In most jurisdictions in this country, settlement through mediation is a widely used tool to resolve lawsuits. Interestingly, mediation is required in many courts before the final trial to conserve the resources of the court, but more importantly, to give the litigants agency in their own lawsuit. Our Harmony Recovery Services co-founder, Garrett C. Higley, is available to mediate cases in any area of law anywhere in the nation that involves substance use disorder or other mental health issues. Garrett, a highly skilled litigator and seasoned mediator, is passionate about finding amicable solutions to conflict and brings his experience, both as an attorney and behavioral health professional, to bear with every mediation he conducts.
