If you are seeking an alternative to litigation for resolution of your legal matter, let us be your Mediator. The Court can appoint your Mediator for you, or you can mutually agree to the Mediator of your choice.
Mediation is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which an impartial third party - the mediator - facilitates negotiations among the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable settlement. The major distinction between mediation and arbitration is that, unlike an arbitrator, a mediator does not make a decision about the outcome of the case. The parties, with the assistance of their attorneys, work toward a solution with which they are comfortable. The purpose of mediation is not to decide who is right or wrong. Rather, its goal is to give the parties the opportunity to (1) express feelings and diffuse anger, (2) clear up misunderstandings, (3) determine underlying interests or concerns, (4) find areas of agreement, and, ultimately, (5) incorporate these areas into solutions devised by the parties themselves.
The mediation process can be used in almost all areas of the law, including divorce or any other family law related conflict, contractor disputes, contract issues, landlord tenant matters, estate conflicts, business disputes.
A mediator is a trained professional who assists the parties to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to the conflict. Mediators are neutral facilitators, unbiased and committed to the parties' self-determination. Mediators do not rule or make decisions on your conflict; rather, the Mediator's role is to guide the parties toward an agreement.
