Description of Practice

Litigation is expensive and time consuming, which is why many people prefer to settle disputes outside of the courtroom. Putting oneself at the mercy of a judge or jury that is not completely familiar with a situation can result in everyone feeling unhappy with the outcome.

In mediation, disputing parties save time and money by resolving the issue on their own. They are guided by a third-party neutral arbitrator and if they so choose, represented by an attorney. Additional experts can be brought in for consultation on serious legal matters. Mediation is one of the most effective and efficient ways to settle legal disputes in Chicago, IL. Contact Travis Maisel today at (312) 553-8642. He can help you, regardless of the stage of your dispute: whether you are ready to discuss settlement or you are just starting to look for an affordable yet cost effective alternative to litigation.
