Mediation is quickly becoming a popular alternative to going to court. Mediation is negotiation with the assistance of a neutral, the mediator. The process is confidential, voluntary and effective at resolving claims, with 75% of cases reaching a settlement.
The mediator does not give legal advice or make decisions for the parties, but instead focuses the conversation on the issues that need to be resolved.
I found an attorney that was more than capable of meeting my needs. He actually cared about me and not what he could get out of it.— Chandler Edmond
The process of preparing for a mediation, having an impartial mediator listen with a fresh ear, and asking new questions, gives both sides of a claim the chance to better understand what terms they are willing to accept in a settlement. Even if a case does not settle at mediation, the process of discussing the issues with the mediator often leads to settlement in the future.
A successful mediator is a good listener, puts both sides at ease, and helps all parties focus on the goal of resolution. Mr. Lemon brings those qualities plus his experience as an attorney to his mediation services, which are available for general civil cases and domestic relations cases.
