Approach

Believes mediation is the sane alternative to litigation. Facilitates the parties reaching agreement by assisting them to address each other's concerns within the framework of the law. Creative as well as traditional solutions are reviewed. Court ready documents are prepared to expedite and economize the process. Either party can terminate the mediation process with no further obligation. It is recommended that each party get at least one attorney consultation at the end, though it is even better to have an attorney retained and available for consultation during the process. Most civil mediations include the attorneys. Also do collaborative law, which uses attorneys trained in the collaborative process and resolves disputes without litigation. Collaborative law is idea where there is an imbalance of power.
