"I WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE IN YOUR MEDIATION TO ENSURE THAT THE BEST OFFER IS ACHIEVED AND THE SETTLEMENT REALISTIC AND FAIR."

Mediation is a settlement process where a third-party mediator assists the parties in negotiating a voluntary settlement of a dispute. Mediation is far more cost effective than traditional litigation which usually lasts one day versus years for litigation.

Central to mediation are the concepts of:

  • Voluntary participation
  • Collaborative communication
  • Controlled environment
  • Confidential outcomes
  • Informed consent of all parties throughout the process
  • Impartial, Neutral, Balanced and Safe
    Self-Responsible and Satisfying to all parties

There must be a realistic evaluation of the most probable outcome of the dispute if it is not settled in mediation. The negotiations must continue until such time as each side has put their best offer on the table. Without these two things happening, the chances of settlement are significantly reduced.

In order to obtain a "realistic" evaluation of the most probable outcome, there must be a full discussion of the issues, preferably in an joint session, where all parties are present and exposed to the other side's point of view. This helps educate the parties and gives them a more realistic view of the dispute.

 Furthermore, a joint discussion often provides the parties with a realistic understanding of the issues in dispute and the intensity of the opposing parties position. By directly observing the other party's reaction to factual and legal theories, the parties begin to understand the chances of persuading the other side as to the validity of their own position.
