MEDIATION QUOTE OF THE WEEK February 21, 2005

Today in the U.S. we commemorate Presidents' Day, a federal holiday honoring the two U.S. presidents born during this month--George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The following quote is from Lincoln, who studied law and became a successful attorney long before he contemplated a run for the White House.

Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man.
