Mediation

When emotions are getting in the way and litigation is not preferred, Mediation can be a particularly effective way to resolve a dispute, particularly between family members.  

Mediation is the process by which a neutral third party intervenes between two conflicting parties to promote reconciliation, settlement, or compromise. It provides the disputing parties with an opportunity to identify and cope with interpersonal issues that may not have originally been thought to be part of the dispute. 

It is extremely useful in dealing with cases of a sensitive and personal nature in which trust and cooperation are essential throughout the process. An effective mediator can hear both parties and help them communicate with each other in a constructive manner.

Mediation is often a shorter and less costly process than a trial, typically taking anywhere from half a day to several weeks. It is always confidential and nothing said in mediation can be used in court if the process fails.

Typical mediation cases often involve:

  • Divorce settlements
  • Child custody agreements
  • Child support agreements
  • Spousal Support/Alimony agreements
  • Contractual disputes
  • Estates, trusts and wills
  • Landlord and tenant conflicts
  • Employment disputes
  • Business partner disagreements
  • Probate and resolution after the death of a family member or friend
  • Personal injury settlements
