Question:  What are lawsuits supposed to do?

Answer:  Resolve conflicts and problems.

(Many times, a lawsuit creates more problems than it solves.)

Question:  How can I resolve a conflict without filing a lawsuit?

Answer:  Go through Mediation or Arbitration!


: A settlement of a dispute or conflict by setting up an independent person between two contending parties in order to aid them in the settlement of their dispute.

Lawsuits are expensive and time-consuming ventures.  The vast majority of lawsuits are settled out of court after years of legal proceedings and negotiations between you, your attorney and the "other side".  So, if a settlement is what you want to reach in the first place, then Mediation is the answer.

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution tool Mediation generally allows the disputing parties to resolve their conflicts more quickly and less expensively because a non-biased Mediator is helping them reach a settlement.

Matthew Langhals acts as a Mediator in all kinds of disputes.  Before or after filing a lawsuit, seriously consider contacting the person with which you have a dispute and suggesting Mediation
