What is mediation?
Mediation is a process of problem solving where a neutral third party helps you and the person with whom you have conflict assists you in solving a problem.
Mediation can be very effective because it helps you and the other party come to an agreement. By coming to your own agreement, you avoid someone else (like a judge) make a decision.
Can I do mediation if there is a court case?
Unless there is a court order that you can’t discuss the case, the answer is yes. Judges like it when people try to solve their own problems.
If you have a court case, and you reach an agreement through mediation, you will file your agreement with the court which can result in dismissal of the case.
Is mediation confidential?
Yes, everything said within mediation is confidential. The other party can’t use your words against you, and the mediator cannot be called to testify.
What are Ms. Kornblum’s specialties?
Ms. Kornblum specializes in Guardianship, Probate, Family and Disability cases. However, she can mediate whatever you would like, as she has experience in many other areas of law.
