"During mediation parties may choose to be represented by an attorney. Mediators may not give legal advice or interpret the law. They can refer parties to impartial outside experts in legal, financial, or other fields to address specific questions or issues that might arise. If parties arrive at a mutually satisfactory resolution, mediators may assist in drafting Memorandums of Understanding, comprised of the terms to which the parties have agreed. If mediation is unsuccessful and an agreement cannot be reached, parties may still pursue all legal remedies, including private lawsuits." -The MAC
Boylan Mediation will work with the counsel of each party in counsels offices or in our West Arvada Office. Mediation can be set up in two different ways. The mediator can have all parties together or counsel and clients can choose to separate and use the settlement facilitation model.
