TONI NICOLE BENEDETTI
Ms. Benedetti specializes in civil mediation, including divorce, child custody, marital separation, prenuptial
agreements, employment disputes, community conflicts, real estate matters, and business conflicts. Ms. Benedetti also is a certified arbitrator with the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, where she regularly is called to hear cases and render decisions involving complex civil, commercial and personal injury matters.
As a mediator, Ms. Benedetti uses her legal, analytical, and conciliation skills to quickly identify key issues and craft the best workable resolution of each case. Recognized for her skilled approach at facilitating client communication and recalibrating relationship dynamics, Ms. Benedetti is trusted to assist clients with their most difficult personal matters, especially when prior efforts at resolution have proven unsuccessful.
Ms. Benedetti is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, District of New Jersey and United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Ms. Benedetti previously practiced law at Stradley Ronon, where she focused on state and federal civil litigation, at Srinivasan Law, where she focused on family law, and at the Law Offices of A. Charles Peruto, Jr., where she handled the firm’s civil and family law matters. Prior to private practice, Ms. Benedetti completed a prestigious appellate clerkship with the Honorable Erminie L. Conley, Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey - Appellate Division.
Ms. Benedetti earned her undergraduate degree from Villanova University, magna cum laude, and her law degree from the Rutgers School of Law-Camden.
While in law school, Ms. Benedetti interned for two federal judges, the Honorable John J. Hughes, U.S.M.J., and the Honorable Joseph H. Rodriguez, U.S.D.J, of the District of New Jersey, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit’s Appellate Mediation Program. These three internships provided Ms. Benedetti with direct involvement in judicial and quasi-judicial mediations and settlement conferences, and in the interplay between counsel, clients, and the Court as a neutral. These experiences ultimately sparked Ms. Benedetti’s interest in alternative dispute resolution.
