Mediation is a Win-Win Solution

Mediation is a Win-Win Solution.

Mediation allows parties to create solutions specific to their needs. Mediation is different from litigation, where a judge or jury makes a final decision. Judges are likely to make one-size-fits-all decisions based on precedent which both parties and families will have to live with. With mediation, both sides can win more of what they want. Mediation is a win-win solution.

  • Parties settle their differences in a safe, confidential, efficient manner.
  • Mediation helps each party get more of what they want, while saving significant time and money.
  • Mediation agreements are legally binding documents which are legally enforceable by the court.

If you are experiencing conflict in any area of your life, you can get a free and confidential consultation from a professional mediator. Just contact us.

Saves TimeConflict writing on note concept

Lawyer, court, and litigation processes have no capability for time efficiency.

  • Courts are overloaded and slow.
  • Lawyers and litigation can only work at the speed of the courts and therefore cannot resolve conflicts efficiently.
  • Litigation takes months to years.

In mediation, you are in control of the timing.

  • Many complex mediations take less than a half-day to be fully resolved.
  • Mediations can often be scheduled and completed within a couple weeks.
  • Mediation outcomes typically give each party more of what they ask for.

Contact us today to find out how quickly your situation can be resolved.

    

Saves Money

Mediation is significantly less expensive than going to court. Resolving a dispute with court litigation is very expensive. Each party must hire a different lawyer, and each pay their lawyer. This doubles the cost of the process automatically.

  • Mediation splits a lower overall cost.
  • Litigation doubles a higher overall cost.
  • The cost of mediation is significantly less than litigation.
  • Mediation agreements are just as enforceable as litigated agreements.

If you reach an agreement in mediation, the mediator will put the agreement into writing. When signed, the agreement becomes a legally binding document which is enforceable by the court.

Preserve Relationships

Mediation is ideal for situations where parties need to maintain contact, proximity, or interaction.

Mediation achieves outcomes in a way that is civilized and non-adversarial.

  • In many parenting situations it is beneficial to the children for the parents to maintain a civil relationship.
  • In business or customer relationships, it can be critical for parties to continue to work together in a non-adversarial way.

Mediation facilitates communication and understanding between parties and can actually strengthen business and personal relationships. Litigation, by definition, is an adversarial process. Mediation offers a collaborative resolution to preserve a relationship.
