Bay Area Elder Mediation

Richard Schwachter

If your family is fighting over issues relating to your senior parents, mediation may be the answer. It can keep your family from resorting to expensive court proceedings. Mediation can also be an effective way to have a "family meeting" addressing care giving issues before there is a crisis. It can also address sensitive estate planning issues before an attorney finalizes a plan. Mediation is private, confidential and completely voluntary. Meetings are informal and are held in locations which meet the family's needs, including private homes, mediators' offices and senior living facilities.

If your family members reside in different states (countries) call us to find out if the mediation can be done online!
