We work one on one with our clients in conflict, to design and implement a specific working plan to produce results in a timely manner.

Best Ideas Win

The Best Ideas Win is a very practical approach to resolving conflicts. It involves exploratory, interactive and participatory discussion, combined with a detailed analysis of the facts and legal issues surrounding the case at hand to help determine a fair and just resolution for you.

In the first stage of our process, we explore the fundamental reasons underlying the conflict. We will explore all of the dimensions of the conflict: the facts, the issues, the rationales, the goals and the interests.

Next our program specifically addresses the parties on interpersonal level, as we engage the parties privately to confidentially, to address any sensitive matters. Lastly we analyze all of the important legal issues and interpretations of the law that may affect the outcome, if the matter goes to trial.

Unlike some mediators, we are not passive actors in this process. When engaged, we actively help develop the best ideas in order for both sides pursue the goal of a fair and just resolution to all of their difficult issues and concerns.

Top Ten Mediation Questions

  • 1. Are mediation settlements binding and enforceable, isn't mediation voluntary? Yes the process of mediation itself is voluntary. However when we reach a settlement agreement, which we almost always do, that agreement becomes a contract.  In writing, our agreements  have the same legal protections as any other contract.
  • 2. Do both sides need to agree to mediate the case? Yes. In order to effectively mediate, both sides have to be willing to try one session, If they are not satisfied, there is no cost or obligation to continue. After the first session, the parties can work in the same room with the mediator or  work  separately and privately with the mediator if they so chose.
  • 3. Should I get the agreement in writing?   Yes whenever possible in writing helps to avoid any future misunderstandings.

It is about the people involved, how to best settle their differences and specifically improve their life going forward with specialists trained and certified in divorce mediation.

It also important to help the parties understand not just what they want, but what they need, in terms of both the process and the future plans, or simply put " where do we go from here." We will provide you with a complete road map to resolve your case quickly and efficiently for both the spouses and any other family members.

Alternatives

There are other alternatives. You may choose facilitation where the parties have a managed discussion about particular subjects, with a trained facilitator leading the group conversation, keeping the parties on point but the ultimate goal is not resolution.

Arbitration is another alternative. The arbitrator is your own private judge, hired by both sides. He makes binding rulings and the ultimate decisions in a semi-formal trial format. This process is usually quicker than a trial. Like court, you can present evidence and witnesses, but have no control over the outcome and you must accept whatever the arbiter says without question.

Then there is litigation with all of the known associated dollars and time, the 'good' old fashioned way. Go out and hire a team of lawyers and sue each other for years. Remember if you mediate first and you are not satisfied, you can always return to this litigation option, if that is really what you want.

Alternative Law focuses more on mediation because it has the best settlement results and the highest rate of client satisfaction.

ADR Information and Pricing

Pricing depends upon on the specific details and complexity of your case. We try to make fair allowances for non-profits, veterans, certain businesses and those of limited means. There may be appropriate sliding scales, when submitted by the EEOC or your local human rights agency. You should discuss this with your selected mediator prior to the process being initiated, but savings of 35%-65% over traditional litigation methods are reasonable.

Justice and mediation both work best for business and consumers when you begin with a fair playing field, and end when the best ideas win.
