Mediation can be a very cost-effective and efficient way for our clients to achieve their objectives without the cost, stress, and uncertainty of trial.
Formal mediation can be an effective tool in business, trust, and real estate litigation. In business litigation, Mediation is essentially a process in which the parties attempt to conclude a settlement of their lawsuit before the trial date without going to trial. In mediation the two sides agree on a mediator (often called a "neutral") who will attempt to stand between the two sides and help them settle their case. Usually a mediator will be a retired Judge, or in some cases an experienced attorney trained and experienced in mediation.
