The Mediation Process Works Like This

A mediation session typically begins with a joint meeting of the parties and in some cases, their attorneys or insurance company representatives. The mediator explains the process and gives the parties information about the confidential and non-binding nature of the proceedings.

Next, the mediator will ask each of the parties (or the attorneys, if in attendance) to make a presentation of their case, identifying the issues in dispute. Following the joint meeting, if necessary, the mediator may separate the parties and begin meeting with each party individually in a series of private and confidential meetings. The mediator works with each of the parties to analyze their positions and assists with developing options for settlement.

Mediation sessions may continue until a settlement is reached or it becomes apparent that the mediation will be unsuccessful. Sometimes a dispute may be resolved in a single session, at other times multiple sessions may be needed. Even if the mediation process does not completely resolve the dispute, it often develops solutions to some aspects and helps parties better frame issues for litigation. Legal Solutions can move your case forward to litigation when other methods have failed.

The most important thing to remember about this process is that the parties themselves are in control of the outcome , not some jury or an overworked judge.
