Mediation is an alternative to going to court. David Carlton is a certified civil court mediator. A mediator is not a judge and does not make any decisions for the parties. Instead, the mediator is a neutral third-party who is formally trained to identify and understand legal issues and to facilitate and to structure negotiations between the parties. A skilled mediator can help parties move past their conflict and determine for themselves what is important and, ultimately, the outcome of their situation. David Carlton is available to serve as a mediator in Florida.
