Understanding Mediation Process

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method that can help the parties reach a settlement or agreement rather than going through the costs and delays of a formal lawsuit or trial. 

The Role of the Mediator

At Mediation both sides may be represented by an attorney, or they can choose to participate without an attorney. The Mediator does not represent either side, but attempts to facilitate an agreement, usually by discussing the matter in a back-and-forth fashion. If needed, the mediator can consult with the parties in private meetings, called caucuses, asking both sides to consider options, outcomes, resolutions and hopefully, moving each side closer to an agreement in a private setting.
