Most people would prefer to avoid airing their troubles in court or simply do not want to deal with high costs associated with a drawn-out case. If this sounds like you, mediation might be a good option for settling your present legal matter.
Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process in which the mediator works with the parties to come to a mutually-agreeable resolution. The mediator is not the decision-maker and does not represent either party. Instead, the mediator is neutral and just aids the parties to an agreement.
Engaging in mediation allows you and the other involved parties to negotiate privately and swiftly. The team of attorneys at Cook & Associates has decades of experience in the law and is highly regarded for our track record of success in mediation proceedings.
Family mediation is an alternative dispute resolution that allows families transitioning into separate homes to do so in a way that is respectful and which can better address the specific needs of the individual parties.
Many different types of legal cases can be resolved in mediation. They include, but are not limited to:
Family Law - Divorce, child custody and support, spousal support/alimony, visitation rights, etc.
Business law - Contract disputes, partner agreements, exit strategies, etc.
Real estate law - Property and boundary disputes, landlord-tenant issues, etc.
Estate planning - Contested wills, beneficiary disputes, etc.
Civil Law - Personal injury, liability, etc.
