Benefits of Mediation

                           MEDIATION IS:

EFFECTIVE: With a 80-90% success rate using an experienced mediator, mutually satisfactory results can be had by the parties.

LOW-COST: Mediation is cost-effective; saving significant money. It is substantially more economical than civil litigation.

FAST: Most mediations are scheduled quickly and most disputes can be resolved in a day or less.

CONFIDENTIAL: It is a private process not subject to public knowledge and possible media attention, as can be the case with civil litigation.

LESS-ADVERSARIAL: Disputants work together in collaboration to reach a resolution they can live with. The process prevents escalations of conflict and often helps to reduce hostility.

WIN-WIN: People who meditate reach solutions that are durable and mutually satisfying.

CONVENIENT: Sessions are scheduled during the day or evening hours to accommodate the parties’ schedules.

LOW-RISK: Mediation is low-risk versus a court proceeding which can result in judgment with negative impact to a party/parties.

Marked by a HIGH—COMPLIANCE RATE: Participants are more likely to comply with the terms of the Agreement reached, which is an enforceable contract, if they had a role in the creation of that Agreement. Mediation is the only dispute resolution process that STRENGTHENS & PRESERVES RELATIONSHIPS, making future disputes less likely.

DRIVEN BY THE PARTIES: In mediation, the parties determine the outcome with certainty and have more flexibility to come up with creative solutions that are not available in a courtroom setting where a verdict or decision is uncertain and determined by a judge or jury.
