  • Why Mediation?

    • Litigation can be a time consuming and costly proposition for most people. Mediation is a great, alternative way for people and businesses to resolve disputes without enduring trial. Mediation can be ordered by a court or requested by one or more parties to an action pursuant to Alabama Code § 6-6-20.

    • Mediators are neutral third parties. This neutrality means that the mediator does not have a stake in the outcome of the mediation, nor do they advocate for one side or the other. Mediation is an informal, nonadversarial process with the only goal being a mutually acceptable agreement between parties. 

    • Mediation is confidential, which allows parties to keep their information private while preserving relationships and creating an opportunity for win-win possibilities. It also allows parties to focus on their individual needs and interests rather than centering only on the facts, rights and responsibilities of the parties.

    • Mediators do not make a final judgment on a case. They do, however, provide a method by which parties can reach mutual agreement on the outcome of a particular case or set of facts. Mediation agreements are reduced to writing and signed by both parties. This creates a contract basis for enforcement of the agreement.
