What is the process of mediation?


Mediation takes place typically in the lawyer’s office with both sides being present as well as usually a retired judge or practicing lawyer in the personal injury field. Both parties come together, they get an opportunity to tell their side of the case or their side of the story, and then the mediator, again, typically retired judge, will separate the parties and talk to them individually about their case. The judge then goes back and forth between the parties relaying offers and demands and settlement issues and so forth, until hopefully the parties reach a mutual resolution of the case. Mediation doesn’t always result in settlement, but in the vast majority of the cases in which I’ve been involved, mediation has been successful.
