Mediation is an informal and confidential way for people to resolve disputes with the help of a neutral party who is trained to help people discuss their differences, and seek a resolution that is acceptable to all sides. The mediator does not decide who is right or wrong, or issue a decision. Instead, the mediator helps the parties work out their own solutions to problems.
One of the greatest benefits of mediation is that it allows people or businesses to resolve their disputes in a less confrontational way and in ways that meet their own unique needs. Also, a case can be resolved faster, and less expensively through mediation than through trial. Mediation is fair, efficient, and can help the parties avoid a lengthy and costly litigation.
