Choosing the Best Path
Mediation is often considered a favorable alternative to litigation. After all, it is typically cheaper, faster, and less stressful. During a mediation session, both parties sit down with a trained mediator to discuss the situation at hand and achieve an adequate resolution. Generally, it allows room for more creative, customized solutions than the courtroom. As a certified mediator, I have experience helping clients resolve disputes outside of trial for many years. If you’d like more information on how the process works, please do not hesitate to reach out to my office.
While mediation provides many benefits, it is not always the proper approach. At times, it is virtually impossible for both parties to see eye-to-eye and uphold an agreement that is not legally binding. In these scenarios, you may need to pursue litigation. Going to court can be an effective method of dispute resolution in and of itself, and it is not always wise to avoid it. As I tell all of my clients, I would be happy to represent you in or out of the courtroom.
Ultimately, there is nothing you can read online that will clearly advise you whether your best path is mediation or litigation. It is always recommended that you meet with an attorney to discuss your situation and determine the best path to resolution. If you’re located in the north TX area, go ahead and give me a call.
