Mediation is a private, confidential, and cooperative process in which an impartial person helps individuals or entities in conflict resolve and settle their differences.
Mediation is practical, relatively informal, and unencumbered by courtroom procedures or legal technicalities. In most cases, mediation is significantly less expensive than litigation.
Mediation empowers the parties to retain control of the critical decisions that affect their personal, financial, and business interests.
Mediation is an effective and positive alternative to emotionally and financially debilitating courtroom battles. Although litigation is sometimes required, mediation is an alternative that should be considered when any dispute arises.
- All parties meet personally with the mediator in joint and/or separate sessions.
- Relevant information and documentation is exchanged.
- The mediator does not impose or compel a settlement or a particular result but rather empowers the parties to determine their own outcome.
