Experienced Mediators Serving Dubuque And Maquoketa

MediationContrary to what many may think, it is not always necessary to take a case to court in order to resolve it. There are many legal challenges that can be worked out through the method of mediation.

To ensure that your dialogues play out fairly, you need the guidance of an experienced mediator.

Understanding The Advantages Of Mediation

Unlike a lawsuit, the process of mediation allows you and your opposing party to take control of your case with confidentiality. This means that you get to plan your own resolution without having to wait on a judge or a jury's final say. You and your opposing party, together with the help of your mediator, may decide when and where your mediation sessions will take place. Your dialogues will take place in privacy and no public record will be created in court, which means that what you say is unlikely to be used against you in court one day.

Many people also opt for mediation because of how much more efficient the process can be compared to a lawsuit, which can take as long as several months or even years. Similarly, the mediation process can also be significantly more cost-effective than filing a lawsuit, allowing you to avoid paying the heavy fees that come with trial representation and court dates.

Helping You Determine Your Needs

Our lawyers are committed to supporting your unique needs. We can help you determine whether mediation would be the right approach to your situation or not, and how you may benefit from the process. This can be especially important in sensitive divorce and child custody cases.

Sometimes, the court may also require you to go through mediation before you can even secure a trial date, in which case, a mediator would be assigned to you.

Whether you voluntarily reach out to us for mediation or one of our attorneys has already been assigned to your case, you can expect us to represent you with strong legal knowledge, integrity and personalized attention for your unique needs.
