Should We Offer Mediation for Probate Issues?

I'm impressed by the variety of ways mediation shows up in the the UK. Do you know of mediators here in the states who include probate issues in their practices ?

Legal Week

All probate lawyers know the range of issues that can arise. A son argues against a stepmother: why have I been left out in favour of you� A first wife fights a second wife or a mistress. A daughter who cared for the deceased fights a brother who cared not at all, or so she says. Inheritance family provision claims abound. And there are complicating factors -- the will can aggravate pre-existing problems, bringing into the open long-running squabbles which may have simmered beneath the surface.
