Certified Mediator Serving Individuals And Businesses
For most individuals and businesses, traditional litigation is something to avoid if possible. Even in cases that you win, the costs, the time spent and the stress involved in such an ongoing contentious process can be far too costly to be worth it. Even in cases when attorney fees are awarded to the winner, there is still the peripheral costs. Mediation provides a more efficient and effective dispute resolution process.
At Haft Law Group, we provide mediation services in West Palm Beach and the surrounding Florida areas. Our lead attorney, Scott Haft, has been certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a circuit civil certified mediator. We provide mediation services for individuals and businesses. Attorney Haft can serve as a neutral or he can represent your interests as your lawyer in a mediation session. With our vast experience in a range of business, real estate and probate law matters, we provide efficient mediation services for our clients.
The Mediation Process
We help clients through the entire process of mediation, which includes:
- Entering into the mediation: Mediation can be freely chosen by the parties in a dispute or it can be ordered by the court in cases that are already in the litigation process.
- The mediation session: A mediation session involves the two parties and the person facilitating the mediation (often called a “neutral” or “the mediator”). Each of the disputing parties is also legally allowed and encouraged to have an attorney with them to represent their interests during the mediation. The process does not proceed like a court case, with evidence and contentious arguments. It is meant to be a more amicable, collaborative process in which the mediator helps both parties reach an agreed-upon resolution.
We handle mediation with professionalism and care. We leverage our knowledge of the legal landscape to help parties find resolution.
