How Old is Your Oldest Case?

It’s funny how time can sneak up on you. This time of year, I always think about how fast time seems to fly  because I am a New Year’s baby. You look around and it seems that another year has passed in the blink of an eye.

The same time thief invades your case files. You look through your files and notice that a file has been open for five years! I think my personal record may have been around nine years!

Think about the human cost of those years. All that time your clients have been frozen in time, unable to move forward until you resolve the case.

As you review your case load this month, consider whether mediation could have resolved some of those cases sooner. Take action in 2011 to free your clients from unresolved conflict.
