Alternative Law’s mediation solution process is a very engaging and challenging experience that produces resolution, rewards, and above all, measurable results.
We believe that, in mediation, the more experienced, disciplined, and creative that you are, the more successful that you will be. The more comprehensive alternatives that you develop, the better your final resolution plan will be.
When you have reached that nadir, the most difficult period in a conflict, your mind can become singularly focused and your goals can become the clearest. Energy is a force behind all of us. Emotions play a role that can have a powerful effect. They are often overlooked; yet they can revive or destroy you or your company. They drive us to success, to failure, and to conflict. Harnessing those underlying concerns and providing a comprehensive resolution plan are essential elements of our processes. Utilizing our experience resolving thousands of cases, together we identify all of your issues, propose realistic alternatives, and develop the most appropriate course of action. After thorough analysis, we implement the most comprehensive plan in a systematic fashion, utilizing our strategic solution techniques.
Often, the best opportunities present themselves when conflicts have escalated the most. When these conflicts are the most painful and at their peak, the need for change is most critical. Then, it is the time to adjust, adapt, and advance. Proper, well thought-out strategic resolution plans and responses are the most important.
It is up to you and us together, as a part of the mediation process, to be alert, yet patient and recognize those very challenging opportunities. We believe that crisis and opportunity are similar, two different sides of the same coin, and affect us all at different times and stages of our lives.
In difficult mediations, everyone walks a fine line to create effectively a fair and just resolution for all sides. When you do, you can rejoice. When you don’t, in mediation, together we must just work harder and differently. We have a team to provide different perspectives to resolve your issues. Although Alternative Law has excellent processes and systems, no one person or one system has all of the answers or all of the best ideas. We produce results together, using theory, practice, and experience to achieve excellent resolutions and the best results in the industry.
We are fact-based realists. Determination and teamwork are critical skills in the mediation process. We know that mediation does not work in every case, but with Alternative Law, it is usually effective. If you choose, please feel free to point out that in at least 5%-10% of our cases mediation does not work. Or you can focus instead on the 90% of the time when it does work. Nothing that is of quality in life comes easily, not even mediation results.
