How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

My firm is an advocate for the mediation process as an advantageous initial way of attempting to resolve the dispute. I have a strong mediation educational background, and use that knowledge base and skill set when advocating for my clients. If, however, a company isn't attending mediation in good faith, then it is time to move to the next stage of the legal process.
