Mediation Myths: My Case Won't Settle at Mediation

Multiple studies have shown that the vast majority of parties who mediate reach an agreement that settles all of the issues raised by their case. Very few cases are tried before a Judge. Only about 15% of all family law cases are tried before Judge. At the MSW Mediation Center, we have mediated many difficult cases. Often attorneys and Judges specifically recommend us as a mediator for highly contested. We have a settlement rate in excess of 90%. Let us help you settle your case.

Mira Should Be Your Mediator

In Florida, the requirements to become a Certified Family Law Mediator are minimal. Anyone who possesses a college degree in any subject, completes a 30-hour training program, and participates in a brief mentorship can become a Certified Family Law Mediator. These minimal requirements often lead to individuals being certified as family law mediators, who have very limited experience with the Court system and/or with the issues presented in most family law cases.

Inadequately trained and insufficiently experienced mediators, although well-intentioned, can unknowingly do more harm than good. These mediators frequently draft agreements that are impossible to perform, are incomplete, and/or ambiguous. A poorly drafted agreement causes confusion, frustrates the parties, and leads to future litigation.

As an experienced attorney, I have handled hundreds, if not thousands, of family law cases. I have witnessed, first-hand, the legal and emotional impact of a family law case. With that experience, I am better explain, in general terms, the law to the parties. I, also, understand the emotional turmoil often accompanying a family law case and can suggest effective ways to reduce this stress and ways in which the parties can more respectfully communicate.

In my capacity as an attorney, I have drafted hundreds of settlement agreements from the very complicated to the most basic. As your mediator, I draw upon that experience to help prepare agreements that are clear, concise and easily understood.
