Less Expense, More Control | Advantages of Retaining Our Maryland Divorce Settlement Law Firm
As with a negotiation, any collaborative or mediated result is likely to cost exponentially less in time and resources than a traditional lawsuit. This is because litigation generally takes months to complete and can result in expensive legal fees and court costs. Further, because a judge makes the decisions in litigation, neither party has control over the outcome.
Allowing a trained and experienced attorney from The Mediation Center to negotiate on your behalf in the collaborative process, or a trained and experienced mediator to assist in resolving your dispute, can take less time, cost less money and provide both parties more control than in a lawsuit.
Whichever method is best for resolving your conflict, our law office seeks to pursue it in a way that best meets your needs while saving you money and preserving your control.
