To reduce the time and expense of litigation, the law firm of A.L. Bemish, P.C. employs alternative means to resolve disputes and promote early settlements. Mediation can be effective when 2 or more parties reach an impasse. The process is informal, and costs a fraction of a civil proceeding.
Mediation can either be binding or facilitative. In binding mediation, an arbitrator is given authority to render a decision on the matter. In facilitative mediation, the parties are empowered through an independent mediator to reach their own agreement.
Andrew L. Bemish is a certified mediator in the State of Michigan, and periodically volunteers his services at the Washtenaw County Dispute Resolution Center. As a qualified mediator, he can offer options for resolution, and assist the parties to craft a settlement agreement without a trial, or other kind of legal proceeding.
