Mediation is a voluntary process in which a neutral third party called a mediator provides an opportunity for all parties to express and resolve issues that may be of concern to them.
Mediation requires all parties to enter into a dialogue with good faith and a true desire to reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
The mediator is not permitted to not make decisions for the parties, and the parties may end the mediation at any time. The mediator assists the parties to communicate effectively and respectfully.
The process is extremely flexible and can cost significantly less than litigation as the parties typically share the cost of mediation.
The mediator holds an intake meeting with each party individually to access their issues and determine if mediation is a suitable and viable way to reach a resolution.
An Agreement to Mediate will be executed by both parties, and a retainer will be paid. The mediation process will commence shortly thereafter according to the parties’ availability.
