Quite often, litigation is not the best way to resolve a legal dispute. Mediation is a means of resolving matters without going to court. It is cost-effective, relatively quick, and allows parties to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. It is a give-and-take process. Through mediation, our firm can resolve cases using creative plans and alternative solutions.
Mediation is a relatively straightforward process. A mediator, who is an impartial observer, meets with the parties and their attorneys in a relaxed setting in an effort to promote open communication and a spirit of cooperation. Mediation is an important tool in the evaluation and resolution of civil law matters.
By serving as an impartial participant in the process, a mediator attempts to facilitate a mutually satisfactory settlement.
Most importantly, it is vital to have a mediator who is actively involved in civil and complex litigation and understands the issues and costs associated with pursuing a case through trial and the appellate process.
