A Trained And Court-Approved Mediator In Peoria, Illinois

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for anyone else.” – Charles Dickens.

Protecting and asserting your rights does not always mean going to court. I truly seek to resolve legal disputes in a way that achieves a desirable outcome for my clients. I will go to the mat when a fight is necessary, but I view litigation as a last resort to be used when one party refuses to negotiate or mediate in good faith. At my firm, Angela Evans Law, PC, I can help you protect your emotional bandwidth and preserve your bottom line through mediation.

A Better Way To Resolve Your Legal Disputes

The United States of America is more litigious than any other country – some people even call a lawyer before they call their insurance company. This is great for lawyers who focus exclusively on litigation. They can rack up billable hours while their clients bear the weight of the stress and uncertainty of going to trial.

It does not have to be this way; not everything needs to be a court fight. Mediation provides an opportunity to resolve disputes in an amicable way without depleting your limited resources. As an experienced litigator, I can sit down with you and tell you exactly what is likely to happen if your case goes before a judge at trial. As an experienced meditator, I can help you reach a favorable conclusion without having to go through the stress and cost of a trial.

The primary focus of my law practice is family law, and I am an ardent proponent of mediating family law conflicts such as divorce and child custody as an alternative to expensive and destructive litigation. I am also available for  general mediation of other conflicts such as business disputes, landlord-tenant disputes and consumer complaints.

I am a trained and court-approved mediator, and I have been named to the Illinois State Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Section Council for 2022-23.

Talk To Me Before You Sue

Litigation has its place, but it should be used as a last resort. Before you expose yourself to the emotional and financial costs of litigation, make sure you have exhausted your other options. Call 309-839-9539 to talk to me about your legal dispute. I will use my mediation and arbitration training to find a solution that protects your legal and financial interests.

Mediation Focuses On The Future

Litigation feeds on anger and hurt and resentments about the past. It emphasizes your differences and your conflicts. Mediation is more about your future. It emphasizes common ground, compromise and communication. You are still discussing finances and parenting styles and all the things that contributed to the end of the marriage, but in the spirit of moving forward, learning from the past and finding a way to parent together.

You have the solutions within you. As your mediator, my role is to nudge the conversation, cover all the bases and help you iron out the details. Your children and your future self will be thankful.
