Going to trial to settle disputes can be quite time consuming and expensive.

If you cannot reach an amicable solution with the other party in your dispute, consider our law firm’s mediation services.

People cannot all agree 100% of the time, so it is a given that they will have arguments from time to time. Arguments and disputes are common among we humans and vary in degree of seriousness. Sometimes disagreements escalate to a point where legal intervention may seem inevitable. But before trial, it is prudent to consider soliciting the wise counsel of a highly skilled mediator, for mediation can resolve the matter more economically and provide certainty.

At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, L.L.P., our attorneys are proficient in negotiation and conflict resolution, which makes us highly efficient mediators. If you are interested in settling your legal issue outside of the courtroom in a manner that is less time consuming, costly and stressful than litigation, contact our firm’s professional mediators today. We can provide our mediation services for various legal issues pertaining to everything from family and real estate law to business and oil and gas law.

A Deeper Look At Mediation

When a person wants to resolve his or her legal issues with another party in a mutually beneficial manner that forgoes going to trial, mediation is the best route to take. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution wherein the disputants come together to discuss mutually acceptable solutions to their issues in the presence of a neutral third party known as a mediator.

“Mediation [occurs when] . . . disputants come together to discuss mutually acceptable solutions to their issues in the presence of a neutral third party known as a mediator.”

Unlike traditional court proceedings, mediation is centered on problem solving and puts decision-making power in the hands of the disputants. The mediator is present to simply facilitate and advance communication between both parties. He or she does not take sides in any matter pertaining to the issue and has no power to make any decisions regarding settlement. By placing decision-making power in the disputants’ hands, they are more apt to reach mutually agreeable solutions to their issues that they can live with and abide by. If you have exhausted all measures of directly negotiating a settlement with another party, consider contacting Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant for our trusted mediation services.
