Quite often, cases where lawsuits are filed do not need to go to Court. In those situations, either lawyers or parties can select independent third-party attorneys, known as mediators. These individuals, upon agreement by all parties, may act as a Judge and jury in resolving a case. The benefit to the client is that there are fewer costs involved, and the matter gets resolved more expeditiously than having it litigated at trial. This office will provide either services as a mediator, services as an arbitrator or represent individuals who wish to have matters resolved through means other than a civil trial.
