Traditionally, family, interpersonal and business legal conflicts have been resolved in one of two ways: through negotiations out of court or by lawsuits in court.
While negotiations can yield positive results, consensus can often be difficult to reach, especially when each party may harbor resentments against the other and each party's respective attorneys have been trained to treat the other as an adversary.
Litigation — although it may be the stuff of Hollywood movies and TV dramas, and may seem emotionally satisfying at the outset — is in actuality an expensive and time-consuming last resort that few would choose if they had other viable options.
