Sometimes it is necessary to fight a legal issue to the bitter end, but a lengthy and contentious trial can cost more than just time and money. The process is mentally and emotionally draining, and the parties give up a great deal of discretion to the judge with no guarantee of success before a jury.
There is a better solution. "Mediation"
Mediation, also known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), is a process by which the opposing parties in a dispute seek to reach an amicable resolution of their disputed issues outside the courtroom.
The Law Offices of Frederick W. Ford can provide:
