Kansas City Mediation Lawyer

 

Not all legal battles need to end up in court. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is one option that many families consider when attempting to settle a divorce, custody matter or other issue. It allows them to take control of their own future, rather than leave their fate in the hands of a judge.

Finding a Middle Ground
One method of alternative dispute resolution is mediation. During this time, a certified neutral third party will facilitate discussion, allowing couples to express their grievances and communicate their goals. Ultimately, the aim is to reach a settlement both parties can agree upon.

As a Kansas City mediation attorney, I will attend and help you prepare for these sessions. With me by your side and at your service, you will never have to go into a meeting blind. We will thoroughly discuss the facts of your matter before your scheduled mediation, and talk about what you can expect to achieve.

Many times, the opposing party will arrive for a session with little to no idea what mediation will entail. This gives my clients a significant advantage. I will assist you in preparing the necessary documents and instruct you on important areas of focus. By simply knowing your needs in advance, you can benefit greatly from ADR.

A large number of cases can be successfully resolved through mediation. Even if you have already initiated court proceedings, it is not too late to enter alternative dispute resolution. It is consistently cost effective, and is less stressful and more speedy than a trial.
