Orlando Mediation Attorneys

central florida mediation experts
Mediation is a process used to resolve disputes either before or after a lawsuit is filed. A neutral third party, usually an attorney experienced in the area or a retired judge, serves as a mediator to help the parties resolve their dispute without the need for a court to determine their issues. If the mediation is successful, then a mediated settlement agreement is executed by the parties. It is possible to resolve some issues at mediation and not others. In that event, the parties can enter into a partial mediation agreement, narrowing the issues that a court must determine. The attorneys at DeWitt Law Firm are trained and skilled in guiding our clients through the mediation process.

Sherri DeWitt is a former certified civil mediator and has acted as a neutral third party in helping many individuals and businesses resolve their disputes through mediation. Please know, however, that the Dewitt Law Firm cannot act as a mediator for the clients that we represent. A mediator must be a neutral disinterested third party. If we represent an interested party, then we do not meet this requirement and cannot serve as a mediator.

Sherri DeWitt was one of the first attorneys in the State of Florida to use the mediation process on behalf of a client in a land use dispute under Florida’s Growth Management Statute. This mediation has been studied by law students throughout the State.

DeWitt Law Firm is experienced in mediating many different substantive areas of law for our clients. These areas include:

Commercial Litigation: Commercial or business disputes often are resolved through mediation because business people know that often it is better to save time and money by settling a case than to go through the expense and aggravation of a trial.

Real Estate Issues: Many different types of real estate issues can be mediated. These include disputes regarding contracts, easements, boundary issues, leases, foreclosures, quiet title and partition actions and issues relating to tax deed sales. The DeWitt Law Firm has extensive experience mediating in these real estate areas. We would welcome the opportunity to help you mediate your real estate related issues

Contract Disputes: The DeWitt Law Firm has successfully mediated numerous contract disputes for our clients. These disputes cover a variety of substantive areas including personal service agreements, construction contracts, contracts for the purchase and sale of a business, agreements between partners or shareholders in a business, and agreements regarding waivers of liability.

Please contact us if you want help in any of these or other areas of mediation.
