Our offices offer mediation by a neutral trained legal professional certified in mediation, with the additional benefit of the assistance of a professional with a legal understanding of your problems and skilled in document drafting. The mediator assists the parties in negotiating a settlement and ratifying a legally binding agreement.
The parties participating in the mediation are entitled to meet with their independent counsel throughout the mediation process, as the mediator provides legal information and not independent legal advice.
Once an agreement has been reached, the mediator will draft all the required legal documents and provide such to the parties to be reviewed by their independent counsel for ratification and independent legal advice.
