Simon M. Harrison has been a full time Mediator since 1992, mediating in excess of 3500 cases over a broad range of subject matter in both State and Federal court.

Simon is an AV rated attorney, practicing in Lee County and throughout Southwest Florida since 1978. Simon was a partner in the firm of Perch and Harrison, P. A. of Fort Myers and Lehigh Acres from 1979 to 1992 (and remained of counsel until 1996), engaging in a broad based transactional and litigation practice. He has extensive litigation experience in real property disputes, construction and mechanic's lien disputes, business disputes, contractual issues, mortgage foreclosures, and both secured and unsecured collections. He advised large and small land developers, real estate brokers, and contractors with dispute resolution, litigation, and regulatory compliance. He also represented Banks, Savings and Loans, and other lending clients on a wide variety of transactional and litigation matters, and supervised negotiation and documentation of both commercial and residential loan workout arrangements.

Although Simon's background as a practitioner was primarily in real estate, construction, and commercial matters, all of which remain areas of particular expertise, his years of mediation experience have provided him with significant knowledge and experience in numerous other areas of civil litigation such as condemnation, ADA compliance, and personal injury, which now compromise a significant portion of his work.

In addition to his work as a Mediator, Simon frequently serves as an Arbitrator in both binding and non binding Arbitrations, and as a Special Magistrate in FLUEDRA  and general Circuit Civil proceedings.
