We believe passionately in alternative conflict resolution and strive to practice the principles of nonviolence in our personal and professional lives. This is not to say that we shirk away from conflict. Indeed, some conflict should be litigated. But all options will be examined before sending a person into litigation. No stone will be left unturned to help parties resolve conflict voluntarily, using the many resources available. Your goals are discussed in advance and a process will be individually tailored to meet your needs.
Estate & Probate
Mediation is a proven way to avoid the long-term adverse consequences of litigating family property, inheritance, and trust disputes.
Including divorce, custody or other support matters and ongoing battles post divorce involving custody, alimony or ongoing property disputes.
Working closely with plaintiff, defense and insurance counsel to resolve personal injury disputes is integral part of our services.
Mediation involves an independent third party - a mediator - who helps both sides come to an agreement. Mediation is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a whole range of situations such as family disputes, probate disputes, and personal injury matters.
Arbitration is like a trial but less formal. In arbitration, two sides present their evidence to an arbitrator. The arbitrator decides who wins and who loses. An arbitrator does the job that a judge or jury would normally do in court.
