What is Mediation?
Mediation is utilized in all aspects of litigation in order to minimize disputes and avoid the necessity of a trial. In fact, in many courts, the parties must mediate in good faith before a court will hear a case at a final trial or empanel a jury.
A mediator is a neutral third party who acknowledges your emotional and practical concerns, while helping to negotiate an agreement between you and the other party concerning your legal matter. Mediators do not make decisions for the parties or represent either party, but rather assist the parties in reaching an agreed solution. It is important to choose an experienced and trained mediator to give you the best possible chance of reaching a resolution with the other party.
