Mediation for Estate and Trust Disputes

At Eisen Law, the use of mediation as a dispute resolution tool has been the most profound development in our field of practice since the firm’s inception. Our lawyers have regularly used mediation to effectively and efficiently resolve even the most challenging estates disputes.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution. During a mediation, the mediator (who is a neutral third party) helps the parties in a dispute to come to a resolution. Unlike a judge, a mediator does not impose a resolution or make a final decision. He or she simply facilitates constructive communication and negotiation and attempts to lead the parties to a mutually acceptable resolution.

Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution

The costs, risks, delays, and stress involved in estate litigation have made mediation an essential option for satisfactorily resolving estate disputes.

Mediation reduces the money and time needed to come to a resolution without sacrificing desired outcomes.  Mediation can dramatically decrease costs involved in litigation, diminish stress, and minimize potential lasting relational impact between parties. Parties can move forward more quickly and resume their lives.

At Eisen Law, our lawyers have been involved in more than 300 mediations, both as counsel and as mediators. We have used mediation successfully to settle highly difficult and contentious cases. While many claims can be resolved through mediation and arbitration, we are fully prepared to represent clients’ rights at any level of court should matters proceed to litigation.
