Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is Alex. I will be happy to answer your question.Please note that any information is provided for educational purposes only!
Was your attorney present at the mediation?
Did you sign a written mediation agreement?
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, generally, it would be extremely difficult for a person who has legal representation at the mediation to set aside a signed written agreement, due to the fact that an attorney for the person was present and should have properly advised the client who signed such agreement.
If the local attorney didn't give proper or correct advice, then the person might have a claim against the attorney for legal malpractice, but unfortunately, generally, it would be extremely difficult to attempt to set aside the agreement under similar circumstances and the chances of success could be very minimal in most cases.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
