Occasionally, individuals may wish to understand their legal rights during mediation and choose to have an attorney accompany them.

Her role is to facilitate the mediation as an impartial third party.
Is Mediation Right For Me?
Mediation involves a neutral third party who steps in to resolve a legal dispute, aiming for a settlement through compromise or reconciliation. It’s a highly preferred method for resolving civil disputes.
This process offers the conflicting parties an opportunity to address and settle their interpersonal issues, which may extend beyond the original conflict. Mediation is particularly beneficial in the following scenarios:
- Contractual Disputes
- Conflicts between Employees and Employers
- Disputes between Landlords and Tenants
- Divorce Settlements
- Agreements related to Child Custody
- Agreements involving Child Support
- Support Agreements/Alimony-related Paperwork for the Spouse
Is mediation better than litigation?
Compared to a court trial, mediation is often less time-consuming and less costly. A trial involves an extensive process, including evidence collection, witness testimonies, and multiple court appearances. In contrast, mediation typically resolves disputes in just a few sessions.
Mediation empowers the disputing parties to find a resolution, rather than relying on a judge’s decision. This flexibility can lead to outcomes that might not be possible in a court setting. Additionally, mediation offers privacy, as sessions are not public and do not require transcription, allowing for confidentiality as desired by the parties involved.
