What is Mediation?

You can benefit from good-faith mediation! Choose Associates in Mediation.


Before you pick up the weapons of litigation consider using the tools of communication by engaging in a mediation.  And if you have already picked up the weapons of trial, consider putting them down to try the tools of pre-trial mediation.

If you are already involved in trial litigation, there is little risk of negative effect at trial with the creation of the Uniform Mediation Act in 1997. It requires confidentiality and no specific report is allowed. The cost of the mediator is split by the parties and the time devoted to the effort can be limited by agreement and/or extended if progress toward resolution is being made.
