MEDIATION ADVISORS, LLC
Mediation is an alternative to litigation. While it may not solve every dispute, mediation is becoming increasingly popular for many and for many different reasons. Until recently, it was perhaps best known as a successful alternative to court litigated divorces. Now the advantages and benefits to both parties involved are more widely understood, making mediation the preferable option.
To help you determine which path to resolution may best suit your needs, we suggest that you consider the following:
Here’s how it Works:
A mediator is the neutral party between two disputing parties. The process of mediation provides a neutral and confidential setting for the participants to discuss their respective views on the issue or cause of the dispute. Both parties have equal weight; both parties determine the settlement, while the mediator facilitates negotiations for them. The goal is to reach a binding agreement between the parties, which is based on both parties’ complete understanding of the issues, options for settlement and the alternatives in the event the matter remains unsettled.
If there is no agreement, the parties may use legal remedies such as private lawsuits.

Lawyers and Mediators
As mediators we encourage parties to develop an agenda, identify key interests, and create a realistic action plan which both parties can commit to and implement. We do this in a time saving, cost-effective way. This approach encourages trust and goodwill.
As attorneys, we, too, are skilled problem solvers, and help parties negotiate reasonable solutions. However, we offer added value based on our legal experience and perspective. We are knowledgeable about the probability of a case’s success in court, and about how much time trial and appeal may take. Routinely, we assist clients by evaluating available options and weighing the merits of settlement proposals. We are aware of a judge’s perspective as well as clients’ expectations about the value of their cases or the likelihood of success at trial.
Finally, from beginning to end, we check the facts. We make sure every detail is well executed. Often, this can make - or break - a deal.
Mediation Advisors, LLC combines these strengths and experiences for the benefit of both parties.
