Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process, in which the parties try to settle their conflicts on their own outside a court of law. A neutral third-party mediator oversees the proceedings, but has no power to enforce any settlements.
While some mediation processes are ordered by a judge in special circumstances, most are voluntary affairs where both parties mutually agree that it is the best way forward. Moreover, knowing the optimal time to pursue mediation is not easy.
Our mediation specialists at Lerner Conflict Resolution Center are happy to provide you valuable insights to help you decide if mediation is the right way forward for your case.
