Mediation is a voluntary process in which a trained and impartial third party conducts discussions and negotiations among disputing parties specifically designed to aid them in reaching a mutually acceptable agreement on all or any part of the issues that they have in dispute. Parties may choose to attend mediation to try and resolve their issues prior to filing court action or a judge may order parties to mediation.
During the mediation process, the Mediator serves as a guide to the parties. The mediator does not make decisions; during mediation, theparties decide. One of the most powerful things about mediation is that the parties are in control of the outcome. If the parties can agree to all matters in their dispute, the mediationcan be finalized in the same day. Parties are encouraged and welcome to have their attorney present with them at mediation. Attorneys' role during mediation is to advise their clients of their legal rights.
