In the mediation process, you work with a neutral third party that helps you identify ways to resolve your disputes without the cost and expense of litigation. The mediator does not issue a ruling for you, but helps you work with the other party to find a mutually beneficial solution.

The benefits of the mediation process are many. First, you actively participate in formulating the solution, rather than relying on rulings from a judge or jury. The process can be quickly scheduled and can often be completed in a short period of time. Because you participate in the process, and because you are working toward mutually acceptable solutions, mediated settlements are often less stressful and easier to enforce than rulings. The mediation process frequently saves you a lot of money as well. Donna Solomon is a recognized leader in arbitration and mediation in South Florida, serving West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and beyond.


Binding arbitration can also help you save money and resolve your dispute more quickly. In an arbitration proceeding, you present your case to a legal expert who will render a decision. Donna Solomon can serve aaaa logos the arbitrator of your dispute or represent you as counsel in an arbitration proceeding.
