An Attorney and Mediation: Salt and Pepper or Oil and Water?

Cindy Best

Some people think that mediation is not for attorneys. Actually, we as family law attorneys highly recommend mediation as a way to resolve divorce and custody issues.

It works one of two ways:

1. we as the attorney who gives you legal advice takes the case to a neutral third party/mediator who acts as a go between with our “team” (you and me) and the “other team” (your spouse/partner and his/her attorney); or  

2. You retain Best Law to be the neutral third party mediator for you and the other side. Bring an attorney or come by yourself. We act as the go between for the two “teams.”

The best advice is to make sure you get legal advice before you sign any legal papers…that makes logical sense right?
