Litigation is often costly and time consuming. For many people, Mediation is a better way to resolve disputes. Mediation is an excellent alternative to “Fighting it out in Court”.  Mediation is a voluntary and confidential settlement process in which a neutral third party, called a mediator, guides the disputants to a reasonable resolution of their dispute by helping them: 
Focus on their needs
Explore alternatives
Resolve legal issues
Negotiate agreements

The parties are part of the process which gives them a sense of control and a chance to be heard. Attorneys play an important role in dispute resolution, however they can be very time consuming and expensive.  However, mediation while attorneys are often present, does not require attorneys to resolve the dispute. Parties need only to have an open mind and possess a good faith desire to settle the dispute. However, there is never a requirement to settle if either of the parties does not believe that settlement is in his/her best interest. If the parties have attorneys, mediation can provide an opportunity for attorneys to serve their clients better through creative problem-solving.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ layout=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding_top=”” padding_right=”” padding_bottom=”” padding_left=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none” last=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all”][fusion_separator style_type=”single solid” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” sep_color=”#e2211c” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”” border_size=”5px” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” /][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
