If you are looking for a mediator to assist you and your spouse in negotiating a fair resolution of your Arizona divorce case, Thomas Law Office has attorneys who are experienced at assisting others resolve their disputes in a professional, businesslike manner. Although many of our cases are full-blown battles that result in trials, we also handle many cases in which settlement is obtained in a successful way for our Arizona divorce and custody clients. The cost of mediation is usually far less than the cost of battling your spouse through a lengthy court process. In mediation, you have more privacy and control over your fate. Indeed, parties who are able to cooperate through their disagreements in order to reach a settlement are able to obtain far more flexible and creative agreements than an Arizona trial judge could provide. This is because a trial judge in an Arizona divorce case is constrained by certain statutes and higher court rulings that you can freely and legally choose to ignore when you reach agreements prior to trial.
Ronald V. Thomas has extensive experience as Arizona divorce lawyer, both in trials and mediations. Furthermore, Mr. Thomas is a Judge Pro Tempore of the Maricopa County Superior Court. Mr. Thomas knows firsthand the techniques that can be employed to get people to focus on solutions rather than fighting. Divorce mediation is usually fast and efficient, provided that both parties are committed to making it work. On the other hand, if you know that mediation is going to be a waste of time and money, you can instead hire Mr. Thomas to fight for you in court. There are some people who just are not capable of being reasonable, even when it’s in their own self-interest. These stubborn types see any kind of compromise as weakness and will not do something unless they are court-ordered to do it, and even then they do it grudgingly. In those situations, do not waste your time and money on mediation but rather focus on gathering evidence, preparing your case with your Arizona divorce lawyer, and holding your opponent’s feet to the fire in the courtroom.
