Advantages to Mediation

  • Confidentiality.
    Mediation sessions are confidential.
  • Control.
    The parties retain control of the process. The outcome is not handed over to a stranger (judge).
  • Realism.
    The parties can work out an agreement, with terms that can realistically be met.
  • Savings.
    The parties may save legal fees and time.
  • Convenience.
    The parties schedule mediation sessions at mutually agreeable times.
  • Less acrimony.
    Mediation is more cooperative and collaborative.
  • It works!
    Mediation works because the parties themselves have fashioned the Settlement Agreement and they therefore commit to stand by it.
