Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), where the parties to a lawsuit (or potential lawsuit) meet with a neutral third-party in an effort to settle the case. That third party is called a mediator. The job of a mediator is to listen to the evidence presented by both sides, help the parties try to understand the other’s perspective regarding the dispute, and then facilitate negotiation of a voluntary resolution of the case.
At Great Lakes Legal Group, our focus is to provide cost-effective personal attention and dedication when our clients are confronted with an adversarial dispute. While we do not shy away from zealously advocating for clients in court, we also recognize that not all matters are appropriate for litigation and that other forms of conflict resolution should be explored.
