Why Use Mediation

Advantages of Mediation

Mediation has several advantages over the traditional litigation process:

  • Mediation presents a win-win result, rather than the win-lose result generated in an adverse court proceeding, which is beneficial to each side.
  • If two parties can reach an agreement privately through mediation, they can avoid the confrontational proceedings in a traditional courtroom battle.
  • Mediation is less costly to both parties and the court system.
  • A less formal, more comfortable setting facilitates an agreeable atmosphere.
  • The parties maintain control of the terms of the settlement and decide together what is best for them.
