DEVELOPING AN AGREEMENT

Our Mediation Services

Are you stuck in a dispute that’s not going anywhere despite repeated efforts to resolve it? Perhaps you’ve been thinking about hiring a lawyer to battle it out in court for you. Instead, you may want to consider our mediation services here at the Law Offices of Carol Bertsch, PC.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary, common-sense method of resolving problems without the expense and hassle of going to court. In mediation, the conflicting parties meet with a neutral person to assist them in negotiating their differences in an amicable manner. The goal of mediation is for both parties to develop an agreement, which can have the validity of a contract and may be upheld in a court of law.

Advantages of Mediation

Mediation has many advantages over litigation. Mediation is:

  • Efficient: Sessions are usually held within two weeks at a convenient time.
  • Effective: Issues causing the conflict are identified and addressed.
  • Restorative: Mediation helps preserve and restore relationships by addressing issues through compromise and negotiation rather through the highly-charged adversarial process of litigation.
  • Confidential: The content of the mediation is private, known only to participants.
  • Empowering: The ultimate authority belongs to the participants themselves instead of having a judge determine their fate.
