If you are working with a mediator to resolve your case, we can provide the support and knowledge to help you make the right decisions. We can review any documents and explain your rights and obligations before you sign. Mediation can be a less expensive alternative when it works, but when you have spent over 9 months in mediation and still have no resolution, it may be time to consider a different approach. We can provide the benefit of our knowledge and experience to determine whether you would be better off continuing in mediation, or if it is time to go to court.
