The Law Office of Daniel Scott is focused on the mediation of the many issues that arise when a couple chooses to end their marriage.
Why mediate? It s simply better than litigation. It s generally faster and less stressful, and usually at a fraction of the price. It allows the parties to arrive at custom-tailored solutions to thorny problems involving the division of property, finances and parenting plans. It helps them reach agreements that are more likely to be honored as they move forward because it is they, and not the courts, who chose them. And especially in the intensely personal area of family practice, it allows and encourages the parties to cooperate rather than fight even in cases where cooperation seems impossible.
If you hire boxers to settle a dispute, the chances are there will be punches thrown. Too often divorcing couples even those hoping to be amicable lawyer up early in the process and find themselves subjected to warped incentives that can lead them to spend far too much and suffer unnecessary grief and anger. Mediation minimizes the incentives that can cause litigation to spiral out of control, and provides a safe and neutral space for the parties to find solutions in a manner that is quicker, more affordable, and less painful for them and their children.
