EXTENDING THE OLIVE BRANCH THROUGHOUT FLORIDA

Disputes happen. Whether you are pre-suit or already in litigation, mediation provides an opportunity to attempt a resolution.

 

Unresolved problems are frustrating. People can go months, even years, with an outstanding matter that costs time, money and interferes with their life. With the help of an effective mediator, many disputes can be settled in a matter of hours. While there is no guarantee, mediation has statistically demonstrated proven results.

 

Mediators love to help. There is no better feeling than seeing people shake hands when a disagreement ends. They are relieved and can move forward. If you or your client have an unresolved dispute, extend the olive branch and schedule your mediation conference today.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDIATION, ARBITRATION, AND LITIGATION?

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process that attempts to help all parties collaborate towards reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.  The mediator acts as an impartial person who facilitates the process and negotiations. All control and decision making rests with the parties; the mediator does not have any say or financial interest in the outcome.  Mediation is voluntary and confidential, except where required or permitted by law. If the parties are able to reach a settlement, it is put in writing. Even if an agreement is not reached, mediation can still be useful in obtaining new information or changing attitudes.

Arbitration is another type of ADR process, but it has major differences from mediation. Usually, parties to a dispute will seek arbitration when they want an impartial third-party to make a decision, but do not want the expense or public disclosure of a court proceeding. This is particularly useful when there is a low probability that a mutual agreement can be reached by the parties alone. Each side will present their position to an arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators who will weigh the facts and the law to arrive at a decision. The matter is handled in a private setting.

Litigation is a formal process of handling disputes through the public court system. All decisions are made by a judge. It can be complex and expensive, especially if matters drag on for a long time. Litigants may be represented by an attorney or be pro-se. Arguing a case before the court is an adversarial endeavor that comes with many risks, yet is sometimes necessary. The courts generally look favorably towards those who try to work out their problems through ADR first and then use litigation as a last resort.

The best way to resolve any problem in the human world is for all sides to sit down and talk.
