www.parachinilaw.com I represent a diverse mix in a vast array of specialties, including litigation, contracts, compliance, business and financial strategies, and emerging industries. Credit for this foundation of strength goes to those who taught me. Skilled professors and professionals fostered my powerful educational and professional background. Prior to law school, I earned dual Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration & Accounting from Peru State College. I received a Master of Business Administration degree from Chadron State College. My ambitions did not stop there. While working full time as a Senior Accountant for the University of Missouri, Columbia, I achieved the lifelong goal of becoming a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Mizzo provided excellent opportunities and amazing experiences. Managing over $50M in government and private research funding was a gift. As a high ranking professional in the Department of Research, I was given priceless insight into the greatest scientific, journalistic, medical, and legal minds in the world. My passion for successful growth did not, and has not stopped. I graduated summa cum laude (top 3%) with a Doctorate in Law, emphasizing in urban, land use and environmental/toxic tort law from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. This success lead to invaluable experiences of serving as Hon. Brian C. Wimes' judicial clerk for the U.S. District Court for the W. D. of Missouri, as a staff editor/writer for UMKC Law Review, and as a litigation and transactional attorney with Lathrop GPM (fka Lathrop & Gage). My professional and personal network is expansive, with established relationships throughout the U.S. and overseas. Although I engage in legal practice all over the country, I maintain law licenses in Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. Federally, I hold licenses in the W.D. and E.D. of Missouri and the District of Nebraska. To offer extra value, efficiency, and options, I maintain a CPA license and am obtaining a real-estate brokerage license.

Mediation Legal Questions and Answers

Mediation

Dispute Resolution Agreement

Washington

Asked on Jun 20, 2024

Can a Dispute Resolution Agreement be enforced if one of the parties did not sign it?

I am currently involved in a dispute with a business partner regarding the dissolution of our partnership. We had previously entered into a Dispute Resolution Agreement which outlined the process for resolving any conflicts or disagreements. However, my partner never signed the agreement, although I did. I am wondering if the agreement can still be enforced, or if I will need to pursue alternative methods of dispute resolution.

Merry A.

Answered Jun 21, 2024

Naturally, it's far more difficult to enforce an agreement if one or more parties failed to sign it. However, sometimes it's possible to claim that the parties had a verbal agreement and the terms of the verbal agreement can be enforced. Regardless of whether the parties have signed an agreement or not, you may want to recommend mediation. Often, each party puts out three names, and the parties agree on a mediator or mediation company, and agree (in writing is best) to split the costs, and to engage in mediation at least twice. Mediation can very often help parties resolve disputes, and enter into a dissolution agreement, for far less money and stress than any other means, such as binding arbitration or a judicial court proceeding. There are numerous mediation/arbitration companies in Washington - the most well-known is probably JAMS. Whomever you pick, be sure to check reviews/references, just as you would for any other company or employee you use for any endeavor. Some people use an attorney to assist in mediation. If we're talking about substantial amounts of money, I recommend using an attorney to help in mediation.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
