If you are struggling with a legal matter, you may feel intimidated by the thought of lengthy and costly court battles. Fortunately, mediation is an alternate form of conflict resolution, offering both parties the chance to share their concerns, make their cases, and coordinate a satisfying outcome. The mediation process tends to be much less adversarial or intimidating than a court battle, and clients often feel empowered by the procedure. In a typical mediation, both parties appear with their respective attorneys and discuss the dispute in front of a neutral third-party, known as the mediator. From there, everyone negotiates the terms of the resolution, and most people are able to walk away from mediation feeling lighter and in control of their future.
Mediation works well for any number of civil cases. Many business law disputes and personal injury cases can find successful and peaceful outcomes through the mediation process. For individuals or families faced with estate planning issues or disputes, mediation allows the involved parties to work together to secure a fair outcome. As long as both parties involved in the civil dispute are able to collaborate with one another to a certain extent, the mediation process should facilitate an equitable resolution.
