Litigating a personal injury lawsuit, a divorce or a child custody dispute can easily lead disputants away from the core issues and bog them down in legal proceedings. Court calendars, motions and countermotions and impersonal judges can take on a life of their own. Many people facing legal disputes say, “There must be a better way.” For many, mediation is the better way.
In mediation, legal opponents (usually with their lawyers by their sides) meet with neutral mediators who consider evidence that a jury might examine, but without the pressure of a public trial. At Andrews Terry Jeffers LLP, we recommend mediation over litigation for people who want to have a greater say in how their cases are resolved.
Our clients often opt for mediation to settle TEDRA actions, contract disputes, real estate matters, business disputes, employment discrimination claims or asset distribution in connection with a divorce or termination of a domestic partnership. Many experience benefits such as the following:
Our attorneys often represent clients who have decided to use mediation as a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). We also supply mediators for opposing sides in lawsuits and family law disputes involving other law firms’ clients. Since 1949, our general practice law firm has built a strong reputation in the Vancouver area. Attorney referrals are welcome.
You naturally want fairness and strong advocacy as you grapple with a legal conflict. Mediation may meet your criteria and provide a less costly and stressful path to resolution than a courtroom battle. Learn more about how mediation can help you put your legal problems behind you.
