Litigation puts at risk the time, talent and treasure of clients and equally important, their peace of mind.Mediation empowers clients to be in charge of the early resolution of their claims. The purpose of mediation is for the plaintiff to learn the highest possible amount that the defendants will pay to settle their claim before investing more money in the defense of their claim to lower plaintiff’s recovery. Plaintiff can then compare this amount against the likely net amount plaintiff will receive from a likely verdict when plaintiff bears the costs of further attorney’s fees and court costs in proceeding to a trial verdict.
Similarly, mediation allows a defendant to learn the lowest settlement figure that the defendant will have to pay to settle the claim as of the date of the mediation. Mediation allows the parties, early in the litigation process, to assess the risk and cost of proceeding to trial versus the certainty of an early settlement amount.In mediation we use our actual trial experience and skills to assist you in the early evaluation of your claim.
