Understanding the mediation process
Mediation can be used as a form of alternative dispute resolution for many cases and in fact many Judges today are ordering all cases to mediation as a form of Dispute Resolution. Mediation allows you and your attorney to work with the opposing party to try to find a solution to your legal issue and to come to a compromise to resolve your case. At the center of the process is a mediator. Mediators are an impartial third party focused on helping both sides reach an agreement. We represent parties in mediation arising from many types of disputes, including:
- Estate law and Wills
- Property law
- Real estate
- Natural resources
- Family law
- Domestic Relations
- Juvenile Law
In many cases, both parties are best served when they establish a cordial relationship; especially in family law cases or domestic relations. Through the structured process of mediation, you can set aside hostility and agree on key points. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for you to preserve the stability and well-being of employment, community or business relationships during the turbulent process of litigation or prior to filing a lawsuit. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of legal conflicts and puts important decisions in your hands, rather than in the court’s power.
