Following the outcome of a trial, the party who lost may dispute the result and continue legal action through an appeal. Filing an appeal does not necessarily mean that the case will be briefed and argued to the appellate courts. Many cases involving civil matters and domestic relations are selected for appellate court mediation. If you agree to a settlement in mediation, your appeal will end and you will be saved attorney fees and uncertainty. However, a mediator cannot force you to settle your case. In the end you always have the final decision on any settlement.
At Jensen & Leiberan, our appellate attorney represents clients in cases selected for appellate court mediation. She also has extensive experience working as a mediator herself within the appellate court mediation program. We provide aggressive representation backed up by thorough research to assess the merits of your appeal to give you the best chance to settle your case.
If your appeals case was selected for appellate court mediation, our appellate attorney can be your best resource and advocate. For help, contact us at 503-446-2521.
If your case is selected for Court of Appeals mediation, you do not necessarily have to go through that process if you believe that mediation is a waste of time. If you come to us for representation at appellate court mediation, we will help you determine whether mediation is appropriate or will be merely a time-wasting endeavor.
If, with our help, you decide that mediation has no real chance of resulting in a settlement in your case, we work hard to have your case pulled from the mediation process. If your case is not selected for the mediation program and you believe that settlement is possible, we will work hard to have the case referred to mediation.
