What Is the Goal of Mediation?
The goal of mediation is to resolve all or part of the dispute to help avoid the uncertainty and expense of going to trial. Mediation gives you control over the outcome of your dispute, since you’re not leaving it to a judge who doesn’t know you, your opponent, or the intricacies of your case. Halverson Law Group aims to give parties a true opportunity to work through their differences and resolve their dispute.
What Is the Benefit of Mediation?
There are so many benefits to mediation. Successfully mediating a case allows parties to stay in control of their case’s outcome. Mediation is not binding, so unless you reach an agreement, you or your client have no obligation to accept a settlement.
Successful mediation can also save immense amounts in attorneys’ fees. Parties who resolve even a portion of the disputed issues can streamline the trial and reduce attorney time. Those who resolve a case in full eliminate the need for attorneys to take their case to trial. Judges know that most parties in dispute will come to a resolution if given the chance, so they typically require mediation.
