If you are seeking an alternative to litigation for resolution of your legal matter, let us be your Mediator. The Court can appoint your Mediator for you, or you can mutually agree to the Mediator of your choice.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which an impartial third party - the mediator - facilitates negotiations among the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable settlement. The major distinction between mediation and arbitration is that, unlike an arbitrator, a mediator does not make a decision about the outcome of the case. The parties, with the assistance of their attorneys, work toward a solution with which they are comfortable. The purpose of mediation is not to decide who is right or wrong. Rather, its goal is to give the parties the opportunity to (1) express feelings and diffuse anger, (2) clear up misunderstandings, (3) determine underlying interests or concerns, (4) find areas of agreement, and, ultimately, (5) incorporate these areas into solutions devised by the parties themselves.

The mediation process can be used in almost all areas of the law, including contractor disputes, contract issues, estate conflicts, business disputes.

What is a Mediator?

A mediator is a trained professional who assists the parties to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to the conflict. Mediators are neutral facilitators, unbiased and committed to the parties' self-determination. Mediators do not rule or make decisions on your conflict; rather, the Mediator's role is to guide the parties toward an agreement.

Why Should You Mediate?

  • Self determination: Mediation is different than litigation in that you decide the outcome, not a judge.
  • Maintaining relationships: Disputes can often be highly emotional. The process of mediation helps the parties to communicate with one another to better understand the motivating factors, and helps you get to a resolution that best accomplishes your goals.
  • Cost: Mediation will generally cost far less than litigation because you are using one trained professional to guide you through the settlement process, rather than two attorneys.
  • Efficiency and speed: The length of the mediation process is determined by the parties, not the courts. Generally, this also means that mediated agreements take far less time than agreements negotiated between two attorneys.
  • Confidentiality: Everything that happens in mediation is private and confidential.

How Does the Mediation Process Work?

  • Attorneys: Attorneys may be consulted during the mediation process for legal advice, and they can participate in the mediation process as your advocate.
  • The Memorandum of Understanding: After all issues are raised, negotiated and then resolved, the mediator will prepare a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) setting forth the parties agreements. In most matters, the (MOU) should be reviewed by an attorney.
