Take Advantage Of The Benefits Of Mediation

Mediation allows parties much more control in determining the outcome of their case than merely fighting it out in court and relying upon a judge to make the final decision. Mediation is when two parties in a dispute go to a neutral person, trained in resolving disagreements and conflict, who helps them negotiate a settlement.

Joseph Allan Shaw is a trained Alabama mediator who enjoys helping parties settle their case in a way that both come away having had a major role in the process. Call him at 251-964-7774 to set up a consultation about your situation.

What Are The Benefits Of Mediation?

Mediation is not for everyone, but if all parties are seeking a fair and equitable solution in a divorce, custody case or law suit, then mediation provides a path where everyone has a chance to leave happy.

  • Mediation is usually much more cost effective (cheaper) than litigation.
  • Mediation can help you finalize your divorce in a timely manner.
  • Mediation allows you to have your own attorney, and is even encouraged that you do so.
  • Mediation often allows couples to resolve their dispute or end their relationship in a manner that will permit them to quickly move on with the rest of their lives rather than getting bogged down in a long and costly legal dispute where the lawyers are sometimes the only ones who win.
  • Mediation can enable parents to effectively work together in raising their children, rather than perpetuating the adversarial relationship that can develop during a long court case.

Let Us Facilitate Your Conversation

It is important to understand that the mediator is neutral, cannot ever represent either party in an individual capacity and does not make any final decision in the case. The role of the mediator is to impartially facilitate the conversation between the parties and help them resolve the matter in a negotiated agreement.
