How does mediation work?

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process facilitated by a neutral third-party.
Here's a brief overview:

Parties agree on a mediator, usually an attorney familiar with the issues.

The mediator schedules a mediation session, typically a half or full day.

Parties send confidential statements to the mediator summarizing their position.

In the mediation session, the mediator helps both sides communicate, identify interests and find common ground.

With the mediator’s guidance, parties aim to reach a mutually acceptable settlement agreement.

If successful, the mediator drafts a binding contract outlining the mediated settlement terms.

Mediation provides a constructive forum to resolve disputes through interest-based negotiation rather than enduring lengthy court battles. The process is confidential and focused on achieving mutual progress.

Can what I discuss in mediation come back to bite me in a court case?

The mediation process is confidential. That means mediators cannot be called to testify and any documents or admissions made in mediation are inadmissible as evidence. You can engage openly in mediation without worrying it will hurt your legal position later.
