Mediation is an important component of the legal process and is mandatory in both Circuit and Family Court cases. It is often a useful tool, used in a variety of cases, presenting litigants with a unique opportunity to help clients resolve their differences before a case goes to trial. Well over 95% of all lawsuits settle before trial.
A mediator serves as a neutral, third party, who facilitates settlement discussions and helps parties craft their own resolutions. Settlements allow parties to avoid the stress, cost, and the uncertainty of a trial. Even when mediation does not end with a settlement, the mediation process frequently allow parties to narrow the disputed issues in a case. Whether serving as a mediator or an advocate, a thorough understanding of the mediation process is critical.
