Justice for You
Mediation is a process used by parties to negotiate their differences with the assistance of an impartial third person. The mediator helps the parties have a conversation but leaves the decision power in the hands of the parties. The dispute may either be pending in a court or potentially a dispute which may be filed in court. Cases suitable for mediation are disputes in commercial transactions, personal injury, construction, workers compensation, labor or community relations, divorce, domestic relations, employment or any other matters which do not involve complex procedural or evidentiary issues. Participation in mediation is voluntary except where governed by statute or contract clause.
Parties choose mediation over traditional litigation for a number of reasons. Mediation is less costly in time and money than litigation. It can typically be scheduled within weeks of the decision to mediate whereas, hearings take longer due to crowded court dockets. This results in a timely resolution to the dispute. The privacy and confidential nature of mediation also appeal to parties. The parties are empowered to solve their problem which in turn promotes healing or allows the parties to continue their business, employment, or personal relationship.
