Boutwell Law Mediation Services
The Role of Mediators
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution to help people settle disputes. In mediation, no one tells you how to settle a dispute. Instead it is up to you and the other party to find a way to come to an agreement. You do not have to be sworn in, documents do not have to be shared and you can choose what information you bring to the table. Mediators take an unbiased stance on the issue and the outcome does not affect them making them neutral facilitators in the case.
What are Mediation Services?
Mediation as defined by FindLaw is “a procedure in which the parties discuss their disputes with the assistance of a trained impartial third person(s) who assists them in reaching a settlement. It may be an informal meeting among the parties or a scheduled settlement conference. The dispute may either be pending in a court or potentially a dispute which may be filed in court. Cases suitable for mediation are disputes in commercial transactions, personal injury, construction, workers compensation, labor or community relations, divorce, domestic relations, employment or any other matters which do not involve complex procedural or evidentiary issues. Attendance at the mediation conference is voluntary by the parties, except where governed by statute or contract clause.”
A mediator is “a person with patience, persistence and common sense. She/he has an arsenal of negotiation techniques, human dynamics skills and powers of effective listening, articulation and restatement. The mediator is a facilitator who has no power to render a resolution to the conflict.”
Who would need Mediation Law Services?
