Mediation is a voluntary and confidential approach to trying to resolve a claim between parties. It provides the parties an opportunity to be in control of their own outcomes without having a court or somebody else impose a resolution on their behalf. Joel LaCourse is a trained and certified mediator and as well as Certified Collarabative Resolution Attorney.
Mr. LaCourse has had the opportunity to resolve literally hundreds of cases with parties. Mediation is an empowering process that saves the clients literally thousands and thousands of dollars of potentially unnecessary litigation fees and costs.
Our firm provides multiple forms of mediation. We have mediated with clients who have no attorneys providing both mediation and drafting services. We educate the parties on how the litigation process goes and other options that they may have. We then begin the process of attempting to help them reach an agreement if possible. Over 95% of these clients end up with a successful mediation without any further legal costs.
In addition, we provide mediation services for represented parties. And while as a mediator we make no final decisions for the parties, through our training and expertise we help the parties understand what their options are and risks associated with their positions to help them arrive at an agreement that is in everyone's best interest. Over 85% of these cases are resolved at LaCourse Law.
Mr. LaCourse has served as a "special master" appointed by the court to make final decisions in numerous areas of law including but not limited to: discovery disputes, child support arrearages, visitation schedules and other important domestic matters. If you would like to contact our office and inquire about our mediation services, we would be happy to give you more information about the options that you may have.
