. I ensure that clients feel secure and confident that we understand their concerns and will address their issues. As the neutral dispute resolution professional, my role is to provide an unbiased perspective and help all parties to reach acceptable resolutions.

Every client deserves to be treated with respect and receive outstanding service
