A learned judge once said that no one wins in court. By this, he meant that the family loses control of decisions and that the expense is extreme. So, instead of spending money on two separate attorneys, mediation allows the parties to pay for one mediator to resolve all of the issues in the case. Moreover, even if the parties initially retain two separate attorneys, the court may still order the parties to attempt mediation before there is a trial. Best Law Firm welcomes parties who are represented by counsel, as well as parties who are unrepresented. Attempting mediation before courtroom litigation will save the parties time and money.
