Other Legal Services We Provide
Often, it may be that the parties wish to avoid the financial and emotional expense of litigation. Other times, parties feel that it is important to them that they compromise their differences and while their agreement may well be imperfect, they believe that it is better to craft their own resolution rather than live with a court-imposed decision.
All of our attorneys regularly work on cases where a mediator is involved. We provide independent legal counseling to one party to an action, while they are working with a third-party mediator. While our partners practice mediation, we are also involved in the actual mediation if, it is deemed to be helpful.
As the role of a mediator is not to give legal advice, but rather, to aid the parties to reach an agreement. At times the agreement developed in mediation, that all involved worked so hard on, can be rejected by the Court upon filing as it did not meet certain legal standards. That is why it is very important that any person going through a mediation also has independent counsel to consult with, so that they are informed of their legal rights and our attorneys are able to point out legal flaws within any agreement reached, that may otherwise have gone unnoticed until being rejected by the Court.
Simply, the mediation forum can provide a more emotionally satisfying path to a fair and equitable agreement being developed.
Please note, our office is now offering remote mediation services utilizing the user-friendly, free, video-conferencing app, Zoom. If you are having difficulty logging into your remote mediation session, please contact our office and we would be happy to assist you!
