Mediation Prep

A form of alternative dispute resolution called Evaluative Mediation, is one that provides guidance when participants are unsure how to resolve an issue, or if there's concern about court approval.

The mediator looks at the dispute based on their professional experience and predicts likely outcomes in each party’s position. This helps avoid litigation by placing trust into agreed-upon authorities who offer substitute opinions for those sought by a judge.

Resolution Assistance

Mediation can be effectively conducted whether you have attorney representation or not.

If you are not represented by an attorney but would like to have counsel present for the mediation, Austin+Koffron can help you get an attorney for mediation sessions only.
