Connecticut Legal Mediator and Divorce Mediation Lawyer

Mediation is not the only option, but often it is the best option, especially in the area of family law. That is what I stress to my clients at the law firm of John C. Valliere, Attorney at Law, in Uncasville, Connecticut. I offer a passion for mediation as I have seen it work to amicably settle cases.

Benefits of Mediation

Divorce mediation promotes an environment of cooperation. The act of coming to the table helps both parties to listen to the other and find a plan that works. Issues are presented and discussed with the goal of finding a mutually-satisfactory resolution. Many times it works. It can ensure a better relationship between the parties. If children are involved, they do not have to get stuck in the middle of a contentious legal matter. Also, there is a bottom line consideration in that divorce mediation is often much less expensive and time consuming than litigation.

I have a certificate from the University of Connecticut Labor Education Center and the Quinnipiac Center on Dispute Resolution as a mediator. I am dedicated to the mediation process and well-trained to make it work in almost any situation. For your sake, and for the sake of your family, you should seriously consider working towards a solution through divorce mediation.

Ongoing Communications

At the law firm of John C. Valliere, Attorney at Law, I pride myself on being accessible to clients and communicating with them throughout the process. Those are the qualities that make for a good legal mediator. Divorce mediation allows the parties to express themselves openly, without confrontation, in order to reach an amicable result. The process stresses communication and understanding instead of contention. Finally, parties are more likely to honor an agreement reached through open negotiation with a trained mediation professional than a decision made by a judge who may not have all the facts.
