Business to Business Mediation Helps Preserve Profitable Relationships

2015-07-09T01:48:31+00:00

Instinctively, most large businesses have a lawyer on staff or on retainer and promptly resort to the threat of litigation when there is a difficulty with a customer or vendor. I would suggest that a lawyer should only be brought in as a last resort because lawyers, or the threat of litigation escalates matters to the point where there is often a breakdown in the B2B [...]

Family Law: It’s Not Always About Divorce

2015-07-09T01:49:49+00:00

In addition to years of success as a mediator in divorce cases, I also have proven expertise in helping families solve other problems through mediation as an alternative to therapy or going through conflict using lawyers. One example is when I have helped unmarried couples sort out their relationship break-up in a sane and fair way. Before same-sex marriages were lawful, I did this quite often [...]

Benefits of Confidentiality in Mediation

2015-07-09T01:50:08+00:00

Confidentially is assured in formal mediation. In California, in both Federal and State proceedings, case law, (common law) and statue protect parties from disclosure of their discussions in formal mediation. Confidentially is also assured in mediation concerning matters which have not yet proceeded to litigation. This is a significant benefit to the parties. In general this means that whatever is said in mediation cannot be legally [...]
