What are the benefits of mediation?

Mediation allows you to control your own dispute and resolve the problem yourself, rather than having a judge or jury decide it for you. It promotes communication and cooperation. It is confidential, avoiding public disclosure of personal problems, and it can be completed in less time than litigation, allowing you to move ahead with your life.

In a mediation session, everyone has the opportunity to voice their concerns and the privilege of speaking without interruption. Mediation encourages the parties to develop alternative ways of solving the issues at hand.
