“It is less expensive to resolve legal issues in mediation rather than going to court because ongoing litigation can increase your attorney fees and court costs.”
If you are involved in a legal dispute, court proceedings are not always your only choice when it comes to reaching a resolution.
Mediation can allow both parties to come together, work with an unbiased mediator, and determine if a negotiation can be made.

What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a confidential process in which the parties explore settlement with the assistance of an independent party who facilitates the settlement discussions.

There are many considerations how to approach mediation including choosing the right mediator, understanding the mediator’s process, strategizing the client’s position at mediation, and effectively negotiating during the mediation.

Types of Legal Matters That Can Be Resolved Through Mediation
Employment law cases can involve discrimination, wage and payment disputes, wrongful termination, and sexual harassment. To prevent these lawsuits from going to court, we may recommend mediation sessions to see if we can come to a fair and reasonable agreement.
Business lawsuits often involve contracts, partnership status, operating agreements, financial rights, fraud, and misleading business claims. It may be possible to mediate the situation by attending one or more sessions with a neutral third party who can help both sides come to an agreement.
Real Estate Cases
San Diego real estate lawsuits tend to involve problems with property lines, titles, ownership, breach of sale, concealing the condition of the property, HOAs, and leasing agreements. Resolving these cases quickly with the help of a mediator is the best way to keep your legal costs down.
“Mediation sessions can be scheduled in a matter of days or weeks, and participants can be involved in choosing the time and place here in San Diego.”
