Mediation is as an assisted settlement negotiation process for people in conflict or dispute who want to stay out of court. The parties meet with a neutral third person who helps them talk about the dispute in ways that they could not do on their own and then provides guidance for working out a mutually-acceptable resolution.
Parties in mediation are in control of the outcome of their case because the mediator is not acting as a judge, does not make rulings and has no authority to impose a settlement. The mediator helps the parties communicate with each other, facilitates their negotiation and assists them in finding a resolution based on their needs. The process is voluntary, highly-successful, private and confidential, saves time and money, and helps people in conflict preserve their relationships with one another.
Choosing a mediator is a cost effective, but effective way to resolve conflicts and disputes, including those which are complex and high value. The intervention of a skillful mediator can effectively workout disputes that were not able to budge for some time. Mediation also allows for parties to solve conflicts in such a way that the courts simply cannot do.
This is why mediation is seen as a more peaceful and accepted solution that ends and resolves conflicts of any magnitude.
