Litigation can often be a lengthy and expensive process. If you have ever been a party to a lawsuit, you probably know that the wheels of justice turn slowly. Moreover, there are times when justice is hard to achieve when left to the hands of 12 jurors and a judge. That is why the Alternative Dispute Resolution process can be so important to resolving conflict. Mediation is one of the most important types of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In mediation, the parties participate voluntarily and attempt to negotiate a resolution to their dispute with the help of a third-party neutral. When effective, mediation can drastically shorten the conflict resolution process and save thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars.
