Mediation and collaborative law are designed to minimize costs and give the litigants more control over the ultimate outcome. Mediation involves a neutral third party who oversees the negotiations between the parties and encourages compromise and settlement. Collaborative law is a relatively new legal process in which the parties agree to openly share information, negotiate their disputes and avoid litigation. The attorneys at Feldstein Grinberg Lang & McKee, P.C. have experience resolving matters through both processes and can help you achieve the resolution you seek.

Everyone likes the idea of lower costs and more control. If the parties are amenable to negotiating a settlement, there are a number of family law areas that can be effectively resolved outside a courtroom:
Collaborative law replaces court hearings and self-interest with multiple collaborative sessions and an honest concern for the other family members’ well-being. Each party is represented by a collaboratively trained attorney, and both parties sign a participation agreement to resolve their differences via a series of meetings with counsel rather than in court. If the process comes apart and litigation is necessary, the parties generally have to start over with different attorneys. So, everyone is committed to the collaborative law model. Like mediation, the process works best in divorce matters. If a less adversarial approach appeals to you, a collaborative lawyer can guide you through the process and still protect your rights.
