The help you need to achieve the settlement you want.

"Litigation is a poor way to make money, and the construction companies hurt their relations with clients when they are constantly suing people."
-Barbara Ashley Phillips, The Mediation Field Guide

Parties embroiled in a dispute increasingly use mediation as their preferred tool for dispute resolution because it's quick, inexpensive, and lets them maintain control.
