Alternatives to Going to Trial Mediation

Did you know that most of the civil cases filed in court are resolved without going to trial?. Many people use processes other than trial to reslove their disputes. These alternative processes, known as Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR, are typically less formal and adversarial than trial, and many use a problem-solving approch to help the parties reach agreement.

Beacuse of the potential advantages, it is worth considering using ADR before filing a lawsuit or the early stages of a lawsuit.

Mediation is one those alternatives.
