What is Mediation?
California Rules of Court, Rule 1620(a) defines “Mediation” as follows:
‘ “Mediation” means a process in which a neutral person or persons facilitates communication between
the disputants to assist them in reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.’
Why Choose Mediation?
Unlike trial or arbitration, Mediation allows the parties themselves to make all the decisions. Experience tells us that most parties don’t really want a trial, but they do want to be heard, particularly by the other side. Mediation is usually the least expense of all the dispute resolution methods. Why Choose Mediation?
