Pittsburgh Mediation Group

Estate and Elder Law

The informal nature of mediation is appealing to families, seniors and care providers. The environment of a professional mediation process as an alternative to litigation helps strengthen relationships. Senior issues tend to be a complex mix of legal, health and generational issues.  Our mediation process includes: an opportunity to participate in a confidential set of discussions; the safety of having a balance of power as issues are clarified; respecting the parties personal histories and differences; and the protection from signing away legal rights. The Pittsburgh Mediation Group has put together a team concept: along with the mediator, an Elder Law Attorney & a Geriatric Social Worker can be "on-call" & available to give clarity about legal guidelines & options and their financial costs.
