Toronto Mediation Services for Trusts and Estate Disputes

Estate disputes can be lengthy and stressful for everyone involved. Estate mediation allows the parties an opportunity to settle their dispute with a neutral third party mediator. The goal of mediation is to reach a practical, mutually agreeable resolution, prior to undertaking more costly litigation.

Eisen Law offers skilled, thoughtful mediation services exclusively in trusts and estate matters. Our partner Shael Eisen has extensive experience successfully mediating estate disputes. Having spent many years in the courtroom as an estate litigator, Mr. Eisen can better identify the most relevant issues in your dispute and provide the legal expertise and guidance necessary to find positive solutions.

Why choose mediation to resolve your dispute

In Toronto, mediation is mandatory in many estate disputes, including:

Even where it is not mandatory, mediation is often the most effective means of resolving a matter, and offers an opportunity to maintain familial and personal relationships that can become strained during difficult estate disputes. Often, the end results of mediation can provide a better solution than a court order.

Looking early to mediation can often resolve contentious matters before they reach the litigation stage, saving a great deal of time and expense.

A mediator is not like a judge. They do not impose a settlement or decide your case. Rather, they work to find common ground and foster understanding among the parties.

A knowledgeable, experienced, independent mediator can provide valuable insight to participants about their positions, and facilitate constructive dialogue. Even if mediation does not succeed in fully settling all outstanding issues, parties can often resolve some aspects of their dispute. This helps eliminate extraneous or less important issues, and reduce the amount of time spent in court.
