Having a dispute with an employer, a co-parent, a company, or a business partner comes with plenty of headaches without involving the stress of a long, expensive legal trial. You already feel angry, sad, and overwhelmed. Adding the hostile nature of a trial to the mix can fan the flames and rub salt into the wound. 

Nobody understands your circumstances or feelings like you do. Handing over your fate to a judge – a stranger – is taking a nerve-racking gamble on walking away with nothing. Or even worse…being indebted to the party who caused your suffering. With the mediation attorneys at McCutchen and McLean, you can put your fate in the right hands. Yours.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is an informal, confidential process in which both parties in a dispute mutually select a mediator to serve as an impartial third party, facilitating the negotiation of a potential settlement. This alternative dispute resolution offers you the opportunity to arrange a settlement with creative solutions, often resulting in a mutually beneficial outcome. In other words, everyone wins.

A Mediator Can Help You Settle Your Dispute…

  • While remaining unbiased
  • By finding common ground, keeping animosity at bay
  • While allowing you to advocate for yourself
  • Without coercion or pressure

By choosing mediation, you can find common ground without resorting to an antagonizing court case where everyone loses. The process allows you to save time, money, and sanity while protecting your decision-making power. The best part is, you get to keep your right to a trial. So, in the worst-case scenario, you walk away without having come to an agreement.

I used Robin McLean as an attorney to secure a divorce about 20 months ago. I found her to be efficient, reasonably priced, and very well skilled. I was completely happy with her work. She did what she said. Since that time, I needed additional help with paperwork and she responded promptly and to my complete satisfaction. I highly recommend Robin as an attorney.
