The benefits of Mediation over Litigation
12th February 2020 by Kenneth Clarke
Following is words from an American Attorney on the benefits of Mediation….
“Many people who have never been involved in a lawsuit think you get your day in court to tell your story, and then the judge issues a decision. That is just not how it works. Because most cases settle, you will likely never get in front of a judge! Beyond that, even if you do have a trial, you won’t really get to tell your story unfettered, because trials are conducted by attorneys asking witnesses questions, not by witnesses providing long narratives. The reality is that the path to trial is long, stressful, adversarial, very expensive and rarely leads to satisfying results.
The purpose of mediation is to get you talking about how to settle every issue right away, so the process is usually much faster, much less expensive, much less stressful and overall much more satisfying than litigation”.
Moving on from his words, this comparison chart delves deeper into the differences between the litigation and mediation processes.
