Mediation is a process during which an impartial person, the mediator, facilitates communication between the parties to promote reconciliation, settlement or understanding among them. The mediator may suggest ways of resolving the disputes, but may not impose his own judgment on the issues for that of the parties.

Our firm is prepared to stand by you throughout the entire process of your insurance claim, gathering the necessary evidence and negotiating with the insurance company representatives over the value of your claim.

Our firm handles all types of traffic accident cases, including:

There are many possibilities for recovering damages for an auto accident. For example, if the driver was texting on a cell phone, was under the influence of alcohol or was otherwise negligent, these facts can be used to prove that you are not at fault for causing the accident. The same is true in hit and run cases. These tragic situations happen when a driver is responsible for an accident, but flees the scene of the accident without admitting fault, giving their contact information, or providing aid. Our skilled car crash lawyers will conduct an extensive investigation into your accident to hold the negligent driver responsible for their actions, and we will fight tirelessly for the maximum compensation possible.

Assisted reproduction technology (ARTs) has become an increasingly popular method of growing one’s family. Assisted reproduction is a collaborative pregnancy between a surrogate and intended parents. An embryo may be created with:
- The intended father’s sperm
- The intended mother’s egg
- A donor’s sperm
- A donor’s egg
The genetic materials that are used will determine the genetic relationship of the child to the parents and provide us the steps we must take as attorneys in ensuring the assisted reproduction is legally finalized. Generally, we work with “gestational surrogates,” meaning the surrogate does not use her own egg and has no genetic relation to the child.
There are many surrogacy professionals and fertility clinics that can help you find a surrogate or intended parents. Once you have started the medical process, our role as assisted reproduction attorneys begins.
Each assisted reproduction is unique in its own way, based on the genetic relations to the child, where the intended parents live, and where the transfer is taking place. Any errors in the legal process can result in a failure to terminate parental rights of the surrogate or donors, or in a failure to grant parental rights to the intended parents.

Mediation is cost-effective, can be scheduled quickly and it is generally less time-consuming than going to trial.
Mediation usually can be completed in one day and it considers the emotional aspects of a case as well as the legal and financial aspects. Mediation can deescalate animosity between parties engaged in a dispute and often preserves the relationship between the parties. When successful, Mediation yields results that are agreeable to both parties. Mediation is a non-binding, facilitated settlement negotiation. “Non-binding” means that there is no resolution unless the parties agree to the terms of resolution. Any agreement achieved, however, is as binding as any other contract or settlement agreement.
More Than One Way to Mediate
There are at least two schools of thought with respect to the proper role of the mediator. One view is that the mediator should always be non-evaluative, that he or she should facilitate communication but not express opinions or make recommendations. Another view is that the mediator should be evaluative, and should share his or her views, opinions, and evaluation of the case. Bethaney Embry Jones is evaluative, utilizing her judgment, experience, and instincts to assist the parties with their evaluation and re-evaluation.
