Mediation offers the advantage of creating a safe place for parties to work through disputes in a productive platform. Navigating settlement is often a rocky road, but sometimes the parties want to avoid or end lengthy and time consuming litigation that often lasts for years. The most promising part of mediation is that there is a conclusion in sight – often within hours or days. Any agreement reached is an agreement between the parties, instead of a decision imposed on the parties against their will. The mediator maintains a neutral position and acts as a catalyst to focus discussion, facilitate exchanges, and to discuss the parties’ respective positions. Most civil matters resolve eventually, quite often at mediation.
