MEDIATION ATTORNEYS IN LOS ANGELES
Mr. El Dabe and Mr. Ritter have mediated cases on a volunteer basis in Los Angeles and Orange County. Due to their experience and reputation, they areregularly called upon by trial lawyers, plaintiffs-lawyers and defense-lawyers alike, to mediate cases. They have also been called upon by the office of the Los Angeles Superior Court to serve as voluntary settlement officers. Local courts, overburdened with filing and cases set for trial, promote mediation and voluntary settlement conferences as a method of settling cases before trial.
Mediation, when compared to a court trial or jury trial is:
Many cases are settled in a mediation setting. Our mediation attorneys in Los Angeles encourage both sides and their counsel coming together and exchanging information confidentially, in an effort to ascertain the viability of the merits of their cases, with the hope of a settlement.
Mediation can benefit the litigant’s toes; a settled case will avoid the protracted time and expense of a trial and litigants can avoid the emotional toll of trial. The neutral party in the mediation is often a retired judge or experienced lawyer, whose goal is to bring all sides closer to an agreement on the case, or in some cases, a specific issue. During mediation, all sides get an opportunity to evaluate witnesses, hear the evidence, obtain a better understanding of the arguments, and (attempt to) predict the results of the trial.
Mediation or settlement conference can take place either before or after a lawsuit is filed, which can be done with the help of a Los Angeles mediation lawyer. Mediation can also take place over several days if they involve multiple complex issues or a large number of parties.
Mr. El Dabe and Mr. Ritter mediate cases regularly in the Southern California area. If you are interested in obtaining the services of Mr. El Dabe or Mr. Ritter as a mediator, please contact El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers.
