Mediation Lawyers in Alabama

Mediation is a voluntary and private process in which a mediator facilitates negotiation and resolution of the parties’ dispute, prior to or during court involvement. Mediation is a collaborative and non-combative approach to legal problem solving. In mediation, the parties work together to negotiate a solution to their legal issue. A neutral third party serves as a mediator to:

  • Encourage both parties to develop a realistic sense of their case
  • Clarify the distance between the opposing parties
  • Bridge the gap between the opposing parties

At Dothan Law Group, our mediation attorneys are prepared to represent your interests in all stages of your case and will work with you to determine the best strategy for your situation. During mediation, we will carefully listen to each party and assist in facilitating a settlement in a comfortable informal, non-confrontational setting.
