When it comes to legal disputes, judge or juries reach a verdict on only a small number of cases. Instead, many disputes are resolved, and courts increasingly encourage litigants to resolve, through some form of alternative dispute resolution like mediation.
This out-of-court proceeding allows parties to work together to find a compromise that resolves their dispute. These proceedings are seen as particularly beneficial because they are often more efficient and cost-effective than a trial and also give each party the opportunity to contribute to a solution rather than gambling on a verdict or ruling going the right way and then having a judge or jury choose the compensation.
Whether considering whether mediation might be appropriate in the future or already have mediation date looming in the future, Van Gorp Legal Services can assist with your civil mediation.
