Who knows more about what you want than YOU?
Not the attorney you hire to represent you or the judge that hears your case.
If the first words out of your attorney’s mouth are “It is so expensive,” try Mediation.
Usually for less than a quarter of the cost of a lawsuit, the two of you can resolve your own case.
Mediation is a process of negotiation between you and the other side guided by a neutral independent third party-- someone who is not encouraging your side or the other side.
First the mediator will establish some ground rules, such as,
Step One: Each Side tells their story.
Step Two: Mediator keeps track of the issues that each side raises;
Mediator guides the parties as they clarify and expand on the issues identified;
Mediator helps the two parties to articulate points they agree on, large or small;
Mediator asks the two parties evaluate whether they see any room for compromise;
Mediator records the points of agreement and areas of compromise.
Step Three: Resolution. Mediator prepares a written agreement and both parties sign it. The written agreement is a contract between the parties that records their promises that can be enforced by a court of law.
