Need Help With Mediation?

Decisions made during the litigation process have a profound impact long after the decree is final. This is especially true regardless of which aspect of the law is being engaged. Anything that can be done to avoid bitter litigation and disputes will make the process easier for everyone. Mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution are designed to save time, reduce costs, and alleviate stress while preserving legal rights.

Due to the budget crisis in the country, it is taking longer necessary to appear before a judge to finalize a case settlement. For this reason, more and more people are choosing to finalize their legal disputes through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as collaborative law and arbitration.

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has many advantages over litigation:

  • Fewer hostilities and grudges that spill over into future disputes
  • Greater privacy because most details are not part of the public court record
  • More control over solutions, rather than leaving decisions up to a judge
  • Considerably lower cost
  • Less adverse impact on children in family law cases
  • Faster resolutions than going to court

Mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution can potentially save you and your family thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees and court costs. To better understand whether mediation or another ADR technique is appropriate in your case, you should consult the professional advice of our firm.
