The probate and estate mediators at McGinn Law understand the emotion surrounding settling a family member’s estate. Our mediators work with all involved parties to develop a solution that not only preserves the value of the estate, but also provides for on-going communication among family members.
At McGinn Law we know family conflicts may intensify when money, control, perceived power, and inheritances are involved. Our mediators work closely with family members in order to create a mutually agreeable informed settlement plan. This mediated settlement plan may be created at the formation of the estate plan, during the estate’s execution, or when one of the parties has passed.
Mediation in probate and estate matters has similar benefits to other areas of mediation:
- Convenient and flexible meeting schedules
- Allows you to be in charge
- Save time and money
- Avoids probate court
- Resolves family disputes
Often in a dispute over an inheritance, a party is motivated, not by what they want, but rather what the party does not want another part to have. A McGinn Law mediator will help the parties identify any underlying motivation and facilitate a discussion to discover solutions.
The mediation process can create an environment to achieve a fair and realistic outcome that is acceptable to the people involved. Estate mediation brings clients with disputes related to the administration of estates together with a view to their jointly working out a mutually satisfactory resolution of the areas in dispute with the help of a neutral mediator.
At the end of the estate planning mediation session you will be provided with well-crafted uniquely tailored informed settlement plan.
