Weber Dispute Resolution offers Private Settlement Conferences to help family lawyers settle more cases.  Our lead neutral, Shawn Weber, has a sterling reputation in San Diego as a solid mediator who can break impasse.  Having volunteered successfully as a Settlement Conference Pro Tem Judge for years, Mr. Weber takes a high-level view of a case to pragmatically find that elusive settlement.  His strong empathic and interpersonal gifts allow Mr. Weber to bring humanity to legal situations.  As a result, he sheds light on each unique client situation to reveal options for settlement.  His methods preserve the long-term interest of the family and empower the client.

In contrast to the Superior Court Mandatory Settlement Conference process where time is sometimes short, a private settlement conference with Weber Dispute Resolution allows the parties more time.  Clients are never rushed.  Lawyers will always have time to thoroughly advise their clients before making decisions.  Additionally, a private settlement conference allows parties to short-circuit the typical acrimony and expense accompanying litigation.happy female attorney after a private settlement conference

What’s more, experience shows that client satisfaction with counsel increases if the parties can reach a settlement.  You know how taxing and bitter a trial can be.  We can help you settle your case quickly so that you don’t need a trial.  Even if you don’t settle all issues, a settlement conference can narrow the issues significantly, which can be the difference between a short cause and a long cause trial.  Let us help you settle the cases that CAN settle, so that you can focus your time preparing for the trials that WON’T settle.
