Mediation Lawyer Serving the Woodside, Palo Alto, CA and surrounding San Francisco Bay Area

Mediation is one of the most powerful tools available for settling a legal dispute. It brings parties together to focus on the issue at hand and explore all potential resolutions, all the while understanding how keeping the matter out of court is beneficial to everyone involved.

Mediation is based in communication. A neutral, third-party works with those involved in the dispute to explore their thoughts and feelings on the issue, as well as possible solutions. Compromise and negotiation are important, and required to end the dispute. Unlike the courtroom where all parties can walk away unhappy with the outcome, successful mediation requires everyone be satisfied with the resolution or the process is incomplete. Mediation is flexible and nobody is bound to the outcome unless he or she chooses so.

How it works

Mediation is based on communication. During a typical mediation meeting...

  • You and the disputing party can tell your side of the story to the mediator (usually a lawyer).
  • Your mediation lawyer acts as a neutral third party to keep the discussion civil.
  • You and the disputing party can negotiate to reach a compromise.

Unlike litigation where all parties might walk away unhappy with the outcome, successful mediation requires everyone to be satisfied with the resolution. Mediation is flexible, meaning nobody is bound to the outcome.
Mediation is not right in every case, and sometimes going to court is necessary to resolve a dispute.
