Mediation can help you to avoid court, and save you stress, time and money in the process.

Mediation is a dispute resolution process in which an impartial third party – a mediator – helps parties to resolve their legal issues. It is a private, voluntary and collaborative process that gives our mediation clients the ability to reach a mutually acceptable outcome outside of Court. Mediation can be used as an alternative, or complement, to traditional litigation.

MDW Law is pleased to offer mediation services as part of our Personal Injury/Insurance and Family Law practices. Our skilled team of mediators has many years of combined expertise in the art of successfully negotiating disputes. Mediation is a flexible process, chosen by both parties in a dispute that gives everyone involved a greater say in the decisions and issues that affect them most. There are many situations where such a process can help clients work together to solve their differences, and we are here to help make that happen.
