Resolving Legal Disputes Through Mediation for Individual and Business Clients
Legal disputes are an unfortunate part of life for many people and businesses. The good news is that some alternative dispute resolution tools can resolve these disagreements without long, drawn-out court battles.
The Florida mediation attorneys at the Law Office of Young, Berman, Karpf & Gonzalez, P.A. help individuals and businesses resolve disputes while avoiding lengthy, costly and stressful full-blown litigation. We have a strong track record of successful resolutions over nearly three decades of legal practice.
That includes resolving disputes through mediation, an alternative to traditional litigation. In mediation, the parties take their case to a neutral third party - called a mediator - with specialized training to help resolve all or some of the issues. This is often an attractive option because it allows cases to be handled quickly and efficiently than going to court.
Our firm prides itself on honesty, integrity and professionalism in our representation of clients. We have earned a national reputation for successful results for the people and businesses that we represent. All of our principals are Board Certified by the Florida Bar Board of Legal Specialization and Education. The firm has also achieved a coveted AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.
Family Law Mediation
Mediation is a particularly useful tool for resolving a wide array of family law cases.
Whether it is a child custody dispute or a disagreement about how assets should be divided following a divorce, mediation is one way to limit some of the contentiousness associated with family law litigation. Mediation and negotiation allow people to break down the dispute into discrete issues and resolve them individually.
Mediation also gives the parties to a family law case the power to have a say in how the issues are resolved. Instead of leaving it up to a judge, the parties work directly with an experienced mediator to reach a compromise that is acceptable to both sides.
Mediation Services for Businesses
Mediation is a common solution for businesses locked in a broad spectrum of legal disputes.
Many companies prefer arbitration over traditional litigation. Arbitration is a formal proceeding that is similar to courtroom litigation, but it takes place behind closed doors in front of a private arbitrator. Unlike in mediation, an arbitrator’s decision is final and binding.
The benefit of mediation is that it is a less formal approach, which focuses on collaborative problem-solving. That can be helpful in complicated business law cases where creative and flexible solutions may be required.
