3 Benefits of Mediation

Anybody involved in a lawsuit quickly discovers that the process can be more complex than initially thought. The idea of standing in front of a judge is enough to make most people feel uneasy, but fortunately, the majority of cases are settled before getting to court through a process called mediation.

Having a mediation attorney to represent both parties helps reduce stress and facilitate effective communication so that a settlement can be reached.

Here are just some of the benefits that mediation has to offer:

  • Cost savings. Using a mediator can eliminate the need for multiple attorneys in the instance of divorce and other situations, making it more cost-effective than litigation. Data shows that mediation can cut costs up to 60%.
  • No worries about court dates. When working with a mediator, there is no need to appear in court. A courtroom atmosphere and judge can make an uncomfortable situation even more tense, and mediation offers a more relaxed environment with a mediator engaging in two-way dialogue with you, instead of judging you.
  • A settlement that is fair for both parties. One of the biggest benefits of mediation is that it allows for both parties to come to an agreement on compensation or a settlement that is fair for both parties. Agreements can be tailored more than a courtroom ruling, allowing both sides to make the best of the situation.

While mediation is a great option for many, it may not suit your specific needs. The team of professionals here at the BCN Law Firm in Clermont would be honored to sit down with you and help determine if mediation is the right choice for you.
