Dedicated mediators explain the mediation process
Under Washington law, mediation can be used as a form of alternative dispute resolution for certain cases. Mediation allows you and your attorney to work with the opposing party to try to find a solution to your legal issue on your terms and in a more private setting than court provides. In mediation sessions, we act as an impartial third party, focused on helping both sides reach an agreement. We mediate many types of disputes, including:
- Family Law
- Property Disputes
- Real Estate
- Parenting Plans
- Elder Law Issues
Our goal is to help both sides reach a compromise on the issues they face. We guide parties in communicating effectively so they can reach an agreement that satisfies each side. We also encourage parties to create their own solutions that will resolve their disputes and are enforced in court if necessary.
The benefits of mediation over litigation
Mediation is typically faster, less expensive and less formal than litigation. It allows the parties to retain more control over the process while protecting their privacy. It is also nonbinding, meaning that you will not be forced to sign or agree to any resolution you are not happy with.
Mediation helps preserve relationships
In many cases, both parties are best served when they establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, you can set aside hostility and agree on key points. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for you to preserve the stability and well-being of family, employment, community or business relationships while resolving your legal matter. Most importantly, the nature of the mediation process reduces the stress of legal conflicts and puts important decisions in your hands rather than in the court’s.
