Are You Seeking Mediation?
In addition to being a highly skilled litigator, Mr. Garner offers alternative dispute resolution through mediation. Sometimes during the course of a legal dispute, parties may look toward mediation to resolve conflicts outside of the courtroom with the help of a neutral third party called a “mediator.” The mediator facilitates a discussion between parties. If both parties can agree to mediation and create agreeable terms in writing, they will not have to go before a judge to create one. The judge will sign the agreement they develop on their own. It is important to note that mediators do not provide disputing parties legal advice. Mediators will answer questions about possible outcomes and move the discussion along, but it is up to the parties involved to create the terms of their settlement agreement.
There are situations where mediation can be beneficial for steering clear of a lengthy courtroom battle. The terms of your mediation are flexible, and in general, the outcome is confidential and legally enforceable but it can be a difficult process. Talk to Mr. Garner to find out if mediation may be right for you.
