ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION/MEDIATION SERVICES
Attorney Newman is a Certified Florida Supreme Court Circuit Civil Mediator, specializing in employment law disputes.
Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process where an employee and an employer discuss and choose possible solutions to resolve a dispute. It involves the help of an independent and impartial person, called a mediator, who helps the parties reach a resolution, which is acceptable to all parties involved. The mediator helps facilitate the discussion and assists the parties by providing a venue where they can confidentially discuss each other's position, listen respectfully to each other, and weigh the advantages and disadvantages and costs of litigation.
If the mediation leads to a settlement, a mediator can assist the parties in drafting the settlement agreement. If it does not lead to a settlement, the parties are free to continue mediation sessions until the dispute is resolved, or an "impasse" may be declared, at which time the parties may chose to litigate their claims in a court of law.
Whether one is facing a simple or complex family law issue, an attorney should always be consulted to optimize the chances of accomplishing favorable results. No two cases are exactly alike. Each case has to be thoroughly analyzed both legally and factually. The client has to be informed of the progress of his or her case.Our family law practice includes but is not limited to divorce, domestic violence, adoption, child support enforcement, paternity disputes and preparation of agreements, both pre- and post-nuptials.
