Valentine’s Day celebrates love, but flowers die and love sometimes goes wrong. Mediation can be a cost-effective alternative to the courtroom when things go wrong. A good mediator must be impartial, knowledgeable of the law and have the tools to assist the parties in promptly resolving their legal disputes.
In many cases the courtroom is not the best place to resolve your dispute. Contested legal issues are rarely clear-cut. A good lawyer will help you determine what’s at stake (not just assets and debts!) and may suggest mediation as a less expensive, less stressful alternative to the courtroom.
