Susan Sloane Mediation Services
Mediation can help you resolve legal disputes for less money, in less time, and with less frustration. It is a tool available in just about every type of legal dispute, and it has allowed many people to avoid the courtroom…
…while also preserving important relationships and protecting the privacy of those involved in a dispute – all of which can seem impossible when a dispute is settled in the courtroom.
Mediation is effective for resolving all sorts of legal matters, including family disputes such as divorce or elder care, landlord and tenant disputes, business disputes, and general legal and civil disputes. As long as all parties involved are willing to discuss the issue and accept there are benefits to resolving the matter outside of the courtroom, a skilled mediator can guide them through a successful mediation.
There are many mediation benefits, in addition to its ability to work in a variety of instances. It is confidential, so nobody needs to worry about private family information or sensitive business information being released to the public. It is based in respect and communication, which makes it possible to resolve a legal issue without long-term damage to a relationship – something that is especially important in family disputes.
“Relationships of trust depend on our willingness to look not only to our own interests, but also the interests of others.”
