Mediation Is Often A Better Way Forward

The courtroom is not always the best forum to resolve disputes. Litigation is stressful, spendy and unpredictable.

Mediation, however, gives you more control over the outcome and is usually quicker and less expensive than litigation. We are attorneys Daniel Goodge and Daniel Forrester. We are Rule 31 mediators who are trained and skilled in helping parties reach amicable and practical resolutions to complex disputes.

We are experienced in mediating divorce settlements, child custody disputes, breach of contract, probate conflicts and other challenges, including the sensitive issue of helping families work through the aftermath of domestic violence. We invite you to explore whether mediation is the right path for your situation.

If mediation is not an option or you have already exhausted peaceful negotiation opportunities, we are also experienced trial lawyers who are well-equipped to represent you in contested court proceedings.

We Will Aim To Achieve The Right Solution To Your Legal Issue

When you hire our law firm to handle your legal case, you will gain access to knowledgeable advocates who will be with you through every step of the legal process.
