Finding Common Sense Solutions Through Mediation

Family Advocates Law Firm believes that there are several avenues to take to reach a resolution of your family law matter. The best result for a dispute often comes through the simplicity of communication and negotiation. Our attorneys pride themselves on their ability to find common sense solutions to legal issues through mediation.  

The Missouri Supreme Court describes mediation as “a process in which a neutral third party facilitates communications between the parties to promote settlement.” (Rule 17.01.) In accordance with the Family Advocates Law Firm mission, the mediator will focus on the desired end result of the parties, and craft a step-by-step approach to solve the legal dispute. Throughout the process, the parties can achieve complete settlement of all legal issues in a safe and protected environment.

Mediation is about compromise without the mud-slinging that may take place in a courtroom. Typically, both parties walk away from mediation with a solution to their conflict and skillful techniques to handle future disputes.
