Resolving Trust and Estate Disputes Through Alternative Dispute Resolution
Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP offers a wide variety of services related to all forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation, arbitration, judge pro tem, and service as a court-appointed referee from a Santa Clara Mediation & Arbitration Attorney.
ADR services are available to parties who have been unable to resolve trust and estate-related disputes. Resolution assistance is usually available at any stage of a dispute, including prior to the initiation of litigation. An out-of-court resolution is generally a cost-effective route for resolving a dispute.
We provide mediation and arbitration services to clients throughout Fremont, Walnut Creek, Danville, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Francisco, and other counties.
Mediation is a confidential and voluntary form of alternative dispute resolution. The confidentiality of the process allows the parties to openly discuss difficult issues and forge a mutually agreed-upon resolution, rather than have one imposed on them by the court. The scope of mediation is broader and more flexible than a trial. Our mediation clients receive the benefit of a fair process sensitive to the personalities and goals present in each unique situation, combined with an aggressive and creative problem-solving approach to even the most difficult and emotionally charged circumstances. Mediations handled by Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP result in a signed settlement agreement in approximately 90 percent of the cases we handle.
Other Forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution
When mediation is not the right choice, a full range of alternative forms of binding dispute resolution are available. Our firm ensures thorough and competent review of the issues, followed by an unbiased determination of a reasonable probability of a result.
ADR services are available at the offices of Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP in San Jose or Pleasanton, or at another off-site location at the agreement of the attorney and the parties. Examples of issues our firm has settled using ADR include:
