When direct negotiations between attorneys for the parties do not yield a settlement in a court case, voluntary mediation by a neutral third party may provide a viable alternative. Our White and Bright trust and estate litigation attorneys have extensive experience representing parties in mediations that resolve a case on terms fair to all parties concerned. Our lawyers also have experience serving as both court-appointed and private mediators.
Resolving disputes sooner rather than later is often advantageous for the parties from the standpoint of both costs and stress. Pressing forward with litigation also does not provide a guarantee of winning for either party — adverse decisions by judges and juries can come completely unexpectedly. In addition, courts often express a preference for parties to resolve matters themselves. For all these reasons, mediation may provide a beneficial way for parties to find a mutually agreeable solution that brings litigation to an end.
