Choosing a fair and neutral mediator is crucial for reaching the best compromise. At Martin Pringle, our mediators have decades of experience handling situations for large and small businesses in both state and federal courts.
According to most recent statistics, over 90% of all filed lawsuits are ultimately resolved without a trial. Settlements, where the parties themselves decide the outcome of the case rather than leaving it to a judge or jury, are the most common resolution for filed civil actions. And mediation – either voluntary or court-ordered – is often the means to that settlement.
You’ll notice the statistic above references “filed lawsuits” – so that 90% figure doesn’t even take into account the business, family, and other disputes which are resolved before a lawsuit is even filed. Often, those disputes can avoid the courthouse entirely by participating in mediation.
Successful mediations depend largely on the skill and experience of the attorneys involved and the mediator selected. Choosing the right mediator for your situation is crucial.
