Mediation: a sometimes optimal process for resolving legal disputes

Quicker. Cheaper. Less stressful. Greater autonomy for involved parties. A focus on civility rather than adversarialism.

With benefits like that to recommend it, why would parties in legal disagreement ever fail to give mediation a timely and measured look as a potential mechanism for resolving conflict?

In fact (and for those very reasons and more), mediation is being increasingly resorted to in California and across the country as a comparatively superior tool to employ when parties are at loggerheads.

And on matters relevant to a broad range of subject matter. We note the broad applicability of mediation on our website at the Bay Area [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-2″]. We note therein that the process is relevant in myriad contexts, including these:

  • Business disagreements centered on contracts, employee claims and more
  • Estate planning concerns, addressing matters ranging from probate and will validity/contests to owed fiduciary duties and additional matters
  • Real estate issues (e.g., repair/inspection, contractual disputes, earnest money and construction defects)

The often-realized bottom line for parties opting for mediation to address disputes centrally spotlights its proven utility. We underscore on our website that when an experienced attorney acts as either a neutral mediator or consulting lawyer in the process, mediation can “effectively resolve disagreements without resorting to costly, time-consuming litigation.”

The key word in that above sentence is “experienced.” An individual seeking a mediator’s involvement in a legal matter might reasonably want to consult with an attorney having a demonstrated mediation background and linked success.

We welcome contacts to our firm from persons seeking information concerning mediation and other litigation alternatives for resolving legal conflict.
