Mediation Services

Our lawyers know different ways to resolve disputes

Mediation is just one method of resolving legal arguments and disputes that may otherwise end up in a court of law. While not appropriate in every case, mediation is usually a preferable option for people involved in disputes who would like to avoid courtroom litigation. For mediation services to work properly, all parties involved must understand their legal rights, and be committed to the process in order to reach a favorable outcome.

At Burns, Bryant, Cox, Rockefeller & Durkin, P.A., we believe firmly that mediation is often the right way to resolve a legal dispute. In accordance with these beliefs, we provide mediation services to the residents of New Hampshire.

    What are the mediation laws in New Hampshire?

    Mediation involves working with a neutral third party in order to resolve legal issues in situations such as:

    • Personal injury cases
    • Divorce and parenting cases in order to determine support, division of property, and placement
    • Partnership or business disputes, especially when the parties involved would rather a dispute stay private
    • Disputes related to wills, trusts and estates
    • Breach of contract cases

    Mediation can apply in any situation where two parties are at a disagreement. If they are willing to work through their legal issue and find a comprise, mediation has the possibility to work. However, the outcome of mediation services depends entirely on the willingness of both parties to participate in the process and take it seriously. That's because mediation is often voluntary. People have a right to have their legal disputes heard in court. They have the right to walk away from mediation proceedings at any time. A mediator cannot compel anyone to make a decision. Mediators simply facilitate the process and work to keep the lines of communication open.

    Mediation has many benefits, including the ability to keep information private instead of making it public in court. Mediation can also keep legal disputes confidential, and preserve established relationships between people in businesses or families without resorting to litigation. In addition, mediation often costs significantly less than going to court.
