Mediation is designed to help opposing parties reach a quiet, efficient, and amicable resolution to their case rather than deal with the unfortunate consequences of courtroom litigation. The most common cases we see involve divorcing spouses, but mediation can also be beneficial in probate cases and various civil litigation matters. Many Courts increasingly require mediation before trial, and statistics show it is highly effective in settling disputes.
After all, there is no way to predict how a judge or jury will resolve your matter, so choosing mediation is more likely to result in an agreement you and the other parties can live with.
That said, we understand that choosing the right option to resolve your unique dispute can be easier said than done. This is why we always go beyond the legal aspects of what we do to include practical, compassionate, and positive advice when you and your family need it most. It is important to us that you never feel alone, and this latest post is no different. After scouring the Internet, we would like to share a few thought-provoking quotes about mediation to help you make the right decision.
