The entire legal system is ultimately aimed at resolving disputes. Unlike court, mediation allows the parties to determine their own fate in a confidential process, by compromise and agreement. A mediated agreement, once approved, is enforceable by court. The value of resolution, without the costs, stress and uncertainties of litigation, is immeasurable.
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process that has blossomed and grown for many reasons, but primarily because mediation works. Mediation, unlike arbitration and trial, empowers the parties, not a third party, to make the decision – to decide one’s own fate. Through mediation, parties can talk openly about options for solving the issues, ultimately choosing to settle or not.
