Members are selected to apply by invitation and must demonstrate not only years of working in the mediation and alternative dispute resolution field, but also the highest levels of achievement.
Ms. Van Horne’s mediation career includes successfully mediating a wide variety of disputes, including disability discrimination claims, personal injury claims, gender discrimination claims, wrongful death claims, invasion of privacy claims, defamation claims, medical malpractice claims, estate claims, landlord/tenant disputes, and contract disputes, among others. She is on the panel of approved mediators for the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska. In 2017 she was the first female in Nebraska to be accepted into the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.
Additionally, Ms. Van Horne dedicates time to pro bono activities including serving on the Board of Directors of Legal Aid of Nebraska, president-elect of the Robert M. Spire American Inn of Court Executive Committee, and chair of the Nebraska State Bar Association ADR Section.
“I’m honored to be part of this exceptional organization. It will provide an additional avenue to reach attorneys searching for reliable and experienced mediators,” Ms. Van Horne said. “The College’s strict membership requirements give another layer of confidence to the search process for a qualified mediator.”
