In addition to the above, Rosen Resolution is available to help create customized mediation scenarios and fee schedules based upon the parties desires and/or needs (i.e. “express” mediation, mediation over multiple sessions, via phone, FaceTime, etc., or reduced/waived fees.) Contact Rosen Resolution to discuss available options.
Rosen Resolution, PLLC is in the same complex as Jason’s former law firm, Christie Law Group, and its office/conference space is available as a neutral site for any mediation. Jason is a certified rule 39.1 neutral for the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington’s Alternative Dispute Resolution program.
Mediation is more than just a facilitated negotiation. It is the process of helping people communicate effectively to reach solutions they may not otherwise be able to. Sometimes cases are straightforward and resolve with relative ease. But frequently cases involve issues that may not be apparent on the surface. Finding–and addressing–these issues is often necessary to break an impasse or improve the quality of a final agreement.
Effective mediation maximizes the proverbial “win-win”. In many cases, a mediated agreement favors all parties involved in a legal dispute.
Once the parties have agreed to move forward with mediation, my pre-mediation routine includes discussions with all parties as early as possible to ensure the case is postured for productive negotiations and the best possible resolution.
I am a strong proponent of early mediation. The reasons for early mediation are numerous, and the rationale is sound. Quite simply: If you don’t make an attempt to resolve your conflicts at an early stage you may eliminate the possibility of reaching the best solution. However, it is never “too late” to mediate, as many cases are settled “on the courthouse steps” even when the parties may think attempts to negotiate will be futile.
Mediation is an art and, like artists, mediators have unique styles molded by their background, personality and training. Selecting the right mediator for the particular case is important, and there are numerous factors to consider. I fully appreciate the importance of selecting an appropriate mediator, and offer parties the opportunity to discuss their cases with me before moving forward with a commitment to mediate.
