ADR, Collaborative Law, Mediation Lawyers

Resolving Disputes without the Uncertainty of Litigation

Taking someone to court means a loss of time and money, as well as an increase in stress. The outcome is in the hands of a judge rather than in the hands of the two parties most affected. For these and other reasons, divorcing spouses and their attorneys often seek alternative ways to resolve differences.

At our firm, we work with our clients to obtain the best results possible without the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation. Litigation also opens more details surrounding family disputes to the public, something most of our clients prefer to avoid. Michael is trained in various forms of mediation.

  • ADR or alternative dispute resolution: This is an umbrella term for many different approaches to resolving problems. Courts encourage ADR because it enables the parties to negotiate back and forth to reach an agreement both can accept.
  • Mediation: Both parties and their lawyers work together to explore areas of concern and suggest ideas for solving disputes. If an agreement cannot be reached, the parties can then go to court. Michael is trained in mediation.
  • Collaborative Law: In Collaborative Law, both parties are represented by a Collaborative attorney and both parties agree not to litigate. If the parties cannot reach agreement, they must then retain different attorneys in order to go to court.

When both spouses are actively involved in some form of ADR, the results are usually more acceptable to both and serve them well over the long term.

Ask your lawyer if mediation is recommended in your case. Call 952.896.1099.
