 Efficient and Effective Resolutions

Family law issues, or civil disputes involving contracts or personal injury claims, are not necessarily better handled in court. In reality, protecting your rights, or the rights of a loved one, can be done more effectively, and often more economically, thorough mediation or arbitration.

At the Law Offices of Steven A. Mason, P.A., we have more than 30 years of experience handling a wide variety of mediation and arbitration issues. Our lawyer, Steven A. Mason, is a certified family law mediator, circuit civil mediator, county court mediator, and he has also been designated as a qualified arbitrator. With a Master of Science degree in Conflict Analysis and Dispute Resolution, Mr. Mason is well versed in the ways that psychology and sociology influence the art of conflict resolution.

Broward County Certified Mediator

These alternative methods are attractive for those who seek to resolve their dispute quickly and with less contention. Court trials can be lengthy, and quite costly. Mediation and arbitration offer a unique option for individuals wishing to settle their disputes by trying to facilitate an agreement that all parties can agree to.

Mediation: A neutral third party works to assist both sides in an effort to come to a mutually agreed upon resolution.

Arbitration: An arbitrator (similar to a judge) hands down a binding decision through a process that is quicker, and less formal than a traditional trial.

We understand that you may be unsure of what direction to take your current legal disagreement. When you call our Hollywood, Florida, office, you will have the opportunity to speak directly with an attorney who will be able to guide you through with confidence and skill. Our No. 1 goal is to attain the best possible outcome to your case.
