Mediation As A Better Approach To Resolving Family Law Disputes

Family law mediation allows for you to resolve divorce-related issues in a nonadversarial manner. It allows for you to negotiate your own settlement rather than have a court make such determinations for you. Mediation does not have to be a win or lose circumstance. It is important to remember, however, that the mediator does not represent you. The mediator's function is to identify issues and help facilitate agreement. This in turn can often lead to a more effective resolution of legal disputes.

Since 1999, family law clients have relied upon attorney Lisa Hassett in family law matters. This includes extensive representation in helping individuals dealing with divorce and child custody, property division and child support and spousal support matters. It is her mission to resolve disputes through the mediation process to reduce stress and cost.
