Experienced Family Law Mediation Firm

In some cases, mediation is an excellent substitute for litigation. When a couple can communicate in an amicable way about ending a marriage, mediation offers a venue that is an alternative means of dispute resolution. Some clear advantages of mediation include:

  • Minimal appearances in a family court;
  • Efficient case handling and reduced legal fees; and
  • Faster resolution time than traditional litigation.

A mediation setting may also make it easier to focus on what is truly best for any children involved. During mediation, we will act as a neutral third party to foster communication between parties. We do not serve as advocates, but as advisory agents to help each party find solutions based on the circumstances they may face. When both parties are in general agreement, mediation works well. When both parties are not in agreement, litigation may be necessary.
