Mediation and Dispute Resolution
Did you know that spouses who take their divorce cases all the way through trial in Utah typically spend a minimum of $25,000 on legal fees and costs? It is not uncommon for parties combined to spend well over $100,000 in fees and costs. Unfortunately this is sometimes necessary because one or both parties has unreasonable expectations or demands. The only way to resolve them is to go to trial. But in cases where divorcing spouses are willing to work with each other to reach a custom-crafted, comprehensive resolution, a skilled neutral mediator can make the difference between success and failure. Utah Mediator Aaron Drake has been a student of, professor of (at the U.S. Air Force Academy), and practitioner of "Appropriate/Alternative Dispute Resolution," including negotiation and mediation, since law school.
Aaron is available to handle Utah divorce mediation in cases where the parties are represented by their own attorneys or in cases where the parties have no attorney and simply wish to work with an objective, experienced, skilled mediator who can guide them through the process, draft the required documents, file the documents in court, and move the parties on with their lives as efficiently and fairly as possible.
