A mediator is a neutral third party, usually with some knowledge of the law, who meets with the parties, first together and then separately, in order to facilitate a discussion of the issues involved in the dispute. A mediator will encourage all parties to compromise on some things in order to reach an agreement that will benefit all those involved.
The mediation process has become very popular in recent years as a substitute for the lengthy and expensive ordeal of a trial. Many courts are now ordering that parties to a lawsuit participate in mediation before going to a trial. Quite often, by sitting down together with a trained and experienced mediator, parties will be able to reach an agreement that, if not exactly what they want, will provide some sense of satisfaction and closure.
If you find yourself embroiled in a legal dispute of some kind, you may want to seriously consider attempting mediation before entering into litigation. You just might save time, money and a lot of aggravation. For more information or to talk with Paul directly, please call today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
