Advantages of Mediation

It would be difficult to exaggerate the benefit of resolving legal disputes through mediation rather than by going to trial. In fact, many courts impose a requirement that the parties attempt to reach a settlement through alternative dispute resolution before holding a trial.

In mediation, the parties involved maintain a much greater degree of control over the final outcome of the case, because the terms of the settlement are up to them, rather than being decided by a judge or jury. The proceedings are non-adversarial, as the parties are attempting to reach fair agreements and are guided and assisted in this by the mediator. The mediator does not represent either person, but instead acts as a neutral third party, working to clarify legal issues and guide discussions toward a speedy resolution.
