Brandon S. Diamond, Ph.D. resolves conflicts remotely, specializing in employment, education, personal injury, first-party property, and congregational disputes.
Brandon earned his Ph.D. in Science Education and his M.S. in Biology from the University of Miami. After majoring in Biology and Judaic Studies at the University of Miami, he spent over two years in medical school before deciding to become a high school biology teacher. During his first six years as a high school teacher, he taught every level of high school biology, up through AP Biology, along with Genetics and Anatomy and Physiology. He also earned an M.S.Ed from Nova Southeastern University at that time.
While he taught in Orlando, Brandon also served part-time as a religious school teacher, a religious school principal, and a ride operator at Walt Disney World.
After earning his Ph.D. in Science Education, Brandon became a Visiting Assistant Professor in the University of Miami Department of Biology. His paper on improving teachers’ science content knowledge and its effect on student outcomes has been cited about 130 times. While teaching at David Posnack Jewish Day School, he added many varied leadership and organizational roles to his list of responsibilities, including district Director of Academics. During this time, Brandon served as the Vice President of Education at B’nai Aviv of Southwest Broward. Brandon finally served as the Interim Principal for Fischer High School at Posnack Jewish Day School before deciding to turn to mediation full-time.
Brandon now uses his long-developed skills in working with people and helping them find resolutions to their problems at Diamond Mediations. As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, Brandon can help resolve conflicts of all types. Brandon primarily conducts his mediations on Zoom, so he can help people wherever they are.
Brandon spends most of his free time with his wife, 14-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter. They enjoy traveling, reading, board games, and video games.
Our goal in all mediations is to create a relaxed atmosphere, where everyone involved is comfortable and understands the process. This decreases the adversarial nature of the dispute and increases the chances of an agreement being reached. The goal of mediation is for everyone to part amicably, regardless of the outcome.
Our approach varies depending on the situation, but you can usually expect to start together in a Zoom meeting, and then breaking out into caucus (small groups) to discuss. Everyone can be brought together at any time upon request, and everyone will be brought together at the end.
