What is legal mediation?
Mediation is the “attempt to settle a legal dispute through active participation of a third party (mediator) who works to find points of agreement and make those in conflict agree on a fair result."
Why consider mediation?
Mediation is a quick, private, fair, and inexpensive option compared to a lawsuit. Most sessions only last a few hours, are completely confidential (with very few exceptions such as a criminal act or child abuse), and will almost always save you money.
A mediator has an important perspective on the case and is able to effectively communicate both party’s views and open the door to a mutually acceptable agreement. Mediation is a great alternative to a drawn-out court case and an important option to consider.
