Family lawyers should embrace early mediation as a creative tool that makes them more attractive to clients and helps them cast a net for a wider client base. Early mediation is an alternative methodology to assist parties in resolving their conflicts. It puts in place a process for cooperative dispute resolution that, once established, can ease tension and cost for a divorcing family.

As disputes diminish and divorcing parents’ relationships are preserved, client satisfaction will improve, which is vital for an attorney’s business model. Attorneys are missing the modest means market that is going it alone. To recapture this market, attorneys can and should offer the efficient and economical pathway of early mediation to attract a disappearing client base.
