Gun violence following mediation

Mediation is usually a place where conflict is resolved.   We are saddened to hear that three people are dead after a man shot a corporate attorney and his client following a mediation session Wednesday in Phoenix.  The man, who later committed suicide, was allegedly  litigious and had anger-management issues.

Dr. Viktor Frankl, who wrote ”Man’s Search for Meaning,” promoted the theory that the search for value and meaning in the circumstances of one’s life was the key to psychological well-being.  He suggested that despair can be overcome by discovering meaning in life, which in turn provides the will and strength to endure difficult times.   He shared that no matter what, where or how, we retain, ”the last of the human freedoms, to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Please choose peace, do not be discouraged by setbacks or failure, and don’t be afraid to use mediation to resolve conflict.

Thinking about divorce? Ask an experienced Worcester Divorce Attorney if divorce mediation is right for you.

If you made it through the holidays thinking “never again” you may be ready to divorce. Think before you act. You could initiate an expensive, litigious and stressful process or you could consider divorce mediation.

You fell in love, got married, and maybe you had kids. Getting divorced may not be easy, but why make it harder or more expensive than it has to be.

Try mediation before going to court.

Divorce Mediation can be faster, cheaper and less stressful than traditional representation. The cost to divorce with attorneys and multiple court appearances can become enormous.

You have nothing to lose by using mediation; it’s simpler, quicker and makes better outcomes. You stay in control of the divorce mediation, it’s confidential and private.

International mediation contest begins at National Law Institute University

The Times of India | Bhopal

 The writer has posted comments on this articleTNN | Oct 13, 2012, 03.20AM IST

BHOPAL: Beginning Saturday, 32 teams from 29 colleges of India and abroad will compete for top honours at the 2nd international mediation competition at the National Law Institute University, (NLIU) Bhopal. The three-day competition will end on Oct 14.

The competition was inaugurated on Friday.  It is the second consecutive year when the NLIU, Bhopal is hosting the event.  It is hosted in association with International Academy Alternative Dispute Resolution (INADR), a leading international organization on mediation.  As part of this association, INADR holds a capsule training session for all teams before the start of the competition.

A mediation session is where parties mutually agree to resolve their disputes through talking and a discussion-based model.

Convener, Alternate Dispute Resolution Cell (ADRC), NLIU, Prateek Mishra said, the aim of the competition is to arrive at a solution that is mutual and does not compromise much with the aims of either party.

“There is a lot of scope for out-of-the-box thinking, real life solutions, creativity, even theatrics, without going into the legal hassles of procedure and lots of paper work,” he said.

There will be three cash prizes-best overall team, best advocate and client pair and best mediator of Rs 30,000, 20,000 and Rs 10,000 respectively.

NLIU director, professor SS Singh, NLIU, President of INADR, H Case Ellis, secretary INADR, Tom Valenti and administrator Meghann Sweeney attended the inaugural ceremony earlier during the day.  Prof Singh suggested that the problems based on real life situations be incorporated in the competition to make the experience richer.

The ceremony was followed by a training workshop for all students.  The members of INADR addressed the doubts of the students with respect to mediation and also gave important suggestions on improving the mediation skills. T he entire process of mediation was discussed at length.

The competition rounds are to begin from Saturday.  The final round is scheduled to be organised on Sunday.

Mediation request from Tanzania

I love the country of Tanzania!  It will always be important to me, since I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and went on safari there.  I saw exotic animals, including the big five! Climbing to the roof of Africa, crossing the Serengeti and traveling north to the Mara river was a fantastic adventure.  As a team member of Parkers Climb, we raised thousands of dollars to raise awareness and fund research for Parkinsons disease.  I’m proud to know the Tanzanian people seek mediation to resolve problems.

Tanzania asks for mediation over Lake Malawi dispute

By Fumbuka Ng’wanakilala

DAR ES SALAAM |         Sat Oct 6, 2012 3:32pm EDT

DAR ES SALAAM Oct 6 (Reuters) – Tanzania called on Saturday for an international mediator to resolve a long-standing border dispute with Malawi, conceding the latest talks over territorial rights to Lake Malawi and its potential reserves of oil and gas have failed.

The call comes after Malawi accused its neighbour of intimidating its citizens, halting talks with Tanzania over the ownership of the lake.

“It is clear now, that we cannot resolve the issue between us,” Tanzania’s foreign affairs minister, Bernard Membe, told a news conference. “We will go ahead and propose a mediator, even if Malawi does not return to the negotiations.”

Lake Malawi, known as Lake Nyasa in Tanzania, is Africa’s third largest lake and it is thought to sit over highly coveted oil and gas reserves.

