Creative Dispute Resolution…Tough Litigation
Mediation is a joint problem-solving process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, helps people address areas of dispute, review alternatives and develop mutually acceptable solutions.
The mediator provides an overview of what will happen in mediation and the steps to finalize your agreement in the court. Mediation provides a safe and impartial environment in which it is easier for the parties to communicate. The parties are assisted in understanding the facts and issues within the framework of the law. Creative and cost effective solutions are suggested. Mediation is voluntary and non-binding. A settlement document containing the agreements between the parties is drafted by the mediator and utilized by the parties’ attorneys to finalize the matter in court.

Our experience indicates that clients have alternatives to litigation that can reduce the stress and anxiety that always accompanies a divorce. Reducing the conflict often increases the likelihood of win-win results for all parties – especially the children. We also know that divorcing couples can spend tremendous amount of money on litigating issues such as distribution of property, child custody, and supporting issues. We would rather they saved their money! Through mediation, we believe clients will recognize that cooperation, collaboration and compromise often allow them to end up getting them where they want to go faster and cheaper.
