Mediation is a way to resolve a dispute that involves the help of a third party. The independent party helps the parties trough an interest based process. By managing effective communication, and helping the parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution.

The collaborative process is not a “battle”; rather it is a streamlined process for resolution that is efficient and settlement focused. Where parties are generally dissatisfied by a Court Order imposed upon them by a Judge, in the collaborative setting, parties work toward a settlement that makes sense to them.
We understand that this is a difficult time. We are here to guide you through the process.

Aubrey McFarlane, Law Clerk
From our Initial meeting I was impressed with both Abiola Adeusi’s professionalism and understanding of my requirements. As my case continued I was updated regularly and given clear and concise direction while maintaining a high degree of compassion and support. Abiola’s empathy and patience is to be commended. In my view Abiola Adeusi regularly went above and beyond what was required. It is without hesitation or reservation that I recommend Abiola Adeusi’s legal services.
