Mediation is orchestrated in fair and even-handed manner in
a relaxed yet business-like atmosphere by the mediator. It also
minimizes stress and emotional trauma for all concerned.
Mediation provides for the individual's personal involvement
by allowing him or her a chance to "process" the
issues in their own minds and come to a personal resolution.
Mediation allows the parties to retain a significant degree
of control and the mediator controls the process, and the
parties control the settlement agreement outcome.
Mediation allows all parties uninterrupted time to state positions
and speak to the issues and provides a platform to express
emotions, frustrations and underlying concerns.
Mediation focuses on feelings and interests rather than on
law and facts. The parties also settle disputes and comply
with agreements because they want to not because they are
forced to do so.
Mediation is future paced; what can be done to resolve this
dispute and possibly prevents such disputes in the future.
Mediation is cost effective and it significantly costs less
than a jury trial and less costly emotionally than allowing
a conflict to go unresolved.
Mediation is expedient and timely.
Mediation is a confidential and voluntary procedure. The parties
have nothing to lose and everything to gain -- it's win/win
Mediation generally produces a favorable outcome and a high
degree satisfaction of all parties involved.
