Mediation is a voluntary process whereby parties use a neutral and impartial third party to assist the parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution to their problems. Mediation should not be confused with arbitration whereby the third party will make a decision or case evaluation whereby a recommended settlement will be issued. In mediation, the mediator will facilitate a safe environment where not only attorneys but parties can speak and be heard so that the parties can mutually solve their problems. Recent statistics show that approximately eighty per cent of cases that mediate resolve and that eighty percent of those cases show that the agreements continue to be abided by the parties. Therefore, mediation in many cases may be more cost effective than litigation.
