Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) allows parties to resolve conflicts on their own terms with the help of a neutral professional. ADR in civil litigation is a highly successful process where parties focus fully on their case, for a dedicated amount of time, and try to find settlement terms that will end expensive litigation and eliminate the risk of proceeding forward. This process needs a skilled and experienced mediator to work with the parties and all of the competing interests that preclude a settlement.
ADR in family law allows parties going through the difficult process of divorce, separation and custody agreements an opportunity to divide their property and/or formulate their own custody and parenting plan with a mediator, rather than in the courtroom. Again, mediation offers parties an opportunity to resolve a matter with less conflict, less expense and less risk. Mediation also offers a more private method of dividing assets and liabilities in high-value asset cases.
Our firm has multiple experienced attorneys who can work as a third party neutral professional to provide guidance to parties who need to settle their cases but for whatever reason have not been able to resolve their case on its own.
