A consulting attorney is an invaluable tool, especially for those who prefer to remain self-represented or for those are currently proceeding through mediation through another firm.
A GREAT mediation firm will encourage individuals to seek independent legal advice, so that the process will be smooth-sailing. Being prepared will only help you in the long run, whether that's in court or in mediation.
Being prepared will also save you a lot of time, energy, and money!
