Clients who are interested in mediation as a way of resolving their divorce or family law dispute will find qualified representation at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC.

Each partner at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed is a qualified mediator pursuant to New Jersey Court Rule 1:40.
Confidential, Cost-Effective Approach to Dispute Resolution
During mediation, a neutral third party family law attorney helps clients reach a negotiated settlement that is satisfactory to both parties. The mediator will work with both parties to identify obstacles that are preventing a settlement and help clients overcome them. In complex and high net worth cases experts such as accountants with a background in family law may also serve as mediators or assist in mediation. A mediator does not represent the clients and cannot force either party to enter into an agreement or accept a resolution.
Clients often like mediation because it is:
- Confidential: A trial or court hearing is often held in a courtroom that is open to the public, but a mediation session usually occurs in a private office with private discussions. Additionally, all communication and documentation exchanged during mediation is confidential and cannot be used as evidence, if a case proceeds to litigation.
- Cost-effective: Settling a case through mediation can help avoid a protracted, expensive, and often emotionally draining litigation.
- Empowering: During mediation, control over the terms of the resolution remain with the parties. During litigation, a judge may issue decisions and orders that neither party likes.
Our lawyers have been involved in many mediations. The three partners at our law firm are qualified mediators pursuant to New Jersey Court Rule 1:40, meaning they are permitted to mediate a divorce under the New Jersey Rules of Court. This qualification allows our attorneys to serve as independent mediators and gives them the knowledge and understanding to help clients reach the core issues of their disputes in a reasonable manner.
Mediation is one of several approaches that the attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC may employ to help clients resolve a family law dispute. The client’s family dynamics, goals, as well as the needs of each case will determine whether mediation, negotiation, collaborative law or another approach is appropriate.
