Mediation is a well-established process in which a trained mediator serves as an impartial facilitator in a effort to help the parties reach a solution. The mediator, meeting with the parties jointly or separately, seeks to ensure a common understanding of the underlying issues. He helps the parties generate collaborative solutions and, if they reach agreement, he assists them in writing a settlement agreement.
Mediation is better than litigation because it is confidential, faster, and cheaper.
Because mediations may be completed in a matter of hours, rather than years, mediation is far less expensive than litigation. We charge a reasonable hourly fee that is split between the parties.
