Mediation Timeframe

When does the mediation session happen?

Mediations can take place early in a case, in the middle of the case, or at the end of the case, just before the trial. The mediation requires that the parties either attend the mediation in person or by video conferencing. At no time are the parties in the same room.

Mediation Process

You may have some concerns surrounding going to mediation. If you have had your deposition take place, you may fear that the mediation will be similar. It is not. You do not have to provide testimony. You should feel free to discuss any issues with your mediator and know that what you tell your mediator is confidential. By the time you attend your mediation, your attorney will have prepared a Mediation Statement that outlines the facts and the law about your case.


Mediation is Confidential

Mediation allows the parties to control the process and the outcome of the dispute.  It saves time, money, and stress. Once the mediation begins, you may be asked questions about your case. If you decide you want your mediator to know certain facts, you are free to discuss them. Everything said in each room is confidential.
