Mediation is an alternative to litigation and can save parties significant time and money when attempting to resolve their disputes. Unlike court, mediation is informal. There is no judge and no jury. Each party has ownership in the process and is responsible for reaching a solution that is workable for both sides.
If the parties cannot reach an agreement through mediation, there is no binding decision and they can elect to litigate their case in a court of law. However, if the parties come to an agreement in writing, their agreement is enforceable and binding. Mediation is a preferred alternative to litigation in many cases because it gives the parties certainty and allows them to have some element of control over the outcome of their own case.
