P13_copy_3Mr. Wikstrom was first introduced to Alternative Dispute Resolution while attending law school whereby he became a Certified Florida Supreme Court County Mediator in 1999. During the years, Arve Wikstrom gained a great deal of experience working for various litigation firms. The litigation firms varied from in-house counsel law offices for insurance companies to personal injury law firms and a products liability law firm where advocacy for the client was second to none.

Upon returning from Afghanistan after a one year combat tour as a Captain in the US Army, advising and conducting combat missions with the Afghan National Army, Mr. Wikstrom realized conflict resolution ought to be the wave of the future in all areas.

He has mediated thousands of cases and served as an arbitrator in hundreds of cases.  Mr. Wikstrom has mediated and arbitrated various conflicts ranging from family issues, employment disputes, automobile collisions, contract disputes and appellate disputes. 

Arve Wikstrom is certified as a county, circuit, family, dependency and appellate mediator by the Florida Supreme Court, a FINRA arbitrator, ombudsman for the ESGR (Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve), listed as a neutral with the Department of Defense and a volunteer arbitrator for the Better Business Bureau.  He belongs to less than twenty (25) mediators certified in all areas of mediation in the State of Florida and belongs to a very select few who have mediated in all certification areas.  Mr. Wikstrom teaches the Florida Supreme Court certified county and family mediation class. He has a BA, MBA and JD.
