Encinitas Trust & Estate Mediation Lawyer
Sometimes, litigation is the only way to resolve a difficult trust and estate matter. However, mediation through a third party is an alternative that you may want to try first. A mediator can help find common ground, and litigation remains an option if no agreement can be reached in mediation.
If you're trying to resolve a trust and estate dispute and want to consider mediation, our Encinitas lawyers can help guide you. It ’s an option that is not only more cost-effective than litigation, but it’s more private and less adversarial.Learn More About Mediation
