Mediation Joplin MO

Mediation is a procedure in which the parties discuss their disputes with the assistance of a trained impartial third person(s) who assists them in reaching a settlement. It may be an informal meeting among the parties or a scheduled settlement conference. The dispute may either be pending in a court or potentially a dispute which may be filed in court. Cases suitable for mediation are disputes in commercial transactions, personal injury, construction, workers compensation, labor or community relations, divorce, domestic relations, employment or any other matters which do not involve complex procedural or evidentiary issues. Attendance at the mediation conference is voluntary by the parties, except where governed by statute or contract clause.

Mediation of a conflict is often the most control over the conflict or litigation that you will have. You are in the driver seat. You are there to find the common ground to resolve the issue. After mediation, if there is no resolution, the attorneys, the Judge, and the other people in your legal process assume control of the litigation path and that can often mean protracted litigation and great expenses. Remember, you do not have to be court-ordered to benefit from mediation. Call the Law Office of David Meyer today. We are certified in both Domestic and Non-domestic mediation.
