Mediation is a process by which two or more parties in a dispute come together with their own attorneys to negotiate an agreement. Mediation can be used for any dispute, from family matters to business disputes. Here at Cobb Cole, our trained and licensed mediators are experienced in mediating legal disputes involving:
- business disputes
- tort claims
- real estate claims
- condominium and homeowners’ association disputes
- personal injury claims
- insurance disputes
- family law
While third-party neutrals have always been available to help parties settle disputes out of court, today’s mediators undergo specific training beyond what was traditionally required for traditional forms of alternate dispute resolution, such as arbitration.
Each party retains its attorneys throughout the process so that they receive legal advice and representation during every stage, but everything that occurs during the mediation itself is confidential.
Mediation has become a significant part of modern civil litigation and is a vital tool for many legal disputes. Mediation is a great way to settle disputes because it allows you to maintain control over your case while saving time and money. Unlike other forms of dispute resolution, mediation is private and confidential; this allows both parties involved in the mediation process to speak openly about their concerns without fear of public scrutiny or embarrassment.
Additionally, because no lawyers are involved in this type of negotiation process (unless specifically requested), there will be no additional fees associated with using this method as opposed to hiring an attorney directly.
In mediation, you and your adversary will sit with a neutral third party to discuss your issues in an informal setting. The mediator does not take sides but instead works to facilitate communication between you and the other party. This process allows each person to express their feelings openly without fear of judgment or retaliation from the other party. In addition, it will enable them to come up with creative solutions that may have been impossible through traditional means like litigation.
Mediation is Private
In addition to the privacy that mediation offers; it is more private than other court proceedings. This can be important for families going through an already difficult time.
In high-profile cases, keeping the proceedings out of the media is especially important.
Disputants often feel empowered by mediation because it allows them to bring their needs and interests to the table and create solutions tailored to their unique situations. In a court setting, on the other hand, disputants may feel as though their voices are not being heard, and this could lead to further frustration and tension between parties during litigation.
Mediation also gives disputants more control over the outcome than they would have in court. Many people choose mediation because they want something other than money or property- peace of mind!
