The more family meetings I mediate, the more I learn about the importance of communication skills! I could say more, but I won't.
Here's a paragraph from another part of the website:
The delicate issues surrounding inheritance are frequently daunting, particularly when those issues involve large and valuable parcels of land. Literature on the complex issues of property ownership is scant, competent advisors are few, and accurate information is often difficult to obtain. Land carries with it a stong sense of place and often inspires deep emotions connected to a family's legacy for present and future generations.
