                                                   Why Mediate?

 

 The mediation process is voluntary (except for some ADR agreements which may require mediation before commencing other options) and thus the results are voluntary. Mediation has a high rate of success and often occurs before litigation or formal discovery has taken place. Flexibility and creative solutions are always possible.

 

Mediation saves time and money. In general, mediation can last one to two hours or longer depending on the type of case. Unlike litigation which can take several months to several years to resolve with costly legal fees and expenses, mediation resolves conflict with a final binding agreement within a short time.

 

Please find a certified Mediator to settle disputes. This information provided does not guarantee a successful outcome as each circumstance is unique.
