Using Mediation to Resolve Civil Disputes

Mediation is especially well-suited for resolving disputes in estate and family law matters, because it can preserve family relationships that litigation may destroy forever. It can also restore trust between partners in a commercial venture and re-focus their attentions on making the enterprise work. Mediation is much less expensive than traditional litigation and produces results in a more timely fashion.
