TOPIC: Six Suggestions for Virtual Mediation Success

Lisbeth Bulmash and Isaac Shutt will discuss mediation in probate, guardianship and estate matters.  In this age of COVID-19, virtual mediations are a safe way to conduct the mediation without endangering you or your client.  They will share suggestions for successful virtual mediations from the perspective of an experienced mediator and a probate attorney who litigates and mediates.  With most contested probate cases heading to mediation before trial, this presentation provides tactics on how to dramatically increase the likelihood that you will reach your mediation goals.
