Mediation is a successful method of resolving disputes that allows the participants to end conflict without the expense and difficulties that litigation can bring. In mediation, a trained mediator uses conflict resolution skills to help parties find solutions to conflicts that are optimal for both parties for family law matters, real estate matters, business matters, and others. Mediation has many benefits.
What are the Benefits of Mediation?
- Low Cost = no retainer; pay as you go.
Mediation is an alternative to litigation that can save time and money and prevent the turmoil that often accompanies litigation. For example, divorce in Arizona can be very expensive and time-consuming. An Arizona Divorce can up to a year to complete. It is not uncommon for parties to run up attorney fees of $20,000.00 or more per side. In mediation, participants can often settle their matter in hours for around $2,000.00 plus costs.
Mediation is quickly becoming one of the most popular means to resolve conflicts. Families, businesses, and individuals turn to mediation because, quite simply, it is highly successful. The American Arbitration Association has found that mediation results in settlement over 85 percent of the time. It is hard to argue with results.
