The question is often asked - "What is mediation, and how can it assist me in resolving litigation and related disputes?" Mediation is an informal voluntary settlement process to help you resolve disputes with the assistance of an approved mediator.

The mediation identifies important issues, clarifies misunderstandings, explores solutions, and negotiates settlement of the disputes. It is important to understand the role of the mediator in the process. The mediator helps those involved in the dispute talk to each other thereby allowing them to resolve the dispute themselves. The mediator manages the mediation session and remains impartial. The mediator, however, is not a judge and does not make a decision or impose a solution on the dispute.

The benefits of mediation:

The parties involved control the resolution of their dispute
Reduced cost compared to court litigation
Promotes a better relationship through cooperative problem solving and improved communication

Is private and any settlement reached through mediation is always entirely voluntary. If you cannot reach an agreement, you still have the right to take the dispute before a judge or jury.
