Ottawa Mediation Lawyers
Many people immediately think of mediation in a family law context. Mediation and other aspects of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) — conciliation and arbitration — may be used to resolve issues involving business, civil, estate, family and other areas of the law, efficiently and economically, avoiding unnecessary costs and delays.
If you are working through legal issues that you seek to address via alternative dispute resolution methods, it is important to correctly choose your legal team. Mediators who are only experienced in mediation or only experienced in the law may bring a limited perspective to your dispute. Our mediators have a combined 90 years of legal experience and also are trained and experienced mediators.
All of our Ottawa mediation lawyers are Kansas Supreme Court-Approved Mediators who are prepared to mediate in most contested areas of the law. Additionally, one of our partners is a retired judge with close to a quarter century of judicial experience. He is impartial and unbiased when serving as a mediator.
We are prepared to structure our offering based on your needs. In addition to mediation, we are prepared to pursue conciliation, allowing a mediator to make recommendations to a hearing officer or judge, or arbitration, where your mediator will make a binding decision regarding the outcome of the dispute in question.
It is important to realize that all forms of ADR are likely to be less expensive than litigation, and the parties to the dispute can control their own destiny by participating in the process.
Regardless of your issue, we are prepared to put our experience to work for you.
