Advantage of Mediation

Mediation has multiple advantages over traditional litigation in all areas of the law:

  • Resolves disputes quicker
  • Less costly than trial
  • Relaxed, informal setting
  • Private and confidential
  • Parties maintain control over outcome
  • Preserves relationships moving forward
  • Comfortable and well lit
  • In-Person and ZOOM Mediation available (learn more)

Due to the overcrowding in the court system you may not get your day in court for months or even years. Unlike litigation…

The Court System is backlogged with cases - Advantage Mediation can settle grievances outside the court.

"Through the years I discovered, the courtrooms backlogged for months on simple cases. Court was highly stressful on my clients, wasteful of both the client's time and money and produced outcomes that were not always in the best interest of the parties. In my private practice I encouraged people to settle their grievances, when possible, outside of court. I now enjoy facilitating settlements that leave both parties satisfied with the outcome, while saving them time and money. I believe compassion, creative solutions and level heads are the key to success. Advantage Mediation fosters all of these in a comfortable setting for all parties."
