Mediation services are offered to the parties with or without the parties’ attorney. Mediation offers an alternative to contentious, argumentative, and the costly process of litigation. The parties meet with an impartial mediator (Richard Kaufman), and present to the mediator, in a non‑adversarial environment, all relevant facts and documents with the intent and purpose to resolve in a constructive and satisfactory manner, the parties’ dispute. Through the mediation process, each party has an equal opportunity to present facts in support of their respective position in an attempt to achieve a partial or full and complete resolution of their dispute. Instead of dwelling on the negative, mediation allows you to focus on the things that really and truly matter which facilitate a beneficial conclusion to the proceedings. Mediation can avoid or minimize conflict and will significantly reduce litigation costs.
