What is mediation?

Posted on September 24, 2013 | Posted in Civil Litigation, Legal FAQs

Mediation is an alternative to traditional litigation, but it also often takes place as a step within litigation. The parties to an action meet to try to negotiate a settlement. This dispute resolution method is usually less costly than a trial, if it is successful. Mediation gives the parties more control over the outcome of the case than taking a chance with a judge’s decision at trial.
