Q. Why should I choose mediation as opposed to formal litigation?

You can save yourself time, frustration, and avoid costly court filing and attorney fees all while receiving the same mediation for free!
Q. What will be the result of my mediation?
A. During the mediation process our professionally trained law students will explore thoroughly what each party to the dispute is seeking. We use a low stress and effective method of letting each person express their concerns. Through this process we make it easier for everyone to come to an amicable agreement.
