(CAMDEN) – The Rutgers School of Law -- Camden / Rutgers Camden Mediation Center today announced that Bradley Campbell, Stanley Stahl, and Caroline Petrilla have joined the Center's roster of mediation practitioners. A resource of the Rutgers School of Law–Camden, Rutgers Camden Mediation Center provides dispute resolution services and training to the public and to businesses across the Delaware Valley.

Campbell, who will add to the Center's offerings for environment and energy matters, served as Commissioner of New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection (2002-2006), as Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (1999-2001), as an associate director of the White House Counsel on Environmental Quality (1995-1999), and as a trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice (1990-1995) prior to starting his own firm in 2007.

"Environmental disputes are notorious for being complex and intractable, so we are delighted that a nationally-known expert of Brad's stature is now part of our program," said Carl Viniar, Co-Director of the Center.

In addition to his affiliation with the Center, Campbell is a member of the Association for Conflict Resolution.

The Center's work offerings for personal injury, products liability, and medical malpractice cases have been bolstered with the addition of Stanley Stahl, a Rutgers Camden Law School professor who is teaching medical malpractice litigation, pre-trial advocacy, and trial advocacy. Stahl's teaching career follows a successful career of 35 years as a medical malpractice litigator in New Jersey and Pennsylvania who tried hundreds of cases to verdict and negotiated and settled many more. He is a certified Civil Trial Attorney and has been recognized by Trial Attorneys of New Jersey with the 2004 Trial Bar Award.

"The experience and expertise that Stan brings to medical malpractice cases make him an ideal mediator or arbitrator for parties looking to avoid the risks and expense of litigation for health care matters," said Nancy Hawn, Co-Director of the Center with Viniar.

Rutgers-Camden Mediation Center's roster also now also includes Caroline Petrilla, who brings 20 years of experience from the New Jersey Office of Dispute Settlement where she most recently served as the office's Assistant Director. Petrilla has mediated well over a thousand civil court cases, hundreds of foreclosure matters, and numerous pre-litigation disputes. She has vast experience in providing a full range of Alternate Dispute Resolution services from conflict management.

"Caroline has for years been a leading practitioner of dispute resolution with the State of New Jersey – she is one of New Jersey's most prominent employment mediators," said Viniar. "Her wide-range of experience spans the civil litigation spectrum from personal injury to commercial and contract to construction and insurance matters which make Caroline uniquely suited to handle the wide range of cases that come through our Center."

Ms. Petrilla has served as a court appointed mediator in several complex multi-party public policy cases including intergovernmental infrastructure disputes involving dams, bridges, and roadways – successfully addressing public safety concerns and saving stakeholders millions of dollars. Her mediation assistance in resolving a major contract dispute between New Jersey's largest health insurance provider and a network of inner city hospitals prevented a potential crisis for thousands of residents needing medical care.

The Center was founded in 2010, and currently hosts a catalogue of more than a dozen professionals offering arbitration or mediation services. The Rutgers Camden Mediation Center also offers training in family and civil case mediation, and continuing education courses on mediation, conflict management and prevention, negotiation skills, and related subjects.
