Frequently, Mr. Hoffman is retained to offer specialized, Pre-Suit Mediation solutions. Pre-Suit Mediation has been uniquely demonstrated to offer an array of advantages over litigation and post-filing mediation.
It is voluntary and private, cost effective and expeditious. Without the fear of adverse publicity or public disclosure that can occur in publicly filed proceedings, Pre-Suit Mediation offers a heightened level of confidentiality at a point in time that better enables and actually fosters settlement.
Particularly in family disputes (often headed towards trust and/or estate litigation), conflict among family members present unique challenges. Family disagreements are complex and deep seated. If implemented early in the process, without the added burden of litigation tactics and expenses, Pre-Suit Mediation has allowed these cases to more readily resolve on a fair, amicable and more equitable basis.
