"Where you need us to be, when you need us to be there, 24/7"™


Legal mediation is a process that involves the intervention of a neutral third party to facilitate communication and negotiation between two parties in a legal dispute.

This method is commonly used to resolve conflicts outside of the courtroom, aiming to find a mutually acceptable solution for both parties involved. During the mediation process, the mediator helps the parties communicate their concerns, interests, and goals, enabling them to better understand each other’s perspectives. The mediator also assists in generating options for settlement and guiding the parties towards reaching a resolution. This alternative dispute resolution method is often preferred due to its flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and confidentiality. It allows the parties to maintain control over the outcome of the dispute and encourages them to collaborate towards a fair and satisfactory resolution.

What Steps are Involved in Mediation?

The steps of legal mediation typically begin with an opening statement, where each party presents their perspective on the issue at hand. This is followed by an information-gathering phase, where the mediator helps identify the underlying interests and concerns of each party. Then, the mediator guides the parties through a brainstorming and negotiation phase, where potential solutions are explored and evaluated. Finally, if a resolution is reached, the mediator helps draft a settlement agreement that outlines the terms agreed upon by both parties.
