What is Mediation?
Mediation is a great alternative to litigation. It is a process that allows people that are in a dispute to resolve their conflict without going to court. Mediation sessions are conducted in a flexible, neutral, and confidential environment, where parties in dispute control the outcome. Mediation sessions can be scheduled quickly, which saves time and money on legal expenses. Disputes that end up in litigation often take years to resolve, therefore costing more in legal fees. Court sessions are typically open to the public, where a judge or jury determines the outcome. Mediation allows each person to negotiate privately, as mediation sessions are not open to the public.
