Before scheduling a mediation, please fill out a pre-mediation intake form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All information provided is confidential and any information provided not subject to a subpoena by a court, unless it is otherwise discoverable in the normal course of discovery.
We should expect the lawyer representing a client to be prepared prior to going to mediation. And preparing the mediator for mediation is also important. But just as important, if not more, is making sure you as a client or as an unrepresented party is prepared. The Preparing Confidential Position Statement document will give you insight into preparing a statement for the mediator prior to mediation and will also provide the party at mediation to delve deeper into and understand the many emotional and psychological issues driving the dispute and what the party truly wants to resolve the dispute.
We encourage all parties to a dispute whether in litigation or pre-litigation to consult with a lawyer before resolving a dispute. The same holds true for parties to a dispute who choose mediation as the alternate dispute resolution to resolve a dispute. If you choose to not be represented by legal counsel at a mediation scheduled with Wernick Law Group, please download, fill out, sign, and make sure you bring the Pre Se Declaration at Mediation Form to mediation.
