Disputes involving guardianships, probate and trust issues can present challenging legal issues. As these disputes frequently involve family members, estate and fiduciary litigation has an emotional component not generally found in other areas of the law. For this and other reasons, mediation can be a sound means of dispute resolution in these cases.

Every lawyer recognizes the benefits of mediation when compared with litigation. Unlike court proceedings, mediation is not a matter of public record. In addition, mediation is generally less expensive than protracted litigation. Perhaps most importantly, mediation does not place the outcome of the dispute in the hands of a judge.
