Negotiation And Resolution In A Private, Non-Confrontational Setting
Mediation is a confidential dispute resolution forum that provides numerous advantages over litigation, including the ability to maintain the parties' privacy; avoid the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation; and devise creative solutions that satisfy unusual needs and circumstances. It is also a valuable way to minimize the emotional burden of divorce and to preserve fragile family relationships.
At The Law Offices of Dorie A. Rogers, APC, we assist clients in Orange County and Riverside County, California, in resolving divorce and post-divorce issues through mediation. Backed by more than 30 years of experience and a record of success, our attorneys can act as neutral mediators to facilitate the mediation process, or we can represent individuals who need advice, information and counsel before and after the mediation session.

The Mediation Process
In mediation, both parties work with a neutral mediator to negotiate an amicable settlement in a strictly confidential setting. The mediator does not represent either party and does not make any final decision in the matter. His or her role is to facilitate discussion and to assist the parties in coming to a resolution, usually by sending offers of settlement back and forth between the parties.
While neither spouse can have an attorney present during the mediation, it is often beneficial for each to consult with a lawyer before and after the mediation session. An experienced attorney can help you strategize prior to the mediation, and he or she can review the mediated settlement to ensure that your rights and interests are protected prior to finalization of the agreement.
Our firm founder, Dorie A. Rogers, is certified as a family law specialist by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, a certification bestowed on a small percentage of California family law attorneys who have completed a rigorous certification process and demonstrated the highest standards of legal competence. She has decades of experience helping clients reach mediated settlements that provide the entire family with a sense of peace and stability.
