Estate planning is not static and is increasingly complex. Often the plan stops short of providing for the kinds of solutions that are needed to deal with evolving family dynamics.
Changing facets include legal, financial, medical, social and family concerns over retirement, dependency, illness, incapacity, autonomy, dignity, long-term care, lifestyle, housing, disability, abuse, neglect, fraud, end of life decisions, and estate planning or lack thereof.
Emotion and principle often cause intransigence and entrenchment in position. Under such circumstances, legal and professional costs are paramount concerns and can accrue exponentially.
We offer a structured approach to mediation, conducive to resolving your dispute and provide an environment to explore practical and viable solutions within a legal and equitable framework.
Estate mediation is a private dispute-resolution process in which parties attempt to resolve their differences out of court with the help of an experienced, impartial estate mediator. It’s a solutions-oriented option for individuals who want to avoid the delays, stress, and costs of formal litigation.
The goal of mediation is to move disputing parties towards a satisfactory compromise. It can take place at any stage of a dispute, whether before the litigation process begins or after a claim is filed.
