MEDIATION IN LITIGATION
Why Choose Mediation?
Lawsuits require time-consuming and expensive written discovery, depositions, motions, filings, and more. A lawsuit can drag on for years. The financial and emotional cost of the litigation process can be overwhelming, and the energy and time involved can drain your reserves.
Mediation is efficient, fair, confidential, and solution-oriented.
When you choose to mediate your dispute, your mediator does not decide who is right or wrong, nor is there judgment passed. The people involved in the mediation make the decisions that they feel are best for themselves.
How Can I Go From Litigation to Mediation?
Discuss with your attorney the prospect of mediation. Let her or him know that you think that it may be appropriate for your case and that you would like the parties to consider it. Your attorney can discuss the possibility with you and opposing counsel.
It is best to choose mediation as early in the dispute as possible, preferably before too much time and money have been spent in the pre-trial process.
We provide mediation and dispute resolution in all of those areas in which we litigate, including corporate and business, insurance, construction, real estate, personal injury, and employment litigation.
"Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser — in fees, expenses and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough." ~ Abraham Lincoln
