Mediation

Mediation with a trained legal professional will provide you with the best information and expertise to navigate even the most complex scenarios.

It is often encouraged and recommended that you work through your legal matters outside of a courtroom. Doing so tends to limit stress, keeps legal costs manageable, creates a roadmap for success, and ensures that you are not leaving your important legal matters to be determined by a Judge.

 What is mediation?

Mediation is a process where you agree to meet with the other party (or parties) in the presence of a neutral, non-biased third party (the Mediator) with a view to resolving all, or some, of your legal matters.

Mediation can occur over the course of numerous sessions and can address as many issues as requested. When the mediation ends, you will receive a written report from the mediator outlining what matters were agreed upon. This report will be used to create a Contract or Court Order that formalizes your mediated agreement.

Our Trained Mediators

We have two lawyers trained in mediation, both having completed the following specific training:

    • Interest-Based Negotiation
    • Basic Collaborative Law
    • 40-hour Mediation Skills Level 1