Gas finds off Tanzania and Mozambique have led to predictions the region could become the third largest exporter of natural gas on the planet.

Malawi claims sovereignty over the entirety of the lake while Tanzania says it is entitled to 50 percent of it.

Tanzania wants an international mediator to be appointed from among former African presidents from the 15-nation trade bloc Southern African Development Community (SADC). Both Tanzania and Malawi are members of SADC.

Malawian officials have made it clear they will not continue with talks until Tanzania stops intimidating Malawi fishermen, an accusation denied by Dar Es Saalam.

Malawi said Tanzania had deployed military vessels on the lake, which Membe denied.

Malawi also wants Tanzania to withdraw a map that shows the border line passing in the middle of the disputed lake.

Probate and Family Court standing order 2-99

On July 2, 2012 the Probate and Family Court will implement changes to standing order 2-99. Standing Order 2-99 governs the “procedure for submission and disposition of certain post-hearing motions.”  Motions filed pursuant to standing order 2-99 must include the name of the justice who made the original order and must cite the applicable rule related to the relief requested.

The types of motions that may be filed under standing order 2-99 include: Rule 52 to amend findings of fact; Rule 52, to amend conclusions of law; Rule 59, for new trial; Rule 59(e), to amend judgments; and Rule 60, for relief from judgment and order.

All filings made by mail must note the amended standing order on the lower left corner of the mailing envelope, writing “Post-hearing Motion” will suffice.  The motion should include a brief statement, not to exceed five pages, indicating the facts and law that support why the motion should be granted.  Opposition papers may be filed within ten days after service of the motion.  If a party requests a hearing, the court may schedule a hearing, but is not required to do so.  The court may act on the motion without a hearing, based upon the written submissions under the standing order.

The changes were recommended by the Probate and Family Court  Bench/Bar Committe on Rules.

CHOOSE YOUR MEDIATOR WISELY

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court recently issued an opinion on whether a lawyer, disciplined and disqualified from practicing law, may serve as a mediator. While the court recognized that generally mediation is not considered practicing law, it did suggest several circumstances where a lawyer may be prohibited from acting as a mediator, due to bar discipline.
The Court articulated the following factors, “(1) whether the type of work is customarily performed by lawyers as part of their legal practice; (2) whether the work was performed by the lawyer prior to suspension, disbarment, or resignation for misconduct; (3) whether, following suspension, disbarment, or resignation for misconduct, the lawyer has performed or seeks leave to perform the work in the same office or community, or for other lawyers; and (4) whether the work as performed by the lawyer invokes the lawyer’s professional judgment in applying legal principles to address the individual needs of clients.”
While this may be an extreme example, not all mediators are alike. Experience counts! Take the time to interview several mediators to find the right fit for you. Call our case manager, Yvonne, at 508 795 0200. She will explain the mediation process and match you with one of our qualified and experienced divorce and family law mediators. At Parker Mediation, you have choices. Call us today to get started, 508 795 0200.

First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.

Sometimes people can “get stuck” in the divorce process.  This can occur when one or both parties take a stand and become as seemingly immovable as a mountain.  When people take positions, they often fail to see solutions to the problems.  Focusing only on one possibility can lead to an impasse. Communication may break down, harsh words may be exchanged, and the parties may become frustrated and drift even further apart.  An experienced mediator guides folks to understand the Zen Buddhist idea captured by Donovan in the song, “There is a Mountain.”

First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.

From my own experience climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro last summer, I attest to the truth of this statement.  Walking for days on the African plains, creeping toward the great monadnock affectionately nicknamed “Kili”, I understood.  Mount Kilimanjaro was big, really large, even enormous.  I was not, however, paralyzed with fear; I proceeded and yielded to the task.  As I climbed the looming mountain, with each small step, it disappeared beneath my feet. Finally, when I reached the summit, I was as light as the air.

The practice of teaching clients to see beyond the mountain, to explore alternatives to the principles they cling too, to get past the positions they are stuck on, is artful mediation.  When the mediator is mindful of potential situational deadlock, tactics may be used to avoid a destructive phase where communication deteriorates and progress is halted.  An experienced divorce mediator shares professional and personal insight with clients, permitting change and creating an atmosphere where solutions are made.  At times this may be subtle, but may also be more of a metamorphosis, where understanding and collaboration promote change.

First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.

The song continues, “The caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.”  Mindful mediation can help people give up the old ways and find a new, fresh, perhaps even better life.  An experienced, professional mediator can help.

If you wish to learn how you can keep control of your divorce, call our divorce mediation case manager, Yvonne, she’ll get you started in your new life.
