  Why Mediation Works 
  • Mediation keeps control in the hands of the parties involved.
  • Parties choose mediation anytime they decide to avoid litigation.
  • Parties have a veto over every provision of the mediated agreement.
  • Based on mutual gains, the individuals involved work out the solutions and terms of their settlement agreements.
  • The average session takes two hours. The number of sessions commonly vary from 2-8
  • Mediation can cut the cost of legal fees because the actual parties in a dispute resolve their issues themselves.
  • The parties involved control how long the process takes.
  • Parties are usually more satisfied with solutions that have been mutually agreed upon.
  • Parties are more likely to abide by the terms of a mediation agreement.
  • That's why mediated settlements tend to hold up over time.
