Mediation

We strive to alleviate the emotional and financial stresses that litigation can cause, offering timely and effective mediation as an alternative.

Overview

At The Geller Law Group, we understand that legal disputes can be emotionally and financially draining.

That’s why we specialize in providing efficient and effective mediation services, helping you resolve conflicts in a peaceful and constructive manner.

Mediation involves an impartial mediator fostering a space where individuals can communicate openly and work through their challenges. It serves as a private, confidential, and cooperative avenue toward settling differences.

Mediation opens the door to innovative solutions that may not have been previously considered.

This strategy is not confined to specific types of disputes; instead, it’s a flexible means that can be applied to a wide range of legal issues. Whether it’s disagreements among shareholders, challenges with child support, or turmoil within family-owned businesses, mediation presents an easier path to resolution.

Our experienced team of mediators at The Geller Law Group is proficient in family law and business law and offers hands-on support tailored to your unique situation.

I strive to achieve a satisfactory resolution through constructive dialogue, ensuring both parties feel supported and empowered throughout the mediation process.”

Family Mediation

At The Geller Law Group, we understand that navigating family law issues can be a challenging and emotionally draining process. That’s why we’re proud to offer mediation services as an alternative to traditional litigation. Let’s take a closer look at what mediation entails, the benefits it offers, and the role mediators play in the process.

What is Family Mediation?

Family mediation is a voluntary, confidential, and non-adversarial process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussions between parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable agreement. In family law, this method can be particularly effective in resolving disagreements related to separation, divorce, child custody, and support arrangements.

Benefits of Mediation

Choosing mediation comes with numerous benefits, including:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Mediation typically costs less than traditional court proceedings due to the reduced need for extensive attorney fees and court expenses.
  • Control and creativity: Mediation allows parties involved to maintain control over the outcome of their case and explore creative solutions best suited to their unique circumstances.
  • Speedy resolution: Mediation typically takes less time than litigation, as parties can avoid lengthy court processes and reach agreements more efficiently.
  • Preserving relationships: By promoting mutual understanding and cooperation, mediation can help maintain amicable relationships, which is especially important when children are involved.

Role of Mediators: What They Can and Cannot Do

Mediators play a critical role in the mediation process, but their responsibilities have clear limitations. Here’s what they can and cannot do:

Can do: Mediators facilitate discussions, provide legal information (but not advice), and help the parties explore various options for resolving their issues. They ensure that both parties have a fair chance to express their views and concerns.

Cannot do: Mediators cannot take sides or offer legal advice to either party. They don’t decide the outcome of the case, as the responsibility of reaching the agreement lies solely with the parties involved. Additionally, while mediators advise on the law, they cannot determine legal rights for the parties.

At The Geller Law Group, our experienced mediators are committed to assisting you through the often-tumultuous process of family law mediation, guiding you toward finding a balanced and fair resolution.

Business Mediation

Our Approach to Mediation of Business Disputes

Litigation, with its high costs and significant time demands, poses a considerable challenge for small businesses, not just in financial terms but also in terms of time spent away from running the business. Mediation is another option that may be more beneficial for small businesses. 

Through mediation, business owners are able to actively participate in resolving disputes, resulting in more innovative and practical solutions than may be possible in court.

GLG’s team of experienced mediators leverages their years of experience in commercial business litigation and transactional expertise to work closely with clients to understand their unique needs and concerns. 

We believe in a collaborative approach that empowers parties to find mutually acceptable solutions rather than engaging in costly and time-consuming litigation.

Our goal is to facilitate negotiations between business partners, suppliers, and clients to reach fair and equitable solutions.

Why Choose to Mediate Business Disputes?

  • Cost-Effective: Mediation is often more affordable than going to court, saving you time and money.
  • Confidentiality: Mediation proceedings are confidential, ensuring privacy for all parties involved.
  • Control: Parties have more control over the outcome, rather than leaving it in the hands of a judge or jury.
  • Preservation of Relationships: Mediation can help preserve relationships, especially important in business disputes.
