Sometimes legal disputes seem so intractable that litigation through trial appears to be the only option. However, skilled mediators like ours can break through the logjam to reach a successful resolution, saving the parties from expending significant time, energy and resources.

Our mediation attorneys have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in lawsuits, administrative forums, arbitrations and mediations. We use that unique perspective to craft options, and temper unreasonable expectations. Decades of experience have taught us that parties' needs and goals are not necessarily legal. We pride ourselves on discerning the real concerns of the parties, and thinking of creative ways to meet them.

We come to each mediation with a personalized approach tailored to each case and the specific parties involved. Our attorneys are objective and open-minded, and through patience and diligence, help the parties reach their goals.

We are certified mediators who, in addition to private mediation, sit on state and federal mediation panels. Our mediators have served as neutrals in the following areas of law: labor & employment; commercial and business disputes; bankruptcy; real estate; trusts & estates; personal injury; securities; and general litigation. Whether you are already in litigation, have the potential for litigation, or would just benefit from the guidance of an impartial third party, we can help you to negotiate a resolution.

SWLG now offers virtual mediation using varying methods such as written submissions, emails, telephone conferencing and video conferencing.  Our virtual mediation service allows flexibility in scheduling, and most importantly in these times, allows the parties and their counsel to be in separate locations.
