Description of Practice

Welcome to Pathways Mediation. With Courts facing growing caseloads and staff cutbacks, and given the spiraling costs of Litigation in both time and financial resources, Mediation has increasingly become the preferred method of resolving legal disputes. At Pathways Mediation we believe that Mediation offers an opportunity for individuals to reach fair and lasting solutions of cases through an informal and safe process which ensures consideration of the issues of particular concern to each side, without the substantial costs and risks associated with Litigation. Pathways Mediation is a professional Mediation service provided by Attorney Francis F. Lane, of Lane Law Offices located in Exeter, New Hampshire. Attorney Lane has over 19 years experience serving as a Mediator for the New Hampshire Superior Court in a broad range of controversies, and was certified by the New Hampshire State Mediation Board as a Family Mediator in 2009. As a result of the specialized training, as well as the extensive experience Attorney Lane has gained over the years he is able to offer both innovative and effective approaches to resolving legal disputes. Although we cannot change the past, through Mediation we can assist you in reaching an appropriate settlement of your case, and help shape your future in a way that best serves your particular needs and interests.
