Mediation is dispute resolution method in which a neutral third party assists the disputing parties in reaching a mutually agreeable solution. Mediation is nonbinding – no party can be compelled to accept the recommendations of the mediator. In almost every serious lawsuit, the Court will require the parties to engage in mediation with the goal of settling the lawsuit and avoiding the time and expense of trial.
