I agree with much that you have to say - sometimes clients can be hard to steer and in those cases mediation is a great tool. However, I recognize as a mediator (currently) and a litigator (first career) that sometimes the attorney has set the course and allowed the clients' expectations to get out of whack - something your article/blog does not address... Then the attorney has to rely on the mediator to bring the client back off the cliff that the attorney (perhaps inadvertently) put them up on...
