“When you have something against another Christian,
why do you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter,
instead of taking it to another Christian to decide who is right?”
(1 Corinthians 6:1, NLT)

JANET CARTER CURRENTLY PROVIDES BOTH CHRISTIAN MEDIATION AND LITIGATION CONSULTANT SERVICES:

IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR MATTER CAN BE RESOLVED THROUGH MEDIATION AND YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY REFERRAL FOR LITIGATION PURPOSES PLEASE EMAIL JANET FOR A REFERRAL AT: ASKTHEADVOCATE@AOL.COM

CHRISTIAN MEDIATION is a method by which Christians can have their personal and legal disputes heard and resolved by an experienced Christian Attorney. All resolutions are based on both Biblical and Legal principles and as such, CHRISTIAN MEDIATION is the preferred alternative to in-court litigation battles for both Biblical and practical reasons. Namely, the parties can avoid the cost of paying two large retainer amounts, to hire two attorneys to battle it out in court indefinitely. Instead, in most cases, the parties jointly share the hourly rate and no up front retainer fee is required. Payment for each session is due upon completion of each session. This “pay-as-you-go” method allows the parties to proceed as fast as they can afford to.

In most instances when the parties come to an agreement on all issues, there is no need for any court appearance; and even if the parties cannot resolve all issues, when they are forced to hire attorneys, they can minimize the number of issues to be litigated and thus save on attorney fees.

Mediation meetings are set at a one (1) hour minimum, three (3) hour maximum. Janet charges a reduced hourly rate for her Mediation services and they can be used for just about any possible type of conflict.

LITIGATION CONSULTANT: If your case is already in the court system; for those who feel like there is no way out of this long drawn out process and they are wondering, “When will these attorneys fees ever stop???” In cases where the litigation process seems to be stuck and you would like another opinion on how to manage your case so that you can move on with your life, you may wish to consider hiring Janet as a Litigation Consultant.

Or, for those of you who have the funds to pay you attorney; but, with your attorney’s heavy case load, you feel like your case is not getting the attention it needs to bring it to completion, you may wish to consider hiring Janet as a Litigation Consultant.

As a Litigation Consultant, Janet will take a look at your case, the parties, the claims, the evidence, etc. and devise a strategy to set in motion a means by which your matter will be brought to conclusion as quickly as possible. This may include initiating voluntary settlement negotiations, initiating discovery and/or bringing discovery motions, setting a case for trial, meeting with opposing counsel, or any other means available to resolve your matter.

Janet does not appear in court as your “attorney of record”, instead she confers, consults and directs the litigation process for your attorney of record to carry out. They work together as a team to determine and devise the best case strategies available to resolve your matter. If your attorney of record is doing a good job, you can always keep your current attorney; but if they are not, you can get a referral from Janet and hire-in other counsel.

If you have any questions about the Mediation or Litigation Consultant process please contact Janet by email at: ADVOCATEJC@aol.com or call: 714.444.2984 for more information and/or to schedule your first appointment.
