Jason Wagner is double-trained in both Mediation AND Litigation. Jason Wagner has a firm belief that it is usually preferable to attend private mediations before moving to litigation.
Mediation allows the parties to see if they can settle their divorce the easier and less costly way. Additionally, if you cannot settle in mediation, each party has a significant “head-start” in the litigation process since the information gathered for mediation is almost identical to the information needed to go to court.
Jason Wagner provides personalized services to each client and recognizes that clients seeking legal services are often in positions of high stress and financial strain. Jason can help you and your family get through this difficult experience.
