Now even the courts, and state and local governments, along with , any plaintiff and defense firms recommend Alternative Law as one of the most effective mediation service providers, simply because Alternative Law Mediation Results settles cases in the most cost effective, efficient manner.
Mediation is a strategic process in which two or more people work with and an independent, highly trained neutral expert (mediator, attorney,or educator),to resolve serious conflicts without all of the cost and wasted time associated with a courtroom and litigation. The mediator helps the parties clearly define their issues and reach an agreement that is in the best interest of everyone involved. Alternative Law's goal is to keep you out of the courtroom.
Mediation is sometimes referred to as facilitated negotiation. Mediators can help negotiate the resolution of a dispute even under the most difficult circumstances. However, it is never a simple or easy process when your assets or important aspects of your own life, business, or family are embroiled in intense controversy.
Many times there are very strong and emotional feelings between people, sometimes justified and sometimes not, which makes them unable to effectively communicate with each other. The mediator can help restore, adjust and reopen those lines of communication, and help resolve the conflict. At Alternative Law we assist our clients in developing creative, alternative solutions and multiple options that will work in the short term and withstand the test of time.
Ultimately, we believe that the best ideas win emerges from effectively combining the ideas of all the interested parties and crafting a unique solution to their issues. The agreement must be both mutually acceptable and the resolution must clearly address each party's particular concerns.

Why Mediation costs less, is more efficient and most times you need just hire one mediator and not two lawyers to do the actual work on your case.

Is mediation new and is it a proven process?
Many of you may not know that mediation has been around since biblical times. That makes it at least 2 thousand years old, very well time tested and proven. However, not everyone understands its role in the legal system because L.A., Law, The Practice, and Perry Mason have received all of publicity over the years. There is much more drama and of course, corresponding costs for the courtroom, the lawyers, and the judges. Mediation has just results for all parties.
In the United States over the last quarter of a century. mediation has become the fastest growing and least expensive way to resolve personal and professional disputes in all types of conflicts such as civil litigation, corporate disagreements, and divorce. It is so well respected process that is now recommended and proposed by almost all state and federal courts across the United States of America.
What does it cost?
Cost is a critical component in any professional service. People often chose mediation because they receive excellent service and only have to pay one mediator, versus paying two lawyers. Our rates range from $50 per hour to $ 245 per hour, per party depending upon the complexity of the dispute, and the qualifications and experience of the mediator.
How long does it take?
Each conflict case is unique in its own ways,and requires different needs and resources. As a result no estimate of time can be precise. However, we have a guideline for divorce cases which average 7-10 sessions and commercial cases, require a minimum of 4 hours.
