Many people have heard of mediation, but do not really know what it means. Mediation is a way of resolving disputes in a low-stress, cooperative manner. The parties in mediation make all the decisions. They keep full control of the legal matter and how it gets resolved. As a mediator, I know how to guide parties through the issues and help them reach their own resolution. Using mediation allows the parties to a dispute to resolve issues in a dignified way, maintaining a positive working relationship throughout.
One of the best things about mediation is that the parties have control over the process and the outcome of situations. The parties can fashion agreements that meet their needs, even if the agreements might be different from what a judge might do.
At the Nevitt Law Office, when I serve as a mediator, I do not represent either party. I act as a neutral mediator to guide you through the entire legal process. I help you identify the issues that need to be addressed and assist you in resolving each issue in a way that meets the needs of both parties.
Mediation is a very positive environment in which to resolve disputes. Many times, the process is much shorter than a traditional litigation process. Although I usually work with divorcing couples when I serve as mediator, the process also works very well for unmarried parents in a paternity case, or anyone with a dispute of any kind.
I have had over 160 hours of training as a mediator. I have been practicing law since 1992 and have focused that practice on family issues since 1995. Let me help you resolve the issues in your divorce, paternity or other case in a way that allows you to address difficult legal issues in a dignified, cooperative manner.
