EVERYONE WINS IN MEDIATION.
In Order to Resolve a Lawsuit Through the Court, There Must Be a Trial and It Will Be a Public Proceeding:
In addition to the fact that the parties “air their laundry” in public whenever there is a court case filed, they also give up control of their dispute. In other words, when a lawsuit is filed, a judge or a jury determines the outcome for the parties. In court, there is always a winner and a loser.
Alternative Dispute Resolution Services (ADR) is the Concept of Taking the Court Out of the Court System:
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the concept of taking a case out of the court system and resolving it in a manner that may be confidential. Mediation is an ADR process whereby the parties are assisted by a trained and skilled third party who serves as a mediator. The mediator meets privately with the parties to facilitate confidential communication, reconciliation and negotiation between the parties in order to reach a voluntary and mutually agreeable resolution.
