Mediation is a method to decide your own destiny prior to, during, or after your own law suit. It is a process encouraged by the Florida courts, and in many cases ordered by the Florida courts. It is where you and your attorney go into a room with the party on the other side of the lawsuit, and discuss your disagreement in front of a neutral mediator. This mediator then tries to encourage each side as close as possible to a middle ground to resolve the matter that day, without further legal expense, and to reduce the risk of one side losing everything.
Senior Counsel, Michael C. Klasfeld, Esq., is certified by the Supreme Court of Florida to be such a mediator in Circuit Court matters. While exceptions exist, Circuit Court matters are usually any matter in which the value of the controversy is greater then $15,000.00.
