When you are choosing a mediator in Pennsylvania, be sure to retain the services of one who specializes in whatever the focus of your dispute is, be it trust, estate, or family business.
It’s preferable to choose a mediator who is both a proven expert in dispute resolution as well as the area of your concern, and although these mediators are likely to charge a higher daily fee for handling an estate dispute, they may be able to come to a mutually agreeable conclusion in less time or uncover a compromise or solution that works to everyone’s collective advantage.
When the estate dispute involves a significant amount of money in property or assets, and particularly when no will or pre-established agreement exists, the investment in dispute resolution services may prove well worth the cost of paying a higher rate for a more experienced mediator.
In most cases, mediation is voluntary, so you have the opportunity to shop around for the right mediator before you retain any services, and the best way to familiarize yourself with a mediator is to conduct an interview, or consultation, with him or her. These are often done over the phone with both parties and give everyone an opportunity to equally vet the mediator and determine whether or not he or she is right for the estate dispute.
When both parties come to an agreement on choosing a mediator, you will have taken the first crucial step toward avoiding costly formal litigation and resolving your dispute.
