Negotiation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Going to court is not the only option to resolve legal disputes. With good case preparation, many cases can be resolved by negotiation or mediation. This is an option not only before litigation begins, but it is also something to consider at points in time during litigation. We provide good case preparation as well as the legal experience to give you an opportunity to satisfactorily resolve your case without going to court or without going to trial.
Issues between family members do not always have to end in litigation. Family conflicts can be resolved in mediation. Mediation provides a safe environment for parties to discuss their concerns with the assistance of a neutral mediator. Mediation can result in a court order or agreement that addresses the concerns of all of the parties at a cost lower than litigation. Mediation can be used to decide divorces, child custody issues, family disputes over care of an elderly or disabled family member.
