I am a skilled negotiator who helps you obtain the best possible settlements while preserving amicable relationships. Mediation gives you control over the process, and it often provides more-expedient, more-predictable results than going to trial can.
Dan Hogue puts my 32 years of mediation experience to work for you in cases including:
From filing a complaint on your behalf to mediating an equitable solution, my persistence and knowledge achieve results. To devise a strategic course of action, I thoroughly analyze all aspects of your case. Then I put my plan into action. Each move is deliberately calculated to reach your desired goals. I anticipate opposing counsel’s next move and adjust my tactics to maneuver into a better position.
In many cases, both parties are best served when they establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, you can set aside hostility and agree on key points. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for you to preserve the stability and well-being of employment, community or business relationships during the turbulent process of litigation or before filing a lawsuit. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of legal conflicts, and it puts important decisions in your hands, rather than in the court’s power.
I carefully direct contract negotiations toward an agreement that accomplishes your goals. You can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that explicitly states all the terms of your agreement. You will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with California law and that your rights are protected in the event that a dispute arises.
When a contract is breached, it can wreak havoc on your business. When it is in your best interest to resolve a dispute outside the courtroom, I effectively guide negotiations toward win-win solutions — often preserving business relationships and sparing you the expense and uncertainty that are associated with litigation.
