To inquire about our mediation services, please fill out the form. This is the easiest way to start the process and avoids any perceived conflict of interest arising from one of the parties feeling like the other party contacted us first and thus has some sort of advantage. We can assure you that Mr. Bishop does not care which party contacted us first regarding mediation and assures you that his proceedings are always neutral. We have intentionally kept the following Mediation Inquiry Form very generic so that parties do not provide their positions or arguments until the mediation itself.
Once we receive your Mediation Inquiry Form, we will run a conflict check to confirm that neither Mr. Bishop or any of the other attorneys in the Bishop Law office firm have consulted with or represented either party in the past. Assuming there is no conflict, we will then contact both parties at the same time (i.e. generally by joint email) to schedule the introductory session. If you feel that you will want to start the mediation right away, we can generally schedule your mediation session to start immediately after the free introductory session.
Although we can discuss procedural matters such as scheduling with you, we cannot discuss the facts of your case and your individual positions outside of the other party’s presence before the mediation and both parties must be present during the initial consultation.
If you have any questions or problems regarding the Mediation Inquiry Form, or if you would like to schedule your consultation over the phone, please call Carolyn at 602-930-4485.
We look forward to helping you get on with your lives as soon as possible AND with minimal stress and expense.
