Mediation can be a valuable alternative to litigation.
Mediation is a process where a trained third party neutral facilitates discussions with the objective of assisting parties with competing interests in litigation or potential litigation to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Mediation is an effective way to resolve disputes in a non-adversarial setting.
Mediation can be a valuable alternative to litigation for Elder and Disability Law Attorneys to offer clients involved in family disputes such as contested Guardianships, estate matters and second marriage situations where one spouse may need institutional care or other assistance with activities of daily living. Mediation can be particularly effective in disputes where one party either receives or anticipates receiving government benefits such as Medicaid, or in divorce situations where a party or a child of the marriage is disabled and government benefits may be anticipated.
There are many advantages to mediation. Disputes are resolved in a timely manner and in a far more cost effectively than litigation. More importantly, mediation often maintains family relationships that can be irreparably harmed during litigation.
