More on Mediation
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is a voluntary process in which two parties agree to use a neutral third party to resolve a legal dispute. Courts can and often do order parties to attempt mediation before litigation proceeds. Attorneys sometimes participate in mediation, but some mediations are successful when only the parties themselves meet with the mediator.
WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION?
Parties who resolve disputes through mediation are usually more satisfied with the result than those who litigate. It is easy to understand why. Traditional litigation is usually more expensive, time-consuming, and public. Mediations are typically concluded within a day, rather than dragging on for months or years like litigation. In contrast to courtroom litigation, communications exchanged through mediation are typically confidential.
In litigation, parties attack the opposing side’s weaknesses. In mediation, a skilled mediator educates the parties on their common interests. The mediator’s chief job is to offer an unbiased, neutral perspective on the strengths of each party's claim. Because of this, 70-80% of mediations end successfully.
HOW CAN I BEGIN MEDIATION?
Mediation typically begins when one side suggests mediation as an alternative to litigation. Of course, the sooner mediation occurs, the greater its cost-saving and time-saving advantages are for both parties. Although parties may choose to begin mediation together, it is not uncommon for one party to approach a mediator who then contacts the other side to begin the mediation process. This process may be helpful in acrimonious cases.
