Why Mediation?

After 30 years of litigating cases, I am convinced that mediation is a better way in the vast majority of cases. The typical case that is litigated can last for years and be prohibitively expensive. During the pendency of the action, the case continues to exact an emotional toll on the litigants. Often the adversarial setting does not allow for a solution that would make both parties feel good about the situation.

Alternatively, mediation is less costly than litigation. Often the case can be resolved in a day or two rather than years. Even more important is the fact that mediation is confidential. Since the parties create the solution to the dispute with the expert help of the mediator, at the end of the day, everyone leaves more satisfied.
