Mediation is the parties’ process.

negotiation process that everyone can trust. From there, we can explore viable

here is a general overview of how many mediations proceed.
I design every mediation with input from the parties
and tailored to meet their needs.
Your mediation statement should not remotely resemble a motion for summary judgment. If you are going to make a submission to the mediator, provide insights about the case that she can use to explore settlement.
