About this Workshop:
As an experienced legal professional and court mediator, speaker Natalie Norman sees and settles countless disputes being brought into small claims court every week. Small claims are anything but small, in fact, they can be a big pain! Disputes can range from a few hundred dollars up to $10,000, and can carry additional costs of permanently damaged business-merchant relationships, negative online reviews, or missed future business by word-of-mouth reputation. In this presentation you will learn more about what often drives people to file lawsuits, how you might be able to avoid going to court, and how mediation can help parties settle litigated disputes, thereby avoiding the risk of having a public judgement on their record, damaging credit, or further damaging their valuable business reputation. If you are a local business or want to avoid litigating small claims disputes, this is is a presentation you won't want to miss!
