A judge can order the parties to mediation before trial or the parties can agree to mediation. Frequently, clients decide that mediation is preferred over arbitration or a trial. The decision to mediate and the selection of the mediator require thoughtful evaluation. We have represented many clients during short and long and complex mediations covering a wide variety of disputes. Family law cases and other family disputes can be particularly suitable for mediation. The prudent selection of the mediator varies with the type of dispute and personalities of the clients. Having used many mediators and being able to speak to fellow attorneys about local and nearby mediators enables us to better advise our clients as to which mediator would work best for their case or dispute.
Some of our clients have preferred private arbitration rather than a jury trial or trial by a judge. Our extensive experience in both arbitrations and trials gives us the necessary basis to fully advise our clients about whether arbitration or a trial would best meet their needs. Our experience gained in arbitrations, including one arbitration which lasted seven days, provides insights we pass to our clients. We will compare the cost and the timelines associated with a trial as compared to arbitration. With the help of our experience and contacts, our clients are involved in the selection of the arbitrator, and are able to make the best decision as to which arbitrator would be most effective for their lawsuit or dispute.
