Our Firm prides itself on the ability to resolve all types of disputes without having to litigate in court. Therefore, our attorneys are trained in mediation techniques so that we can assist others in resolving their disputes as well. Our Firm can provide mediation services to help you resolve family disputes, neighborhood problems, workplace issues and business disagreements.
If you are looking for a way to resolve a dispute based on a “team” approach then collaborative process may be for you. In this process each party is represented by an attorney and may have a coach, such as a psychologist or therapist. These people make up the “team” and then enter into discussions on possible solutions to the problem. When this process is used in a divorce, it may also be necessary to enlist the help of other professionals such as a financial planner, real estate agent or a child psychologist. The goal of this process is to reach a resolution that serves everyone’s best interest, rather than each person just looking out for oneself.
Many disputes are resolved without going to court by direct negotiations between the people involved. Our Firm can represent you in direct negotiations with someone you have a dispute with and draft a settlement agreement that details the resolution. It is critical to review any settlement agreement with an attorney before you sign it.
