Why elect mediation in an estate dispute?

There are several advantages to choosing mediation over going to trial:

Costs Savings – Estate litigation is very expensive. Settling at mediation can greatly reduce legal expenses.

Save Time – It can take years to get to trial and after trial, there may be an appeal. Mediation can get the dispute resolved on a much more timely basis.

Uncertainty – No one can predict how a judge may rule in any case. Mediation gives control of the process back to the parties .

Privacy – Most Court decisions are reported on the internet for anyone to see. Mediation is a private and confidential process so your private affairs are kept private.

Stress Reduction – Estate litigation is very stressful. Settling at mediation allows the parties to move on with their lives.

Most estate disputes can be resolved well in advance of trial as long as the parties involved are willing to be reasonable. Even if you believe that you should take your case all the way to trial, there are many situations where estate mediation provides a more cost-efficient solution to your dispute.

Hiring an experienced mediator like Charles is vital to your success.
