Laurel Divorce and Mediation Lawyer: The Role of Mediation in Settling Your Case

In mediation, a neutral mediator does not represent either party in a divorce. She facilitates a conversation to help the parties create their own agreement. In mediation, both parties can hire independent counsel to advise them on how to prepare for mediation and to review any documents resulting from the mediation process. Alternatively, some people choose to go forward with mediation without engaging legal counsel.

Attorney Cynthia Lifson can play either role in helping you achieve a mediated settlement.

  • As an attorney, she can inform you of legal issues and give specific advice based on your situation to prepare you for your mediation. We can also accompany you to the mediation meeting. Whether you are only just beginning to consider mediation or you are already committed to the concept, we can make you aware of both the advantages and disadvantages of the mediation process.
  • As a highly experienced mediator, she takes on a neutral role to guide and facilitate clients through the mediation process. In this context, we cannot provide specific legal advice to our mediation clients, but we work to ensure that there is a fair setting where the parties can cooperate and build a sustainable agreement.

We have seen first-hand the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques such as mediation. It can be a cost-effective and fast path toward an agreement that, in many cases, provides a creative and satisfactory result for everyone involved.
