How can I be sure mediation will produce a fair result?

In mediation, you and the opposing parties will work out a solution to your own dispute. Unless you freely agree, there will be no final resolution. This approach has several advantages over going to court:

  • Legal precedents or the whim of a judge will not dictate the solution.
  • If your dispute has undiscovered or undisclosed issues, mediation -- unlike a structured court battle -- gives you the opportunity and the flexibility to ferret them out.
  • Because mediation doesn't force disputants to undergo the fear and sometimes paranoia of the courtroom -- where a judge or jury can stun either party with a big loss -- people who choose mediation tend to be more relaxed and open to compromise.
