Mediation is an effective option to settle a dispute without the need to go to court, or, in a pending court proceeding, it allows the parties to work out their own settlement.
Mediation is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a variety of legal areas. The role of the mediator is to help facilitate communication between the parties to reach a solution that both parties are happy to accept.
A mediator is a neutral third party -- the mediator does not take a side, make judgments, or give an opinion on the outcome of the dispute. Only the parties agree to the terms of the settlement. Mediation gives the parties an ability to have an opinion in the resolution of the dispute; unlike in a court proceeding, where a "winner" and a "loser" are determined by the judge or jury.
Mediation is a voluntary process and will only take place if the parties agree to mediation, unless mediation is ordered by a court in a pending court proceeding.
It is extremely confidential -- the negotiations that take place during a mediation are not disclosed to any party outside of the mediation. In fact, any discussion of settlement in a mediation cannot be used against a party at trial or other court hearing, in the even the dispute is not settled at mediation.
Both parties typically share in the cost of the mediation, which is determined by the mediator based on the complexity of the dispute between the parties.
If you are currently involved in a legal dispute, please contact our office if we can serve as a mediator to help effectively resolve your dispute.
