Mediation

“Mediation prior to litigation provides both parties with an essential tool. It is nothing less than an opportunity to avoid a war.”

                                                                                                                                                                                        --Joe House, Founding Partner

AN INFORMAL PROCESS

If you are having a serious business dispute with a business associate, you should seriously consider an early mediation.

It is often extremely valuable to try this process before the wheels come off, and personalities flare and everyone gets their heels dug in.

This is a very cost effective way to get to a resolution. The process is entirely voluntary, and not coercive. You remain in control of your fate.

Mediation has a very high success rate, which is why courts almost always require a mediation near the end of litigation and prior to trial, when you have already spent tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on the litigation, and still don’t have a result, even after years.

The parties can choose to leave their lawyers at home, and just come to an experienced but impartial third party to briefly present their points of view or air their differences and then allow us, as mediator, to get to the bottom of the dispute, usually in separate rooms so that everyone can be completely candid, and see if there is a way to resolve the issue early, voluntarily and inexpensively.

The advantage of a mediator experienced in litigation, is that he can frankly tell everyone what they are facing. This is good information to have early on, and can save a lot of time, trouble and money.

 

As mediators, we will not choose sides. We will not be representing either side. We will be advocates for an immediate and voluntary resolution. Hopefully, we can allow you to benefit from a great deal more information than you had before you started.

The process is entirely confidential. Whatever you say to one another, or to us, or what we say will remain confidential. It can never be used in court, should the mediation process to fail.

You have nothing to lose, other than our fee and a day of your time. The gain can be immeasurable in time, trouble, peace of mind and money.

We will ask you to fill out a short form describing your issue and providing any documents which may be relevant. That will                                                  allow us to focus on the issues and quickly get to the heart of the matter.
