When you chose to go to court, you ask a stranger to determine the outcome of your case instead of making your own decisions by agreement. In court, a stranger makes a decision on your behalf after hearing the arguments that you and the other side make against each other. At A to Z Law Erie, we firmly believe that it is better to resolve your issues outside of court, where you get to maintain more control over the outcome as well as the process. Solving issues outside of court gives you the opportunity to focus on what is most important to you and your family, and to reach your own decisions by agreement. By working toward agreement, you and the other party both get the chance to resolve conflict underlying the issues, which can lead to long-term solutions to problems. A and Z are professional problem solvers, here to help you resolve your issues with dignity and respect, using processes that are specifically designed to make peacemaking possible.
