Better Experience for Clients than a Mandatory Settlement Conference

In contrast to the Superior Court Mandatory Settlement Conference process where time with the temporary judge is sometimes short, a private settlement conference with Weber Dispute Resolution allows the parties more time. Clients are never rushed. Mediation confidentiality ensures that personal information is kept private. Lawyers will always have opportunity 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 mediated agreement.  You know how taxing and bitter the courtroom 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.
