“With any will or estate dispute, emotions and tension among family members run high. The sad reality is that a small dispute can ultimately tear a family apart.

That’s why Hawco Peters provides a collaborative approach to help guide families. We’ve seen it all and helped families from all walks of life work through their differences and reach agreements that work for everyone involved.”

What makes Hawco Peters better
than traditional litigation?

Fast

Traditional litigation proceedings can drag on for years, while Hawco Peters resolves disputes in weeks.

Private

Unlike most court proceedings, the terms of a mediated settlement are not publicly available.

Cost-effective

The Hawco Peters process is significantly less expensive than proceeding to trial or a judicial hearing.

Collaborative

Unlike litigation, you are part of the process, sharing your opinions, concerns and ideas about the terms of a settlement.

Mutually beneficial

Instead of having a final decision imposed by the court, both parties work together to reach and agree on a final outcome.

Resolution

If an issue cannot be resolved by mediation, the parties will engage in a binding arbitration. Either way, a final outcome is achieved.

Choose a better alternative.

Negotiation, not litigation.

  • Preserve wealth and relationships
  • Private and confidential
  • Fixed cost and timelines
  • Flexible, both parties agree on final outcome
  • Get back to business and life faster
