Seeking A Fair Settlement Out Of Court?

Protecting Your Interests With Strategic Mediation

Divorce mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can be useful tools to save time and money in divorce. Mediation is a nonadversarial process in which parties negotiate out of court to resolve disputes and reach a settlement. If successful, you can avoid the costs and stress of litigation.

However, simply engaging in mediation will not necessarily result in a resolution that meets your legal and financial needs. It requires knowledge of the process and an ability to negotiate from a position of strength.

Pragmatic, Experienced Negotiation For Complex Divorce

William C. Gentry, Attorney at Law, can help you enter into mediation with a realistic outlook and a greater probability of obtaining your desired results. Successful mediation requires a good mediator and the ability to foresee potential obstacles. Bill Gentry was engaging in mediation before Cobb County first began its mandatory program back in 1993. He knows local mediators who can best facilitate reaching a just settlement for your divorce. Importantly, his knowledge of local courts and judges can help him anticipate what the court would consider a reasonable outcome. If the opposing party's positions differ from settlements and outcomes reached in past similar situations, Mr. Gentry will clearly and honestly guide you in taking your next appropriate steps.

From Mediation To Litigation

Part of engaging in mediation is understanding that if you don't reach a resolution, you need to pursue a better result through litigation. With Mr. Gentry, you can rely on a well-respected trial lawyer who has spent countless hours in court. If the other side does not engage in a good-faith effort to resolve disputes, you have an aggressive, knowledgeable lawyer on your side who is dedicated to achieving your goals, in or out of court.

This means we can negotiate aggressively to get a fair resolution, knowing that the knowledge and skill honed from 30 years of practicing divorce law in Cobb County is behind you.
