When most people think of mediation, their thoughts turn to spouses who want to get divorced but have chosen to do so in a more informal setting where cooler heads can prevail. No judges. There are no attorneys or bickering over who gets the house or the boat. Just two people working out their differences with help from an impartial third-party mediator. Mediation is one of the most recognizable forms of alternative dispute resolution in the context of family law. But is it only used in this practice area?
No. In fact, mediation is a valuable process to settle differences in a variety of complex legal situations.
- Family law
- Employment law
- Personal injury
- Business and commercial law
- Real estate
What is mediation?
Litigation can be a lengthy and expensive process. If you have ever been a party to a lawsuit, you probably know that the wheels of justice turn slowly. Moreover, there are times when justice is hard to achieve when left in the hands of 12 jurors or a judge. That is why the alternative dispute resolution process can be so important in resolving conflict. Mediation is one of the most effective types of ADRs in that the parties participate voluntarily and negotiate a resolution to their dispute with the help of a third-party mediator.
Mediation can drastically shorten the conflict resolution process and save thousands of dollars when done correctly.
A few benefits of mediation include:
- A fair and neutral environment
- Improved communication and cooperation
- No need for protracted litigation
- Win-win for all parties
- Less stress, anxiety, and frustration
- A cheaper, efficient, and amicable process
