Mediation Information

Mediation - What is it & why should you care?

Mediation is a process where folks who have disagreements actually sit down together with a third party (the Mediator) who helps the parties work through their issues to reach a solution they can all live with. This process lets the parties actually have a say in the outcome and gives everyone a chance to both listen and be heard. Mediation also keeps you from going to court and forcing you to accept whatever ruling a judge or jury makes - one that is out of your hands. But most importantly, mediation can save you money! The cost of mediation is significantly less than the typical cost for an attorney to take your case to trial. According to a recent survey, 85% of conflicts which go to mediation end up resolving prior to litigation; and the satisfaction of the participants in Mediation is even higher! Mediation is a true chance for you to be a part of the process - because you are the process. A true mediator will not tell you what to do, give you any direction, offer any advice, or give you an opinion - the mediator's job is to facilitate conversation between the parties and to get you to work out a resolution with each other. You come up with your own ideas and possible solutions, which is why mediation helps bring the best out of people in a stressful situation.

Have You Been Ordered To Mediate? - You have received either something in the mail or a call from your attorney that you are being ordered by a Judge to mediate - what does this mean? Basically it means that the Judge wants to give you one last chance to try to sit down with the other side and talk it out before you go to court. The harsh reality of a trial is that once the Judge issues a ruling, you have to live with that ruling and have no say in the final outcome. Many people who win court cases still feel as though they are no better off because they didn't have a chance to be heard or the remedy isn't what they would like. Mediation gives you that chance - the chance to craft a remedy that you are more likely to be happy with and also the chance to both listen and be heard fully. Court does not always give you that possibility. So if you have received an order to mediate, embrace that order as an opportunity to be a true part of the resolution of your matter prior to trial. Go into mediation, be willing to listen, and really make a good faith effort to work it out - because it may be the last chance you have to really listen and to be heard.
