Find a Mediator for Settlement Conferences

Mediators for Settlement Conferences are mediators who are attorneys and can give a legal opinion as long as your attorney is present. Settlement Conferences are frequently used close to trial or when parties are in a position to resolve their entire case. Ideally attorneys would be present (if a party is using an attorney), and the parties would be ready to finalize their agreements at the time of mediation.

Find a Mediator

There are many kinds of mediators. Mediators have different styles and philosophies. Choose the style that works best for you.
