Austin+Koffron Mediation Services

Almost any dispute can be resolved through skilled mediation

Families benefit from having a mediator who is familiar with the local courts and who can offer unbiased realism during the mediation process. An experienced and objective mediator can often bring light to settlement options that may not otherwise be apparent to parties or attorneys who are entrenched in their respective litigation positions.

Austin+Koffron provides a variety of mediation services to fit your needs.

Proactive Mediation

Our Proactive Mediation services are for parties who are in conflict but who don’t have the time or energy to devote to the typical divorce or litigation process. You don’t need to get along to mediate.  You don’t need to be a lawyer to negotiate your divorce.  What you need is a skilled mediator who can provide step-by-step guidance to identify, address, and resolve the issues that must be dealt with so that you can move on with your life.

Austin+Koffron provides a time-sensitive and interactive approach to divorce and other family law matters. With an emphasis on pre-mediation preparation, our process ensures that parties are fully ready to negotiate with or without retaining attorneys.  This process is for people who want to have an active hand in how their case progresses, and who are willing to put in the work to get things done.

Our unique approach maximizes the likelihood of reaching a comprehensive and tailored agreement that suits your needs.  For a more detailed explanation of our Proactive Mediation services and an assessment of what we can do for you, contact us for a joint consultation.

Standard Mediation

Standard mediation is required for most original divorce and family law actions in Southwest Michigan.  It is not a question of whether you will participate in mediation, but whether you will successfully reach a settlement when you do.  The skill level of the mediator you select for court-ordered mediation can be the difference between crafting your own solutions or having a judge decide things for you.

Austin+Koffron mediators have experience resolving cases.  We offer drama-free, unbiased guidance regardless of the complexity of your case. With experience and objectivity, our mediators avoid common barriers and help you find settlement options that may not be apparent to parties or attorneys who are entrenched in their respective litigation positions.

If Austin+Koffron has been appointed or court ordered to serve as mediator in your case, either the court will provide notice to Austin+Koffron to initiate the mediation process or a party (with or without counsel) may make the initial contact to our office.
