Mediation Services for
Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation is a structured, interactive process for conflict resolution of legal issues between conflicting parties, with an impartial third person’s assistance. It is a method of alternative dispute resolution with many benefits. It takes place in a non-adversarial setting, promoting compromise and the settlement of legal disputes. It also provides a venue for the parties to negotiate issues without a formal courtroom proceeding. In mediation, disputing parties remain in control of the outcome instead of the uncertainty of a judge or jury deciding the future. Mediation is an opportunity for mutual satisfaction for both sides, encouraging cooperation instead of hostility. It is a final attempt to resolve conflicts before litigation and is utilized for family law conflicts, civil and corporate disputes.

Family Law Mediation

In Florida, the process of mediation is mandatory for family law disputes. Through a mediation conference, the parties can decide the terms of a divorce or amicably settle estate administration disputes. The parties in dispute can choose a mediator. If they are unable to agree, one can be assigned to their case by a family court. Mediators are required to remain neutral, not coerce either party into an agreement, and always work for both parties’ mutual good. Some types of family law cases that may benefit from mediation are:

  • Division of Assets and Debts
  • Alimony
  • Parenting Plans
  • Estate Disputes
A successful mediation conference results in a settlement agreement, signed by both parties and presented to the court for approval. If an agreement is unable to be reached, the case is referred for a hearing before a family court judge or jury.

Corporate Mediation

Settling business disputes through mediation is generally a preferred means of resolving conflict. The process is an alternative to a lengthy and costly courtroom proceeding and provides confidentiality for both parties. Mediation promotes understanding and compromise between the parties in conflict. Some types of commercial cases that often utilize mediation to resolve conflicts are:
  • Contract disputes
  • Employment claims
  • Collections
  • Real estate disputes
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
