Serving as a neutral, Joseph Mona has successfully mediated many complex and contentious estate and trust disputes in the past, and continues to mediate such cases in the Orange County Probate Court.
Due to the high level of emotion involved in trust & estate disputes, mediation can be very effective in resolving such cases. Since many trust and estate disputes have as their source poor communication, mediation has proven very effective in the right circumstances.
Mediation is a completely separate skill set from litigation or planning. The typical law school curriculum provides virtually no mediation training to prospective attorneys. As a result, attorneys need to acquire specialized mediation training after their law school education.
Joseph Mona has received specialized mediation training from the Straus Institute For Dispute Resolution, which is universally considered some of the best mediation training in the country.
