Leigh Liaisons: Mediation Services
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a form of “Alternative Dispute Resolution,” which is a fancy way of saying it is an alternative to the traditional model of going to court and letting a judge decide.
Mediation is compromise! It is much less stressful, less time consuming, and often much less expensive. Studies show that all parties are happier and tend to follow agreements reached through mediation better than court orders. The process is a facilitated process based on trainings and studies which move parties toward a resolution. It is not therapy or counseling.
Why spend months arguing, exchanging documents and financial records, hearings, orders, subpoenas, depositions… not mentioning literally tens of thousands of dollars in attorney, legal and court fees when professional MEDIATION services are available, convenient, rapid and very successful? …that is, in a lawsuit there are usually multiple solutions or options that will resolve or settle the case.
Leigh Law applies sensible, realistic, compromise (mediation) principles to all our clients’ cases. This bedrock concept of Leigh Law’s encounters resistance in the legal community because it disrupts most attorneys’ big fee bills which are based on time when cases resolve reasonably and practically early in the case. Traditional mediation is extremely expensive – upwards of $300 an hour! Founder Victoria Leigh thought we could do better and established sister company Leigh Liaisons to offer down to earth affordable mediation services to working Arkansans, just as Leigh Law offers practical, realistic legal services!
