Mediation is an excellent tool for parties to use to facilitate a settlement of some if not all outstanding issues in their case. Mediation allows the parties to meet and attempt to settle the case while having some say in the cases outcome. Once the case is placed in a judge’s hands the parties lose all control over the outcome of their case but mediation gives them the opportunity to have some control over how the case will be resolved. Most cases in Orlando, FL are able to be entirely if not partially resolved in mediation. Everything that is said in mediation is confidential and cannot be used against either party in future litigation. This confidentiality allows the parties the freedom to offer suggestions for settlement that they may not have otherwise been inclined to offer.
In Florida parties are required to go to mediation prior to seeing a judge regarding the issues in the pending case. Most counties offer court run mediation programs at a discounted rate. While county run mediation can be good some cases may require a private mediation, this will be left up to the parties and their attorneys to decide.
