Mediation And Bankruptcy

While many people associate mediation with family law, it can also be used in bankruptcy and insolvency settings. Mediation is an alternative to the traditional, confrontational negotiation and courtroom system. It works by having a neutral third-party mediator oversee the negotiation process, offer their interpretation of the issues holding up an agreement, relay messages between the parties and help draft a settlement agreement. The mediator generally is someone with extensive experience in bankruptcy law, often an attorney or retired judge.

Among other things, mediation can bring creditors and debtors together to work out a solution faster, more cheaply and with less rancor than in bankruptcy court. Creditors often walk away with a larger portion of what they are owed and a smaller bill for attorney fees. Along with their bankruptcy practice, our attorneys are experienced and skilled mediators. They can help you decide whether to pursue bankruptcy mediation, prepare you for the session and represent you there.
