Benefits of Mediation
Mediation can be FAR less expensive. In a lawsuit or arbitration, there are out-of-pocket fees, expensive retainers, investigation costs, filing fees, witness payments, administration fees and other expenses that can add up very quickly.
Mediation is FAST. A lawsuit can drag out for years. Even "fast track" arbitration can take many months. Mediating a case to successful completion can be accomplished in a matter of days or weeks.
Mediation means you stay in control. In mediation, you control the outcome, not someone else. In a lawsuit, attorneys, courts and judges are the parties in charge and ultimately, they will decide your fate.
Mediation is confidential. What is said in mediation generally cannot be used against you in court. Whereas, any sworn statement you give, whether in a deposition or to an insurance representative, can potentially be used against you.
Mediation is less stressful. Mediators are trained to control the process and keep adversarial arguing to a minimum whenever possible. .If attorneys are present, they may make a statement of facts. However, Legal Solutions encourages parties to participate actively: it is when the parties are "heard" that progress gets made. Sometimes all it takes is a little "icebreaker" to start a rush to resolution.
Mediated settlements last longer. A settlement worked out in direct communication between the parties and facilitated by a mediator is more likely to stand the test of time. This is because disputants create their own settlements in ways that work for them. This provides clarity, keeps control of the process and gives everyone a vested interest in making the resolution a successful one.
