Why Use Mediation For Estate Disputes

How Mediation Can Help Resolve Estate Disputes

Settling a loved one’s estate is already difficult enough, you should not have to face a legal dispute on top of it. However, it is not uncommon for the distribution of an estate to elicit strong emotions. Long-held grudges may come to light over a will, heirlooms, properties and more. These feuds can lead to exhausting and costly legal battles. Proposing mediation may be able to help you circumvent this.

As experienced mediators, we have helped many clients resolve estate disputes and more. Let the attorneys at the Law Offices of Denise Eaton May help you navigate your unique case today.

Why Choose Mediation Over Litigation

Disagreements can arise over the will, a trust or the estate’s administration. Sometimes a family member may feel that assets were unfairly divided. In other cases, they may disagree with a provision in the will. These are all valid concerns that a mediator can help you and your loved ones address.

When you opt for mediation over litigation, you can:

  • Avoid court and attorney fees — Mediation is much less expensive than litigation.
  • Control the outcome of your case — With mediation you can negotiate your settlement.
  • Resolve conflicts in a timely manner — Court cases can become a drawn-out affair.
  • Discuss the real issues at hand — A skilled mediator can help you get to the root of your problems.
