Mediation is a voluntary process in which parties who are on opposite sides of a dispute will attempt to work out their differences with the aid of a mediator – a neutral third party who facilitates the discussion. The goal of mediation is for the parties to willingly come to an agreement to resolve their civil dispute. A mediator does not decide any issues or render a final decision, but instead works to find a resolution that is most appropriate for both parties. Mediation can be used at almost any point, whether it is the first step in remedying a dispute or a final attempt to avoid going to court or to trial. The benefits of mediation include reducing the time, money and energy it takes to litigate a civil case through trial, gaining a greater understanding of your adversary’s position, and developing a negotiated resolution that, at times, can include terms parties would not be able to achieve directly in court.
Monique took on a complicated medical malpractice appeal for my clients after we obtained a jury verdict. Not only was she successful in upholding the verdict, but it became a published decision that helped define the landscape of California law. For her efforts she was recognized by California Lawyer Magazine as an "Attorney of the Year" for medical malpractice! When I have an appellate issue, Monique is my first choice!!
Hiring Monique Olivier to handle the appeal of a trial I won was easily one of the best decisions I have made in my entire legal career. In addition to being incredibly smart, Monique’s skills and preparation were impeccable. She gave me a tremendous amount of confidence, and did an incredible job in every aspect of our appeal. My clients and I will always be grateful for Monique's superior work, and I strongly recommend her as an appellate lawyer.
Christian and his team looked out for my best interests. They had my back and were professional and unrelenting in achieving fairness for me.
Christian Schreiber was very supportive, considerate, and understanding of my situation. Super hardworking, it felt as if he was always working on my case, and always kept me in the loop. I truly appreciated that. He was always available and was super quick to answer any questions or concerns I had. He has a true passion for this job and I will highly recommend him.
I needed counsel ready to interact with a delinquent, low integrity, and untrustworthy employer. I also needed clear guidance on the path ahead. O&S was instrumental in driving the clarity I needed while being both comforting and "no nonsense." Deeply satisfied with my representation, I have recommended O&S numerous times to others in need of employment labor counsel.
Monique Olivier came highly recommended to me by a dear friend. After one meeting, it was clear to me that she was the direct, wise, and earnest attorney that I needed to back me. Monique was accessible and patient with me, particularly with the emotional aspects of my situation, and was able to provide clear and honest counsel. In the end, we were a successful team. I will forever be grateful for her support and advocacy. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Christian is an extremely knowledgeable class action attorney. He's very passionate about protecting employees' rights and helping others. In sum, an outstanding lawyer and a very kind person. I can't recommend him enough.
