Meet Alan Jordan
The son of a local builder, Alan's passion for work began early in life. At 12 he was sweeping and cleaning the houses his father was constructing. By 15 he was working summers and holidays doing the framing, forming, plumbing and wiring work. Between high school and his freshman year at LSU, Alan designed and built a small home with his dad, managing the job from start to finish. Two weeks before his first class, he sold the house at a profit. Looking back, Alan recalls, "The seeds of business and its correlation to one's efforts were planted deep that summer."
In the mid-1990s, married with a family and in the midst of a very successful law career, Alan experienced a sea of change in his career philosophy that resulted in his undertaking a new career course. After several years of extensive study, new business ventures, and raising a family of five children, his decision ultimately led him to the mediation business.
Energized by his new career path, Alan found the personal fulfillment he sought through his work helping others discover common ground and resolve their conflict. "I could see and say firsthand that 'Yes, what we do matters more than what we make or what the world calls successful.'" Jordan adds, "One can be both successful on the world scale and highly fulfilled and satisfied."
The idea for Prism Group grew out of Alan's desire to help others discover and understand that people, purpose and perspective are the primary catalysts for both fulfilled living and exceptional performance in companies and organizations. Alan brings to his mediation work a keen understanding of people, an ability to ask the questions that matter, and a passion to help those in dispute see situations in a new light. "When people and purpose are aligned, magical things happen for everyone and everything involved," says Jordan. "Making that happen is my passion."
Prism Group specializes in the resolution of worker's comp, and accepts injury and commercial cases.
Meet Sean Rastanis
Sean began his legal career over 20 years ago as a law clerk at his father’s firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Eager to expand and diversify his breadth of experience, he then joined a firm in New Orleans, where he immersed himself in a wide range of work—from workers’ compensation and employment law, to personal injury representation and defense. Through the twists and turns of a diverse practice, his strength in resolving large and complex workers' compensation cases became impossible to ignore.
In the midst of personal milestones, including marrying his wife Kimberley and welcoming their daughter Rowan into the world, Sean’s success and agile thinking caught the attention of a large excess workers’ compensation carrier. It was during this time that he fully realized his passion for bringing people together on their path to resolution.
His specialization in workers' compensation led him to connect with Alan Jordan. Much like Alan and Prism Group, Sean aspired to help more companies and individuals resolve their disputes, and in doing so, truly change the way people think about resolution in workers’ compensation cases. After years of friendship—eager to merge their innovative outlooks and expertise—Sean joined the mediation team at Prism Group.
At Prism Group, Sean’s focus on listening and educating, coupled with his experience in handling cases from both sides, provides him a unique perspective and understanding of issues faced by the injured employee, employer and the insurance carrier. To every case, Sean brings an inherent desire to put people first in order to achieve the best results for everyone involved.
As part of the team, Sean plays an integral role in Prism Group, by enhancing and expanding the team’s level of service and by providing the comprehensive, results oriented approach to resolution of workers’ compensation claims that is central to its nature.”
